In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

No mojo

For the last week, I've had no mojo.


No desire to stitch, therefore no desire to blog--or no desire to blog so no reason to stitch. Whatever the result, this has been a lost week.

I think it's the heat. Here in my part of the world, we've had temperatures in the mid-90's. In May. On April 2, we had snow flurries. Just a few weeks later, we've moved into August without even seeing May, June, or July. And when it's this hot, even with AC running, I have no desire to do anything other than the absolute necessities.

We finally had a little bit of a break in the weather yesterday--it only got into the high 80's, but I'll take what I can get--and I got the middle panel of Barbara Jackson's Pineapple Perfection stitched.

The owl will have eyes when everything is stitched since I don't want to deal with potentially tangling up my thread on beads until I'm all but through.

So, this leaves just one panel to stitch. Wonder if I can get into the mood to work on it--or could there be something else in the basket that will lure my mojo back?


  1. I can commiserate!!! It's been hot as ---- here too!!! We went to visit our younger daughter last weekend in Brevard, hoping it would be cooler near the mountains but was in the mid 90's!!! Best laid plans and all... It does look like it will be cooler next weekend in OCMD and I'll take the rain if it keeps the temps down. See you then!!!

  2. The middle panel looks super. That owl makes me smil!

  3. Always hard to stitch in the sun .
    Your stitching looks wonderful hope you get your mojo back soon.

  4. I empathize with your high temps as I remember 90s in April quite well from when we lived near DC. Probably shouldn't tell you that our high today here in normally-cloudy NW PA was a sunny 57.

    Love the owl atop the tree! This is such a great design.
