It has been an interesting month here in Seoul, Korea. With all this talk of our imminent destruction in a massive sea of fire, I thought I would start out with the ground truth. It is cherry blossom season and what joy the sight of these trees bring me. This is the park next to our base on my Sunday walk this afternoon.
While the international media is having a field day hyping the threat, we are pretty much living our lives as normal here on the main U.S. military base in Seoul. That said, as I work for the big U.S. military command here, my job has kept me busy, but not as busy as others, such as my husband. I will say that busy or not, the work is very rewarding and the people I work with, uniformed and civilian, are truly the salt of the earth.
My stitching time has definitely suffered this past month due both to work and commitment stitching, but mainly work. I don't seem to have the physical and mental energy, nor the mindset, to sit and stitch at the end of the day. However, I am not complaining. I know this "crisis" will pass and things will be back to normal. Soon I hope.
I had hoped to be done with the central house motif on Lucretia Maus this month, and almost got there. The darn white mortar has slowed me down. It isn't particularly fun. However, it is almost done and I can move forward soon. Most of the house is over one, which creates a lovely effect.
Thank you all for your continued inspiration. I really enjoy seeing the lovely work being created.
