Stitchy Goodness!

There have been far too many non-stitchy posts lately haven't there?

Guess what?  I think I've found my mojo!!!!!  Wool Hoop!  I had a 3-day weekend and I stitched and stitched and stitched!!!!  I accomplished so much!  I finished TWO yes TWO ornaments, started a 3rd (wee start not worth showing).  I just can't get these to photograph properly no matter what I try!

I've made progress on The Accolade


And I've made huge progress (like leaps and bounds ladies and gentlemen!) on Ink Circles Spring Mandala!!!

Fob from Lillie

 From Tracey to keep the frogs away!

I've got two gorgeous scissor fobs to share with you as well, the first one which is black and white was in the exchange from Lillie, I forgot to share it with you.  The second is a Swaroski crystal frog that Tracey picked up for me during her trip to California.  I love both of them and I just happened to have just the right pair of scissors to go with each of them!

In the last week I've felt like my life is finally settling back into place, that all of the pieces that have been missing have been found and are finally fitting together.  My mojo coming back is a sure sign of that and I've taken a few more positive steps which can only make me feel better about myself.
