A wild story about mosquitoes, aliens, and needlework

Two days ago, I had a long and introspective day in the garden. I focused on an exercise from struthless to organise or better to get the second half of 2021 on track. It was a long exercise, 11 steps with a lot of writing, thinking and a bit of painting (to keep me interested). All in all, I sat for several hours in a hot and humid garden… you remember the wilderness, I call garden.

The next morning, I woke up with this:

Seven mosquito bites on my shoulder, two on my elbow, two at a very intimate place I will not specify and one on my leg. I must have gotten them during my writing day while being concentrate and sitting still for hours, I was the perfect victim for the mosquito.
I found this kind of funny that the most prominent bites were located on my shoulder and appeared as if a crazy doctor tried to vaccinate me countless times. So I posted this photo in my Instagram stories and afterwards a good friend called and we both bonded over a life full of infected and itchy mosquito bites (how unfair is this: both of our loved ones are always free of bites, the mosquito only eat us). My friend had even worse problems with mosquitos last year: one of her bites got so infected/allergic she had to visit the hospital and still has several scars. Although this was clearly no fun for her, we nevertheless got in a humorous mood and envisioned that in our itchy bites some crazy aliens will hatch.

And tada: here we are! The secret project @needleworkmonday challenge “Tease us!”. After my little story you already have a hint which secret project I am working at. But I am sure you have no idea how it will look (imagine me laughing maniacally). I will give you some absolutely unhelpful photos of details and you can dream (others call this kind of dream nightmare) about my project :-DDDDD
