Quick Update

Thought I'd better post a couple of quick pics before you all assume I've closed my blog and stop visiting completely.
I've been dealing with a few things in my life recently which have got me really down, and when that happens I tend to retreat into myself and avoid people, which I know isn't good for me, but I can't help it.
Unfortunately my stitching is also suffering and I've lost my mojo. I have been doing some but have not stitched more days than I have and some days I've just stared at it for a while before putting it down again in disgust.
Anyway here is a pic of a gift I stitched a while back for a non-blogging friend in the US, who plays floss fairy for me regularly and sends me any US stitching mags I decide I have to have. It is The Cat's Whiskers/Dinky Dyes Collaboration "Friends" scissor pocket released earlier this year, stitched with the silk that came with the chart on 32ct antique white linen.
As well as working a little on my PIF's I've also put a few stitches into my HAED QS Alisha and thought I'd take a pic with the latest column finished.
I have no idea what I'll stitch on next, I seem to be stitching for the sake of it rather than things calling to me, so just taking it as it comes.
If I don't update again for a while, I am still around, I just don't have anything interesting to say or show. I'm sorry as well for not commenting on blogs for a while either, but please know that I do try to read them when I can.

Finished The Page!

I was trying really hard to finish the page before the end of April, but with the way I've been feeling I just couldn't quite manage it. I did however finish it a little while ago so it's off the qsnaps, ironed and shown here in it's full glory. 22.2% done, loads more to go lol.
Now I need to decide what to do next, carry on with Cabin and start another page, or pull out one of my other wips and, if so, which. I think til I get some inspiration I'm going to spend a couple of days on my pif's...
Hope you all have a great weekend, and a long one for those of us in the UK.
