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.
