Sew-Jo, Mo-Jo... Wherefore Art Thou?!

 Not a great title for a blog post, but sadly it's the truth!
So many other things have been taking my time, with not much left for stitching or sewing... but, that's life & there's been some good stuff happening during my absence from blogland.
I've at least managed a bit of hexy stitching some evenings... but most evenings, it's just not happening... perhaps I'm a bit hexy fatigued, & a slow patch will do me good!

 I've been a very lucky recipient of some fab mail recently... Kim, at Wisdom With Needle & Thread is doing "60 RAKs"... and wow, check out what she's sent me:
 DMC threads... a pretty fq... a cross stitch chart... & the prettiest hand-painted trinket box... just look at the detail, amazing... thank you so much Kim, I love it all & I'm so grateful for your generosity in doing these RAKs!


Mr 16's soccer season is finished... so I get my Friday nights back, yay... I wonder how many oranges I've cut & taken to every game for them?! My darling girls are both working hard on their uni stuff, so much work in 4th year; clearly they get their drive from mrHS, the only thing I did well with at school was English & socialising!

Isn't it wonderful that Spring is in the air? It's officially been a colder-than-usual winter here, so it's great to see new growth in the gardens & be able to open the doors and windows to daytime breezes.
What do you love about Spring?

Thanks for popping by, have a great day.

I think it's a great title! Oh My Gosh - what a wonderful RAK from Kim. Don't you just love the transitional seasons? We've had an unusually hot summer this year, and I can't wait for cooler temperatures to arrive. Hope Mr. MoJo returns soon.

It sounds like you are busy so no wonder there's little sewing going on; hopefully maybe things will slow down and the mo-jo will return. Your RAK gift is wonderful, how kind of her.

Your hexies are looking great - I'm so happy you liked your gifts. They were fun to put together for you.

mojo will come back when it's good and ready... sometimes we just need to give creativity a rest while we deal with other things....

Kim said...

Your hexies look great! That is an awesome gift. We're heading into Fall here and I'm not ready for it.

Susan said...

Beautiful RAK gift! Love your hexies too. That's the good thing about stitching, it waits for your mojo to return xx

I am loving these beautiful warmer days...

Love those bright hexies and your super RAK from Kim. It's turning autumn here in the UK which is a relief after the hot days of summer.

Brigitte said...

What a wonderful RAK you received from Kim. She is such a generous lady.
A nice amount of hexies indeed - although your mojo wasn't as strong as usual.
I love spring and autumn just alike because the weather is usually mild and not too hot and not too cold. Just perfect.

Maria said...

Nic RAK from Kim....I'm sure your mojo will return . We all seam to lose it at times....
Sure has been cold and even though we've had lovely sunny days it's still cold at night....
