May just be the kickstarter I need!



Yes, we all know I've been in a stitching slump for various reasons. And what do I do? Rejoin FB and sign up to be part of many stitching groups. Oh wow, the eye candy! Yet my needle sits still, gathering dust. Not good. But then Angela at Hooked on Stitches is having a Christmas ornament exchange and after hemming and hawing a bit, I thought, get off your duff and have some fun doing something for someone else. My stitching for others always seems to motivate me as where stitching for myself, well....snooze....

So yes, even though it is still officially Summer (no matter what the stores think they might convince you of otherwise with all their upcoming seasonal holiday displays lol :) yes, I am starting to get a tad excited about this project. Which is weird for me this early in the year but none the less, I think I may look through my stash tomorrow to see what I can come up with for inspiration!

Oh, and if you are interested in signing up for Angela's exchange, I think you have until October 1st. It is an international exchange, stitched & finished ornament only. Here's the link: http://hookedonstitches.blogspot.com/2014/09/first-annual-christmas-ornament-exchange.html

And thank you Angela for organizing this. I really think I need it! Oh and a belated shout out to my newest followers  and to all my current followers - thank you for being patient with me! I will blog more stitching stuff soon!

Hugs to all,
Laura

This is what happened to me at the start of the year and I forced myself to stitch something for someone else and then the stitching bug came back. Hope it works for you too :)
