EMS SAL update

Not a great deal of progress but I have still been stitching a little. Although the mojo has not really returned and I do not feel any great enthusiasm at the moment, I cannot sit down and do nothing, it just is not in my nature lol. I have to be twiddling my fingers all the time as my DH puts it, and yes even in the days before i stitched I would always be knitting or crotcheting or some such thing in the evening. So this one which hardly takes any counting, very little in the way of colour changes is what i have at the side of my chair to pick up when I feel the need.

Although I admit to losing the enthusiasm for stitching I am ashamed to say my enthusiasm for stashing has not diminished in the least lol. I have joined a monthly club at Jaynes Attic for collecting Dinky-Dyes Silks and will be getting 10 new silks each month which I know I will just drool over.

Also after reading my last post, Dani remarked that if I hadn't said it was an Elizabeth Design she would have thought it was by Jeannette Douglas. I had never heard of Jeanette Douglas so I googled it and went to look. Oh dear that was fatal lol and I have added 4 more designs to my wish list - they are the seasons of stitching and they are delightful. There are quite a few others I like too but I really do need to stop wanting charts as I have so many beautiful ones already waiting to be stitched.

Thank you for all the lovely and encourageing comments, and for those like me who have mojo's playing truant I promise I will send them all home with a sharp word if I find where they are hiding.

I am trying very hard to keep up with everyones blogs and I do try to leave comments as often as I can so please forgive me if I miss you sometimes. I go for my premed on the 10th next month and if everything is ok i will be having my op on the 19th. Hopefully after that my health will improve and I will be back to my old self.


Bless you all you have come to mean so much to me.

I know you struggled with the colors when you started this and you've ended up with just the right ones. It looks great ;)

I love the muted colours you chose for this one, just lovely :)

I hope every thing goes well for your pr-op assessment and after the op, you feel on top form again.

Oooh now that I see it in pinks this mystery looks nicer. I've seen it in blues and it wasn't doing anything for me.

Thanks for the plug! I'm sure Jeannette apprecaites it too!

Oh the EMS piece is stunning Helen, it's such a lovely colour combination. Sorry the mojo is still a.w.o.l. - hope it comes back soon.

Your WIP is awesome. I just love the colors. I hope the stitching bug comes back to you. I was in a stitching slup for 2 years! Even gave all my stash away, and then the stitching bug got me. That was 3 years ago. Havent' stopped stitching since.
