Once again all I have stitched is the " Wish You Well" monthly block. Two out of three stitcheries are done and I have started the last one. Unfortunately, my stitching is not as good as it used to be and I am finding my backstitches harder to keep even in size but I can't get too hung up on that or I will lose the enjoyment of stitching.
