Trying to Regain my Stitching Mojo

My stitching Mojo hardly exists although I really want to stitch. I get very frustrated when this happens.

I really do want to stitch but two things happen when I try:
A/ I pick some stitching up and just end up staring at it.
B/ I want to start something new but do not have the 'urge' to sort something out to stitch.

So, I went through my stash and forgot I had this kit by Mirabilia, 'Halloween Fairy'. It is not a very large piece so should give me some incentive. I thought it would look better on a lighter fabric than the linen it came with so picked out a piece of Polstitches Fabric I had laying around.

All being well, I am hoping that I can get stuck into it tonight.
Wish me luck!

Lost My Stitching Mojo

The last couple of months, I have completely lost my stitching mojo. Where the hell it has gone I just don't know. I seem to stitch for a couple of months and then nothing for a while. I would dearly love to stitch again, but have not a clue what to do. I would need to stitch something small to get me into it, but what? Suggestions always welcome.

Here is where I left off on Celtic Summer:

And here is a close up of the area I was working on:

What I can say is that I miss Rene dreadfully and I know she would want me to carry on stitching :-)

Other news: I am awaiting another Colonoscopy and a CT scan where my stomach problems are concerned. The consultant is worried as I have lost 24lbs without dieting and in such a short time span. I have been put on a strict diet but am still eating chocolate as I just can't give that up lol.

Drumming is going great. My twin boys have joined Section 5 now. Last weekend we drummed at Bodiam Castle Medieval Fair and were lucky enough to drum on top of a turret complete with medieval clothes. It was awesome to say the least!

Getting ready to drum by the castle.

Nice shot of the castle! (I'm the one in the cloak with the flower garland on my head lol)

Getting ready to drum on the turret! It could be heard for miles.

Colin and I in 'normal' section 5 garb..........I ditched the face paint for this event at Crowhurst and went for a wig instead lol.

I know some of you are interested in Castles here in the UK, so here is a link to Bodiam Castle:

It is situated 12 miles from where I live.
