Long Time No Blog

I still haven't been able to find the culprit who stole my stitching mojo a while back, so in the meantime I've been trying to build a new one.
It's a slow process and think it's going to be a long while before I get it like my old one, but at least I'm stitching again most evenings, if only for a short while.
First of all I finished the stitching for the Stitch & Stash BB's March Challenge but unfortunately still haven't got around to making it up into anything. I know it should have been stitched and made up in March but some of you who've lost your mojo before will know when you pick up your stitching and have to frog two for every three stitches you make, it's a sign to put it away again. Anyway, I'll post a pic once I make it up, soon hopefully.
And the other only other stitching I've been doing is Chris' RR which you can find out more about on Quaker Friends . So far I've stitched the two pages on my own, Sally's and Chris'. I think the next one I'll be getting is Tracy's and then Jane's will be my last, and the RR will be finished! We should all get our own pieces back fully stitched around mid July. I haven't seen my piece since I sent it on at the start of the RR, so must say I'm curious to know how it's looking so far. I'm sending Chris' on it's way around the 24th April so going to have a couple of weeks before the next one arrives to start and think I'm going to see if anything starts screaming at me from my wips.
Before I forget, I'd like to try and enlist some help locating a pattern. I have become fixated on a chart I saw by Haberdashery Designs called Voodoo Boy. My boss and I at work are always joking that we should have a voodoo doll to stick pins in when once of our really nasty clients upsets us which is most days lol. As soon as I saw this I knew I had to stitch it for her, but the only place I can find it is Stitching Bits & Bobs, and I really can't afford the extortionate shipping charge for one chart. Does anyone know where else I can get it? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Well, till next time, happy stitching!

It's good to see you blogging again Lisa - hope you soon get your mojo back the way it was! Chris's RR looks lovely - I think I will enjoy stitching that colour too.

These mojo thieves should be shot at dawn.

Mine has come back and I am stitching quite a lot but cannot seem to get my rhythm back and just seem to be flitting from one thing to another and back. I havent bothered too much yet as I know everything will be disrupted when i go into hospital next week anyway but do hope things improve once i am stitching again.

Try They carry Haberdashery Designs and even though the pattern isn't listed on their website, they may be able to get it cheaper for you. Also, their shipping starts at $1.99.

Hope the missing mojo returns in full soon.
Chris' RR looks lovely. I keep having a nosey at the RR site & it's lovely to see all the different colours. :0)
Sorry can't help with the chart: don't know that one.
