I Need A Seaside Retreat

I'm afraid things haven't improved here since my last post. My stress levels are at an all time high and most days have involved tears and panic attacks which are scary. All I can do is pray that things start to improve soon as I don't know how much more this body can handle right now.
The only saving grace is that my stitching, when I force myself to sit down and do some, is a godsend. It's helping take my mind off things for a little while and easing the panic attacks on occasion.
I have updates on all my Wips but I worry that you might get bored seeing the same ones everytime so today I'm just posting my new start from last week, BBD Seaside Retreat and a full pic of my Personalised Sampler now I've finished another page.

Stitched 2x2 on 32ct white evenweave using HDF Ocean Breeze.

Stitched 1x1 on 25ct antique white evenweave using HDF Bewhined. I've now stitched 6 of the 20 pages in this and really beginning to feel like I'm getting somewhere with it.
Well that's it from me for now. Hope everyone is staying safe in the awful weather we seem to be having here in the UK and overseas.
Till next time.

So sorry you're having a bad time Lisa. Panic attacks are horrible (speaking from bitter experience) so I hope things settle down for you soon and you start feeling better.

Could never get bored of seeing your wips. Although I did worry the same about being a one at a time girl. I hope you feel better soon. Lovely progress and great new start.

Sally said...

I do hope things improve for you soon Lisa. I know how things can affect us {{{{hugs}}}} and panic attacks are not nice at all.

Love your new start! The colour you're using is gorgeous.

Well done on finishing the page on PS. It is lovely.

Lisa, hope things start getting better for you soon! Oh how I like the color of your Seaside Retreat, Ocean Breeze. Great progress on your sampler, it is wonderful. Who is the designer?

I'm never bored seeing your wips; I enjoy viewing what others are stitching, even if they haven't added much stitching since last post.

Take care, Lisa

Sending you {{{hugs}}} across the ocean.

I live near the sea, come for a visit! It's so blummin' windy here it'll blow any blues away!

I love your personalised sampler - it's gorgeous. I've not seen it before, it what way is it personalised? Do you get a choice of motifs?
