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.

Hi Lisa - I know exactly what you mean but don't worry, just blog when you can. It's good to catch up with what you are up to. The scissor pocket is lovely, hope you find something you really want to stitch soon.

Know exactly what you mean. Don't worry - sometimes you just need a little privacy & space to work through things at your own pace. You'll be back when you've done that (((((((((hugs))))))))). What you have stitched is lovely - am sure your Floss Mom was delighted with her gift & QSA is growing nicely. :0)

This little scissor pocket is so sweet. And so perfectly finished. And you made some nice progress on your HAED.
I'm sorry that you are up to something that keeps you from enjoying life. I hope you will soon be back to stitching and blogging.

I hope you're getting your mojo back. The scissor pocket is absolutely gorgeous and Alisha is so pretty.
