What Happened?

Once again, life has kept me from posting on my blog as often as I would like. When did everything get so hectic around here? I want my dull, take it one day at a time life back! Hopefully this is just a phase!

I picked up several new additions for my rooster/hen collection that I found on sale. I have no idea how or why I got hooked on these feathered fouls. Maybe I got one as a gift years ago and it grew from there or possibly I saw one I liked and bought it to fill a space but it all started somewhere. I don't buy them often and I don't have many but I am always on the look out for a special one or a good sale price!

I have been on a stitching break for awhile. First, it was because my wrists were bothering me. Then DH took some vacation time and we worked on catching up on life in general. After he went back to work, I kept telling myself to start stitching but it just never happened for one reason or another. I did use the time to straighten up my stash and threads though. I even kitted up a few more patterns and made a list of threads I have run out of so I can pick them up on my next trip out.

I mentioned several posts ago that I had ordered a couple of other patterns that I had been wanting. They arrived and with all my new stash to tempt me, I want to start them all! Wouldn't that be chaos! I know that Mother's Garden by BBD is in the top running. I just love it. I have an idea in mind for the initials that is a little different than what Barb used but it will work for me! After I get a start on it I will let you in on my idea! For now, I am going to start on a new freebie by The Primitive Hare to get my mojo up and running again.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart.

Life can definitely get in the way of stitching. Hope you can stitch again soon. I love the new stash! So yummy! Love the roosters too!

I hope things calm down for you and you get some time to stitch. Love the new additions to your collection! Much to my husbands dismay, I have been known to collect a few rooster/chickens. :) Your new charts look pretty. :)
