...i just can't seem to find my stitching mojo!

But found this pinkeep on my photo's from last december which i haven't shared it yet.

Christmas Greetings pinkeep

Did tried to pick up a project and unfortunately don't have the needed-just one -thread to continue, it is the LHN "Home of a Needleworker" so i put it back into the box. Pick up one of the PS ornament designs but after 15 minutes...kind of bored and put it away again. Ussually, i can stitch for 2-3 hours in the evening.
I think too much going on here, hubby being away for six weeks, the mortgage we've been working for the renovation haven't yet finalize which is now more than six months and renovations were completed. The bank kept on sending new papers to follow up instead of giving it the very first time!! We were really, really disappointed with all these regarding this bank! Plus, my youngest who is 11 has been in a couple of problems at school and outside school activities. Honestly, just not in the mood for anything, even reading which i do love too before going to bed. I am on facebook sometimes when i get the chance to chat with my family back home and in other countries. Since we got back here, we only have one computer instead of four so we have to share these days and the kids are on Spring break now for a week.

Thanks everyone for stopping by and hope you are all having a good weekend.

Hoi Mylene, wat een narigheid allemaal, ik hoop dat alles snel weer goed komt en dat je je "draai" weer vindt om te gaan borduren.

Groetjes

Take a deep breath, Mylene, it will get better!

Annie said...

The pinkeep is a real cutie!

Sometimes there are things to take care of that are more important than stitching (hard to believe, but it's true!). Hope things settle down for you soon so your life can get back on more of an even keel.

Sue said...

I love the pinkeep Mylene! I am sorry to hear that your stitching mojo is not good; I did put a new database on ESC for a Spring Exchange! (stitched)

Hope your other difficulties are resolved real soon! xoxox

Ellen said...

Hugs to you and take care!

It must be really hard with your DH away at work. Just take a break from stitching & you'll get your mojo back soon enough.

I'm surprised it's taken this long for you to lose your mojo. You've had SO much going on - it's just amazing all that you do and are involved in. Be kind to yourself!

Hazel said...

Oh my Mylene! You are in need of a big cyber ((((((hug)))))). So much going on. No wonder you have lost your stitchy mojo. Just take it easy. It will come back when things have settled down. xx

Ranae said...

A lovely pinkeep.
Sorry for all the problems.
I know I can't stitch if things are going awry around here.
I am sure it will come back with a vengence, lol
Take Care!

Mylene, sounds like you have an awful lot going on right now. Hope you get your stitching mojo back soon -- and I love the pinkeep!!!

CalamityJr said...

So sorry you aren't feeling "yourself". You're an inspiration to me, so I'm selfishly hoping you'll feel wonderful soon!

mbroider said...

The pinkeep design is so cute and colorful!! Great stitching

Hope things in your family settle down soon. Looks like that is not letting you concentrate on your stitching.

Take care

Hello Mylene,

Hope the sun starts shining for you soon. You are probably a bit down after having such a great holiday with your family. My suggestion go and buy some chocolate!!! Then go to your Zumba class.

Happy days.

Hoi Mylene, wat vervelend allemaal. Ik hoop dat je problemen gauw worden opgelost en dat je je gauw weer beter voelt. "Na regen komt zonneschijn"

Je pinkeep is prachtig!

Shari said...

Cheer up Mylene......today will be a brighter day....I think each & everyone of us can say we have had a time period in our lives that we have felt like this....sure know I have...more than I care to think about.....hugs to you!!!

Debra said...

hope things get better soon.

Carol said...

Hopefully this will be a brighter week for you, Mylene. I've gone through periods like this myself and you just have to tell yourself "It's just a stage." Sending you a big hug and I hope your desire to stitch returns soon to offer you some much-needed stress relief :)

Sally said...

The pinkeep is really sweet.

I do hope you are feeling brighter soon and things get better for you.

Terry said...

Sorry to hear about the Bank being so stupid. No other words to describe them that I can type on here. lol Hope this settles down for you quickly.

Things will get better. Just tough that it hits you all at once and your DH is out of town when it does. Keep your chin up! You'll get the sitching mojo back....I'm living proof that it does happen. lol I've been stitching a little each night and it feels wonderful.

Have a better week and enjoy the kids spring break!

Joy said...

Banks are such a pain. I think they feel that if they give your the run around enough, you will give up...such a mean tactic on their behalf. Hon, when things settle, your needle will fly again. Grab a cup of tea, sit back, close your eyes, and relax.

Mare said...

I know how you feel! Sometimes it all gets to be too much. I hope things work out soon and in the mean time I will keep you in my prayers.

Hugs,
Mare

Conny said...

Lovely pinkeep, Mylene.
Sometimes things don't go like we want, don't worry too much. For sure your stitchingmojo will be back soon. Take care!

Julianne said...

Mylene,

Sorry to hear about all the stress you are having. I can understand why you have lost the desire to stitch. I just can't relax enough to stitch when I am feeling anxious.

I hope things improve very soon.

Sending hugs :)

Meari said...

Hopefully your stitching mojo will return soon. Love the Christmas design you did.

Linda M said...

Cute stitching, and hope your mojo comes back.

Anonymous said...

Hi Mylene,

I hope that things will change soon to better for you and your family.

I learned in a very stressful time that stitching helped me to recover and to be fitter for the work .
So I hope that your wonderful stitching will help you in that bad times.
All the best Judith (ILCS)

Kate said...

Cute pinkeep. I hope things are looking up for you soon. I think most of us have lost our stitching mojo at one time or another. Take a break then you'll be keen to start again.

craftygal43 said...

Mylene, your work is soo nice. I want to thank you personally for the monogram scissor fob. I love it! I attached it right away to my scissors. It is sooo pretty. The fact that you took the time to make something special for me, someone you dont even know, didnt even have to do... and you did it. Wow!

Vinniey said...

I'm so sorry to hear about the problems. {{{Hugs}}} I hope things will get resolve soon and you find your mojo again. Beautiful pinkeep, Mylene.

Despina said...

I have been feeling hte same way this year, it has been since last year that I haven't felt the need to pick up the needle and make a stich... Hope you and I both get our stitching bug back :)

Kay said...

Mylene, it does sound like you have a lot on your plate. I hope things turn around soon. It is hard to find your stitching mojo when so much is going on, I have been there a lot myself as well. Hugs.

Justflo said...

You sound like I felt a few months ago. But I just kept plodding along and hoping for a better day. Finally it arrived and once again I felt as though I could look the world in the eye and smile. You'll find your Mojo hidden in your pocket! Just waiting to pop out and help. Hope all's better for you soon.
