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!


  1. Good Luck Kelly!! I look forward to seeing your progress on this. Hopefully I will get some stitching in soon also. I have started a Halloween picture and yet I have only stitched on it once in the last 2 weeks.

  2. Hi Nancy, I just absolutely adore Halloween. Maybe I should do nothing but Halloween stitching for the next two months!

  3. This is a great piece to stitch. I know what you mean as my mojo just came back this month. Hang in there.

  4. Thank you Jan, sorry you lost yours too.

  5. Great choice for a project Kelly!...and you just happened to have floss, pattern and fabric!!

    I loook forward to seeing your progress.

  6. Crossing fingers that this one will do the trick for you. It's a lovely design

  7. I'm beginning to like the Halloween stuff too! I just finished Witches Wheel and it's framed and ready to hang this October. I'm #B with stitching. You kit it up and I will stitch it in a heartbeat, but if I have to dig up the material and threads??? Ugh, I hate that part! I like this fairy! I did the Trick or Treat one that came in a magazine.

  8. She is pretty, hope she gets you out of you stitching funk.

    Glad to see that you are stitching again, I am not stitching either just cannot seem to get into the mood yet.


  10. I hope you get your mojo back esp as celtic summer looks as if its going to be gorgeous when its done.

  11. Kelly,
    I hope Mojo came back with this piece. I've been know to lose my Mojo now and then too, lately, I often sit staring in front of my WIP instead of stitching it, but once I do get started, I'm having fun. It's just that getting started that is difficult.
    And yes, those prices for thread are outrages :(

  12. Can't wait to see progress pics of Halloween Fairy

  13. I love that pattern, but I haven't bought it because I didn't want the kit.

    I'm sure yours will be beautiful!
