Stitching Blahs

Stitching the Night Away Stitching Bloggers Blog Hop

I saw this on another blog and decided to participate.  It's a blog hop where everyone blogs on the same topic. This first time it's the stitching blahs.

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?

The last time I had the stitching blahs was when I had my dad living with us.  I spent so much time taking care of his needs that stitching went by the wayside.   I have no regrets taking care of him but it wasn't easy.  After he passed on, I really didn't stitch for about 2 years.  What got me back into stitching was blogging.  I figured if I was going to blog about something, I'd better be doing it.  I started out slowly and then worked up to where I was stitching every day.  I'm still not finishing as much as I was before he lived in with us but I'm stitching what I like And having fun.  And please forgive the change in the font here.  I just had eye surgery yesterday and having a little bit of difficulty seeing the keyboard.

Be sure and check out all of these wonderful blogs which answer the question of what do you do when the   stitching blahs hit.

I didn't know you started back to stitching because you were blogging about it. :)

I don't stitch every day, but I do get some in every week.

Just found your blog through Stitching The Night Away.

Glad you are stitching again, even if not as much as before. I think blogging does encoirage stitching because we need to stitch so that we have something to blog about!
I only have the blahs if I have to keep unpicking!

I love that blogging and stitching went together like that :) It's one of the things that helps me keep my stitching mojo too!

Hopping over from the STNA's blog hop! Love your Quaker gone Tropical.

I tend to blog less than I stitch, so the opposite is true for me. I blog because I stitch..

I made my way over via STNA's blog hop.
Glad that you are stitching again.
