I’m coming to you late on Saturday because I almost missed another stitching post until I remembered that I took pictures last Saturday of some of my Stitch Maynia starts and then couldn’t post because I was having issues with WordPress. Today we went to the fair and it was a lot of fun but it was also a lot for me on top of the weather getting pretty hot (heat is a trigger for me) so when we came home I took the coldest shower possible and then went to bed for a while. Which is a long way of saying that I lost the light to take pictures of the projects I started this week but I’m happy that I remembered I still need to share last weeks. For Stitch Maynia I am doing a brand new start every single day (not quite) since I am newly back into the cross stitch world and I have so many things I want to work on. My Rituxan infusion at the end of April ended up being pretty difficult for me and I had ten days where I wasn’t able to do much other then lay on the couch. I was feeling too weak to do any of my stitching which is unfortunate since I have really been enjoying starting all these projects and I look forward to getting to work on throughout the year. I also missed a day of stitching because I spent the day stitching together my Uptown Cardigan. I am working on knitting the second pocket and then I will attach it and hopefully share my finish next week. Anyways, I picked my stitching back up on May 18 so I do have some to share with you today and next Saturday I will share the remainder of my Stitch Maynia projects as well as my June projects I’m adding to the project wheel.
*All patterns can be found on Etsy unless specified otherwise. There is a lot of Stitching with the Housewives since they are my favorite designers. They also have a Youtube channel that I really enjoy watching.
May 8: Bunny Bakery by Stitching with the Housewives
I know it’s hard to tell from this small start but I stitched one bunny ear and started on the second. In the future when I share my projects I will go into full detail about the fabric and floss colors that I am working on but for this month I’m just going to share my starts.

May 19: Liberty Cup
May 20: Bless our Home by Country Cottage Needlework
This is the smallest start and all I did was a tiny bit of the top border. This pattern is Bless Our Home by Country Cottage Needleworks and I bought it at 123 Stitch.
