It's been awhile...and 1/2 way

I've been a bad blogger. I admit it. I'm sorry. I've neglected you.

Honestly, I've not stitched in weeks. I want to but when I get home from work, I am DOG tired. So tired that I do a few things around the house and then C-R-A-S-H. I sleep like a rock but wake up tired. My DH says that it's stress from work. Work hasn't been fun the last couple of weeks. That's putting it mildly.

I saw that Prairie Schooler released new Fall, Christmas and Winter designs. And the new 2009 Santa! I LOVE Prairie Schooler and even though I have enough stash to last 14 lifetimes, I've pre-orderd them from E-Handcrafts Stitching Room:

And now for the 1/2 way. It seems that I stitch a pattern until I hit the 1/2 way point and then it goes put in the Wip pile. I have ahem, MANY Wips that are finished 50% to completion. I am sad to say this. I swear I have Stitcher's ADD. And I have NO desire to work on them at this time. Has any one felt this way? I think it's the reason for my slump. I am in a slump.
I am sad.
Oh, and we are 5 weeks away from the wedding! OMGosh, I can't believe it's almost here! The invitations were mailed this week, details are getting completed, the kid's got their liscence, booked their honeymoon cruise and I'm holding on tight!
Thanks for the nice comments about the Bridal Shower. It truly was lovely. Don't you just love my GF's home? TOO DIE for!!! Jenna had a lovely, lovely day.
Well, thanks for stopping by. I love that you come and visit, even though I've not had much to say. I am hoping that changes REALLY, REALLY SOON!

I have the same problem with stitcher's add! I have projects I started 14 or 15 years ago that I pull out occasionally and swear that I'm going to finish. sigh.

Maybe after the wedding it will be better for you!

Cant wait to see wedding pictures.

Hello, Bad Blogger Joanie! I saw those new PS charts too and I kept saying 'look away!' but that santa on the sleigh looks too cute!

Good luck with the wedding. I'm sure after that is over, you'll just collapse in a heap, then be in a stitching whirlwind!

Take care!

Aren't they great, the new PS charts? I will have to order them as well.
I don't have too many WIPs but most of them are finished up to 1/2 or 3/4. And every once in a while I pull them out and stitch a bit on them. But I have to admit that starting something new is more exciting, lol.
I hope you will be able to destress soon and then your stitching mojo will be back.
