Last week, I dug out a few cross stitch designs I've been wanting to start... because of course I have nothing else that needs to be finished or progressed... & I needed to do something about the mental slump I've been in...
Not having such easy access to my sewing machine these days, means I need to have a few hand-work projects to keep me
sane happy... I needed to stock up on supplies before I could get started.
Stopped at two shops & this is the end result:
While keeping an eye on the football, I sorted the threads into their various projects:
41 skeins divided into 5 sets... yep, 5 new projects coming up! Well, actually 6, but I already had the thread I needed.
Told you I went NUTS! But I didn't stuff anything in my cheeks to carry it home...
Here's a start
This happy boost is working for me... what gives you a happy boost??
I don't always take Miss Pfaff to Patch group, but I think I'm going to have to do it, given that I don't want to bore my readers with endless cross stitch pics!
Mr15's soccer season is over now, so I have my Friday evenings back again... I'm looking forward to resuming some FNSI & FNWF action...
Plus, I've joined a new blog, care of Kaye at Kitten Stitching...
The idea is to dig out an old WIP or UFO & spend an evening working on it, so it doesn't remain a WIP or UFO forever... just what I need to get me back to some neglected projects.

Spring is well & truly in the air here... I'm eagerly throwing open as many doors & windows as I can... I've never waited so keenly for sunshine & breeze!
