Making some FSL ornaments. Trying to get back into doing embroidery. It's a slow process. Nothing made for Christmas gifts but working on it. I have NOT gotten Covid but it sure has affected me mentally. I pray all Cuties and their family are well. Hugs and flowers to all, Suzanna

Your work on FSL is admirable. I have my little boy ginger on my tree now. My 8 year old granddaughter decorated the tree. We didn’t get all the bling out that we usually decorate with but it still looks pretty.

The first year of Covid my husband and I only saw ‘people’ when we went out to buy groceries about every 6 weeks. When we did start to get out a little more, I was afraid I’d have anxiety being isolated so long. We are still cautious, don’t get out like we normally did, no eating out at all. I don’t know if we will ever ‘get back to normal’ or if we will just have to redefine our ‘normal’. Your mind is affected, and it’s not just the fear of contracting Covid, it is also the isolation like Betsey said.
I hope you find you a safe normal again and can enjoy your embroidery as well. Quilting kept me sane, even though at the very first I couldn’t get my creative side going. Our crafts saved many of us. X and 0’s to you-Toogie

Ps. I don’t remember getting the girl ginger. I think I would have made her too. I need to go back and check my old DBC files….

I couldn't find my Design by Cutie's file and drove myself nuts for over four hours. Then I came across the file "Cuties" and hoped I had found it. I did manage to find my boy and girl gingers and it was 2008, as posted earlier.

The gingers were a freebie on cute from Nov. 2008 The holly was from Embroidery library set x2757. I also sent you a message. Not sure where I got the trees.

Well done Suzanna, I think you are experiencing what each of us is feeling. It's been hard to get back into the full swing of things.

I know I've been fortunate in that I've had my massive quilt I've been doing, but keep your spirits up, we will all get through this. Love and blessings to you, Chris

I am trying but really need to be pushed. I have an order for some of the Ginger candy holders so I better get busy with that. Thank for your comment and support.

Thanks, I think they will look great on a small tree or gift.

by graceandham 01 Dec 2021

Almost didn't see the trees. A great looking bunch. It's not the COVID, it's the isolation. Streisand was right, people need people.

I know trees sort of fade into the towel. I agree, it has been hard on me. Never had this problem before but then we never had a pandemic like this one. Got my booster yesteray! Thank you for your comment.

Beautiful. Hopefully this will bring back your stitching spirit. I think Covid has affected a lot of us. Hugs back to you.

Thank you! Gingers are reversible , about 3 1/2 in tall, too big for earrings.
