A couple of days before Christmas our weather turned decidedly wintry, so much so I put the fire on in the lounge room and cozied into the Princess Chair (this pic is just a reminder of the Princess Chair – it was taken in August in Actual Winter, when the sun was shining), while the rain poured down, the skies stayed grey and the temperature remained “cold”. So weird in the middle of Summer!
As I huddled there, I was reminded of the depths of Lockdown and how I spent lots of time in this very chair sewing………..and my fingers started to itch.
What was this I spied from the corner of my eye? Could this be…..? Was it really…..? Not daring to question it out loud, I nonchalantly pretended to turn the other way then quickly pounced on my sewing mojo, wrestling it into submission and before I knew it, those last little bits of applique on my “Vermont Summer Medallion” were completed
(you can see how dark/overcast it was by the photo!)
Before my mojo had time to flee again, I made and stitched on the elongated hexies
and even prepped the bits to finish the month’s quota, but sadly that’s as far as it went for this project (and the next month is now here – eek!) as something else needed to be done – stay tuned for that.
As part of the encouragement process for my mojo’s return, I worked on a little embroidery doing this
I’m not pushing it……just taking each day as it comes. My mojo is still a little flighty but gradually staying more than going.
