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.

Back in the saddle again

 I totally lost my stitching mojo for a couple of weeks. Absolutely nothing in my vast stash appealed in the slightest and I couldn't even make myself thread a needle and take a stitch or two. Normally, that's enough to jump-start my desire to stitch, but not at the moment.

It may have been a mixture of job stress and pandemic fatigue, but whatever it was, it wasn't getting anything done.

Then I started looking for something else entirely and ran across the kits for some ornaments that Barbara Jackson designed for Haus Tirol in Williamsburg the last couple of years. And there is always something about the colors that Barbara uses and happiness of her designs . . . well, I started the Apple Basket on Wednesday and finished it yesterday, then dove right into the Pineapple yesterday and will finish it today.

I have one more to stitch, then I'll do an assembly line finishing and they'll be ready for the tree.

Which is going up this week-end, along with the decking of the halls. We need a little Christmas, right this very minute!


  1. Glad your mojo is does help! We're going to deck the halls this weekend too!

  2. We all go through this .
    Good your mojo is back .
    Enjoy decorating.
