I Tried, I Really, Really Tried

Today was glorious day here in New Hampshire. The temp reached 80 degrees and the sun was shining. I was feeling good this morning and cleaned the kitchen, dining room and living room. I opened the windows and let the fresh air flow through the house. I did my 15 minutes of walking and ate lunch.

This afternoon I couldn't stand it anymore and decided to take a drive to the LQS to see if I could find some inspiration to get me stitching again. I found this wonderful bubble print on sale and bought what was left on the bolt, about two yards. I also bought some black Kona cotton for a wall hanging that's been dancing around in my head. I got a little nervous going out by myself, but I think I did OK.

When I got home I pulled out one of my Butterfly Garden stitchery blocks and tried to work on it. It's full of straight lines and I could only manage two short lines before I couldn't do it anymore. I would really like to have a stitchery that has more than straight lines. I dug through my stitchery projects and I don't have any projects that are marked/traced and ready to go. Would anyone like to come and trace some stitcheries for me? A visit from a fellow stitcher would be fun.

I wish I lived closer.....Personally, I enjoy tracing off the patterns. You know, mty suggestion is that you completely disregard the negative feeling of buying at the LQS! It was much cheaper than medicine, a massage or manicure & pedicure! You, my dear, are ahead of the game!! Plus I don't know how many "healing points" one can get from LQS therapy but it must be a very high number!!! Sending you cyber hugs and chicken soup...

You WILL fell better soon - I went through (going through?) some severe post partum (sp?) depression when the twins were born and then the exhaustion factor from them being 'here' and having to work full-time... All I say is, thank goodness for meds!

I hate feeling like I 'want' to craft/quit, yet the 'gumption' doesn't come.

You are not alone.

And you will feel better.

Man, I wish I wasn't on the other side of the country . . . I'd hop right on over for a play date in a red hot minute *S*

I would love to pop round but sadly distance is a barrier. Hope your mojo returns soon.
