Every night after the kids are in bed I do the same thing.

I am here.

I was thinking today about how frustrated I am feeling lately and that I have this feeling of my life spinning out of control and I can not stop it.

I then tried to think of ways to s..l...o..w it down.

I feel that I have no ME time. No time for me to just sit and do something for myself. I used to think that me being online every night was my "me" time.
But its not it?

I have so many hobbies that I absolutely love..but haven't had the time to do.
I have so many incomplete projects that irritate me everytime I look at them, lol.They are now hiding in the dark recesses of my top cupboard.

So..I took my Cross Stitch bag down. I used to get a kick out of fondling all my threads and patterns..that kick was replaced by the "tap tap" of the keyboard under my fingers.
I used to trawl Ebay looking for those elusive OOP (out of print) patterns. Paula Vaughn was my favourite artist. I have 3 of her books that are some of my prized possessions.

I rediscovered my love for Cross Stitch tonight. About 3 years ago I started this picture that I wanted to do for Lemon's room. I am going to finish it for her birthday - hopefully sooner and I can't wait to pick up where I left off!

I also started a Wedding sample by Lavender and Lace - I started this just after I got married, and we have been married 5 years this April and I haven't done more then a dozen stitches.

I look forward to sharing my progress with you!

I can't wait to see you accomplish your tasks. I know the feeling. So much of my old hobbies sit there gathering dust...and I do miss them.
I'm glad you found the joy again! Have fun!

oh and your comment today on my blog....really made me day! THANK YOU. It means a lot to me.
