Slowly, slowly my MoJo is coming back

Thanks to everyone for commenting on my last post. I am getting back to normal and feeling more like myself. A few nights, I went to bed with the chickens (one of my Mom's fav sayings). And I am stitching again. Small things. I can't stand the thought of stitching on anything BIG.

So, I worked on Where My Heart Blooms, the house is about 1/2 done now and I am about 3/4 of the way finished. About this time in the progress, I usually just focus on that piece and finish it. It's like an obsession. But I haven't gotten to that place just yet. Soon, I bet! And I am working on the Plum Pudding freebie and I am working on October from Mary Garry. I've stitched that little witch before but gave her away.

I cleaned my house today. It's mostly clean. I stitched most of the afternoon, put out some of my Autumn decorations (I LOVE Fall!!!) I ordered new drapes for my living room (got 'em from JCPenney at 50% off which softened the blow when I told the DH how much they cost).

It's been a good day!

Have you been watching out for the new market releases? There are MANY that I want but I will practice restraint and do my very best not to purchase, um-mm, much. (I'd like to say I am only going to stitch my stash but I would be lying. I am trying to do that. I have so many cool patterns and I love them all!)

I love the new Carriage House Samplings! Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow and the tombstone are too cool. But I am drooling over the new Goode Huswife release, the Colonial Garden Series book. I will buy it and it will be my Christmas present to my self. Everything else that I love will go on a Wish List. Unless I lose my resolve, get stressed out, the planets align and I lose 10 pounds. At that point, there's no telling what I'll buy!

So what's on your Must Have list and your Wish List?

My Must Have is the new Joyeux noel book from blackbird designs and the new kelmscot scissors

I plan to get the Good Huswife Gardening Samplers book, With my Needle by Good Huswife and A Mind Independent and Free by CHS.

Gosh, I like so many of the new designs - Paradise Lost, A Mind Independent and Free, CHRH (although I'm going to wait a little until I finish one of the other three I have in progress), Ellen Chester's hornbook and Dames of the Needle hornbook - my husband better hide the charge card. Oh yeah, the Kelmscott scissors and needleminder. AUGHHH!

Too much too choose, right now - I haven't narrowed it down.

Glad you're starting to feel better! The last two nights, I went to bed with the chickens, too! Love that phrase.

Oh I wish I could go out with you to an LNS and shop all the new releases! At this rate with all the work stress, I could easily buy them ALL! ;-)

I love Paradise Lost! Then there's the new/reprint GH Book 3 and of course I'm looking forward to seeing with BBD will come up with!

Glad to hear things are settling down for you!
