Sigh! I really need to find time to continue
working on my Training Kits.
(Above: collage that compiles embroidery in TK 1-3)
On my "old" blog I used to post occasionally about
them and how things were going. Well,
honestly I haven't touch my Training Kit 3 wip
in a long time.
I sure want to! It is just that even though it is
more satisfying for me to work on this more
"serious" kind of embroidery it does take
a considerable amount of time.
Maybe working a few minutes here and there?
I don't like doing that because it doesn't work for me.

It is not like in simple outline embroidery, in just a few minutes
with just a few common simple stitches outlining the shape of
your design you can make good progress and
even stitch almost everywhere while out and about.
With this type of "serious" embroidery
I want to sit surrounded by
threads, needles, stork embroidery scissors ;-),
lots of sunlight, a refreshing drink, no distractions
and at least 2 to 3 hours every other day
of spare time that I can immerse myself into
some "serious" embroidery!

It takes me about 10-15 minutes to set everything up and get
the atmosphere just right to start working on this type
of more complicated designs, then every element in the
design requires focus, precision and time.
This above is the last Training Kit I started, #3.
There is a total of 6.

I think my only resource could be...
a weekend of binge (lol) embroidering once a month.
Hmmm... I normally do have one weekend
a month without much in my schedule.
That may work!
It has to... because I really can't and I'm not willing to sacrifice
precious time with family and with my personal dedication to my Maker.
I wonder... what is needed, in your case, to
be able to work and enjoy what you love doing?
I will love to hear it!
