Happy Lunar New Year
Gung Hay Fat Choy. May the Year of the Ox bring you good health, prosperity, and happiness. Friday was a relaxing day for the four of us since the house was clean. The husband watched Netflix, our daughters played Roblox on their laptops, and I started sewing again.
I made bibimbap in mostly Asian flavors. I loosely followed a Chinese BBQ sauce with what we had and added in a few ingredients. I seasoned boneless chicken thighs with it while making brown and white rice in their respective pots. Bok choy, spinach, and mushrooms were separately sauteed in a pan and drizzled with sesame oil. Then all of these ingredients were placed in sections on plates for consumption.
Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who celebrate. E and I don’t do anything special; however, I did cook some tender, juicy rib eyes today with baked potatoes and boiled corn on the cob. Every bit was devoured of course.
So I ran into trouble with my current sewing project Friday. I needed a mental break from it and because I had taken a late nap Saturday, I decided to try to cross stitch again. Here you see the pillows I used to support my elbows.
I am trying to stitch without the 10″ hoop, holding the soft and dyed Aida fabric in my hands. Also, I’m using both hands to work the needle and thread, left for underneath and right for on top.
Here’s the progress I have as of last night. This is most of the border of the first square.
This design makes me smile. I’m slowly taking my time and trying to remind myself to relax, besides take the time to stretch now and then. I am wearing my compression sleeves and gloves as well.
I hope you are having a nice day. Thank you for your virtual hugs in the past, two posts. Enjoy the rest of your Sunday. TTYS.
