I haven’t had much stitching mojo. I’ve mentioned it before, but now something else is aggravating the blahs. I got a new toy, and it’s sort of an obsession. I have missed stitching despite not getting anything done. I recently went to my LNS to browse and get inspiration. It worked a little bit. I started stitching, but I keep going back to my apps. I have been stashing a lot more than I should lately. Here’s a picture of a little bit of what I’ve accumulated. I have embarrassed myself by the total of what I’ve acquired. I shall remain on the Nile by refusing to show you everything. Besides, I can’t show you everything, b/c it hasn’t all arrived yet. Yeah, that’s it.
I’ll stitch all of these tomorrow, because I’m that amazing. Um. Yeah.
I have managed to make a bit of progress on Shores of Hawk Run Hollow:
That pink lovely in the corner is my Dell Mini. Pink, pink, pink, pink, pink! it makes me squeal (silently, fortunately for the masses). This block is a design that seems intimidating and overwhelming, and is simultaneously fun to work on. The intimidating part makes it easy to forgo for iPhone fun, alas.
I started a new project on Tuesday, because having too much to do never prevented any stitcher worth their salt from starting something new. I was itching to stitch something autumnal. This is what I chose from my existing stash, not my new stash:
Pumpkin Harvest kit, a store exclusive from my LNS, The Rocking Horse. They have quite a few adorable designs. Go check them out. It’s OK. I’m not going anywhere. I’ll wait.
I don’t have a progress picture. I haven’t made much progress as yet.
Before we went to San Diego for the summer, the boy made an Etsy purchase of an amigurumi werewolf doll from a seller in the Phillippines. It never got forwarded to us, but returned to her instead. She sent it back, and it arrived yesterday. His name is Huey, the boy adores him, and already the wolfeh has stolen something from me!
Huey is so cute!
When I told the boy that Huey may sit in my chair, but the wolfeh does not have license to move it, he reminded me that I “need” to make him a chair yet. Nag, nag, nag. Yeah, that’s going to happen next week. Not.
Time to get back to stitching. Or bed, considering the time. Maybe I’ll watch Project Runway again.
