Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop


Loretta over at Stitching The Night Away has decided to start a Blog Hop and I think it sounds like fun so I decided to participate; Thanks Loretta! 

So here is the FIRST Blog Hop Question:
Have you ever had a case of the “stitching blahs” where you just didn’t want to stitch? Or maybe it was more like you didn’t get to stitch because you were busy and that created a chain reaction sense of the “blahs” and led to even less stitching…. sort of like a case of “the Mondays” that we are all familiar with. How do you handle your stitching blahs and get back into stitching mode?
                 
Are you kidding?  Stitching blahs…?  I had a case so bad that I did not stitch for four years!  YES – FOUR YEARS!

It all started with a combination of a couple of things.  The first was we bought a new house and it just did not have a “space” that I felt comfortable stitching in!  I would sit here and there or in another space and just couldn’t find my comfy spot.  Next my grandson was born and while I think he is a true blessing I just couldn’t leave my stitching stuff out because you know how kids are; anything they shouldn’t touch is exactly what they want.  Needles, fabric, floss, scissors and anything else! I was scared he might put a needle in his mouth or who knows what else might happen so who in the world wants to drag everything out and then pack everything back up each and every time?  Certainly not me as it definitely cuts into the joy and relaxation of stitching.

Anyways ~ I can happily report now though that I am over the blahs!  I have now found my stitching space and Jacob doesn’t bother my things (to much anyway) and I am now happily Stitching The Night Away on all that stash I bought during my stitching hiatus.

Thanks for stopping by and I do hope you will participate in the Blog Hop.

I am glad you found your stitching place. Sometimes it takes a while to find the perfect spot. Glad Jacob is big enough to leave your stuff alone now too!

Congrats on getting rid off blahs!

I can relate to lengthy bouts of the stitching blahs, and not having the "right space" was a trigger for me as well.

I think I could stitch almost anywhere, lol. Glad you have your space now and are stitching up a storm :)

Hi Faith

I'm participating in this too.
I know what you mean about having to put everything away and getting it out again. It's a bit of a pain but necessary with small children around.
Glad to hear you are happily stitching again!

I'm so glad you found your stitching place after your own case of the stitching blahs! I hope I can find mine too :)

And I thought my stitching blah was long!
Glad you are stitching again.
