Good news/Bad news

The good news is I've got the itch to stitch. The bad news is I've got the itch to stitch.  : )

I guess it depends on how you look at things. There are dishes and clothes to wash, toilets to be scrubbed, and meals to plan, but this morning I'm spending a little time stitching. I go through moods where I will really feel like creating a mess in my craft room (I like to call that productivity) and then other days where I feel guilty about the other things in life that need taken care of and will put off stitching for weeks. One day I will figure out how to get it all done without feeling guilty about neglecting one or the other. Until then it's a roller coaster.

Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I'm creating a few 100% wool candle mats with hearts. This is the only time of the year I really get into hearts. Hopefully I will have something to show you in the next few days.

What are you working on today?

Happy stitching!

Michelle, thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. I'm looking outside and there are huge snowflakes coming down. Another storm, I think.

The itch to stitch can only be cured by stitching. You've got to do it when the urge strikes you. Do like I'm learning me and JUST DO IT, lol.

Yippee, Valentines, I'm thinking chocolates, I always take out my Valentine mugs around the first of February. I love that wool Valentine with the little black bird. Good luck with your stitching . JB

When you get it all figured out, Michelle, PLEASE let me know!
I can't do all I want/need to do in a day and all I want to do is stitch! LOL!
Hope you just enjoy yourself!
