The Malaise continues

Since I haven't done any stitching in a while I am posting an old photo in celebration of the upcoming Valentine's Day ... at least there is a heart in the design. In any case, the "hands to work" part of the message is one I need to take to heart ... I very much need to get back into my usual stitching routines.

This is so unlike me ... generally I stitch for at least 1 hour after getting up in the morning and before getting ready for work ... usually a bit more because of the just one more stitch syndrome. Then I eat for about 15 minutes of my lunch hour and stitch the remaining 45.

But I have stitched approximately 10 hours for the entire month of January and not at all, at all in February so far ... it's getting so I had to think twice to remember my password for this blog.

But, today, I vow to do at least an hour of stitching ... it's not like I don't have interesting projects on hand ... ones that will give me a great deal of pleasure ... I think I am simply the victim of Inertia ... you know, objects in motion tend to stay in motion and objects at rest tend to stay at rest ... I have been at rest way too long.

On a positive note, I have lost 5 lbs in the last three weeks.

bless your heart. I think we all go through the "not in the mood" to sit and stitch. I havent stitched this month either. I am just soo busy with "life" I will tonight though while hubby is away at a retreat with church. Take care and I hope you get back in to your stitching mood soon,Kimberly

I'm sure your mojo will kick up it's heels in due time and I admit to missing your photo spreads of your work and your reviews!
I have days lately where there just isn't enough of me left to pick up my needle. I put my project beside me on the sofa and I look at it, want to pick it up, look at it some more and then....I just end up laying there, dozing off. Probably better that I didn't touch the wip as I might have had some frogging to do later,lol.
Congrats on the 5 Lbs! YaY!!!

I too, have not been in the "mood" to stitch. I have just had to "make" myself put a few stitches in here and there.
