After ummm….about 4.5 months with no desire at all to embroider I finally picked up the needle with enthusiasm. Around the time we moved here Ibecame burnt out, it began to feel like punishment to stitch. I did it all the time and I guess I overdosed on it. Last month I ran an embroidery swap on Swap-bot at someones request but my heart wasn’t in it. I started to get more than a little down about my lack of interest in my favourite hobby. But I joined another swap on Swap-bot anyway, just to test the waters. Well I meant to pull out because of the craft fair chaos I am surrounded in but I forgot. So I put it all to one side, picked a couple of Spring related designs and sat down with my beloved Q-snap to stich.
And I enjoyed it. And I enjoyed the act of enjoying it. I was so relieved that my mojo was starting to return. I loved watching the picture get filled in on the fabric. I think the word moderation will apply from now on, a little at a time if that’s what it takes to maintain my interest. It just feels so good to be enjoying what I really love once more.
