I keep trying!

Lately it seems as if my life conspires to keep me from stitching. Or any crafting really. There's always just SO MUCH to do, take care of etc. My job is very good about making up time when you miss, and if you or someone like your kid has an appointment. But that eats into my time. I had hoped for a normal week this week, but alas THAT isn't happening LOL. I am not sure my life is acquainted with the word normal. Just makes it all more fun!! This is about the only thing I can post for stitching, as I'm not sure where the band sampler picture is hosted at the moment! This is my very slow progress on Waterlily, Garden Pixie from Nora Corbett ( Mirabilia) I'm stitching her on a piece of SMF hand dyed I've had forever. I LOVE this combination!
Have an awesome day!

I joined a Round Robin again in hopes of getting my stitching mojo back - I am VERY happy to report that it seems to be working!! These days I WANT actively to stitch, think about it at work, and plot out what I'm going to do when I get home. This is such a change for me AND I'm happy about it. I am starting to feel like my old self again. It was such a struggle for me to plot out my piece though - I had no confidence at ALL in the colors, the fabrics. I then had to do my part, figure out the design elements. I was so overwhelmed. It seems to be working nicely though!! So - I'm going to try and update here at least 1x a week, mostly on weekends I'd imagine - with pictures of what I'm working on! I have to take some, so I've got no pictures today. I'll update again this weekend! Hugs to all who read and happy stitches to you all!
