My Mojo Is Definitely Back

Yep I am definitely in full swing with my stitching at the moment and catching up on my lost time fairly quickly. Apart from a very quick visit by Mr Frog earlier today, so glad he didnt stay very long, part 3 of the Papillon SAL went well and Im really pleased with it, though it does seem to be taking on rather a blue hue. I havent stitched the daisys in the centre as the bead is attached as you stitch and I havent decided on a bead colour yet, I just know it wont be blue lol.

I have also made a start to night on my UFO SAL and will be stitching on that for a day or two to make up for the time I missed whilst the mojo went on its holiday. No photo as I have not done much and I am going to try and just concentrate on the very boring ivy border. Chiloe will know exactly what I mean when I say "its green" lol.

Thank you for the lovely comments regarding Queen of the Needle and also on the March Challenge. I am not going to take part in the challenge this month. I should really as I voted (though luckily the design chosen was not the one I voted for or I would feel really guilty), but Oscar will be finishing school for two weeks on Friday and will be spending quite a bit of time staying with us, and then with hospital coming up (fingers crossed) I feel that I will be rushing and dont want that mojo getting all upset and walking out again lol.
