I Need It Back

It's been forever since I blogged so I want to wish you all a belated Happy New Year.
I had eye surgery for my glaucoma early in December and wasn't allowed to stitch or read for ten days. It almost drove me crazy. Then when I got the okay to stitch my eye was so blurry because of the drops I had to use I could only see large count projects. I pulled out a couple of Pine Mountain kits but they didn't hold my interest.
Now my eyes are back to normal but my stitching mojo has gone.I REALLY NEED IT BACK I did manage to finish Tree of Life Samplings Quaker Silence.

In December I was spoiled and received the cutest ornaments. One was from Kathy in a swap.

The other was from my friend Jan.

Aren't they both the cutest things? I love them.

Right now I'm trying to work on Blue Ribbon's Proud and True and Jardin Prive's My Quaker Lady. I really need to get started on my January ornie. That works so well to stitch one a month, because I make them for all 7 grandkids and some friends.

We had a wonderful holiday and I managed to get a couple of decent pictures of my two daughters and their families.

Wishing you all Happy Stitching and hoping my stitching mojo returns.

Glad the eye surgery went ok, i'm sure your stitching mojo will return soon. Your finished peice looks great as are the ornies :-)

Great photos of your family, i wish i liked having my photo taken so i could record things like that.

Wonderful family photos, Kathy! Love your Quaker Silence and your ornaments that you received are lovely!

I'm happy that your surgery was successful and you are doing well enough to stitch again.

Love that finish. And you got some lovely ornaments.

The photos of your family are fabulous. The children may not agree but years from now they will love looking at the old photos. :)

I'm so glad that your eye surgery went well, Kathy! Love the finish, and the ornaments!

Thanks for sharing the photos of your daughters and their families. They look like a wonderful bunch of people. :)

I hope your mojo returns! I know how frustrating that is.
