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.
