Thoughts on my mind

It's been a very hard week for me for numerous reasons. I know I've been debating whether I have been wanting to talk about it here or not but in the end I'm needing to write this post and we'll see.

James had surgery on his shoulder on Wednesday and he's come out of it great but the stress on all of us beforehand took it's toll. I was very unsettled and have found it incredibly difficult to settle since then also James is home during the week instead of at work and he is BORED! That and he can't move or do things like he would like to as his right arm is essentially out of commission which is very frustrating for a man who spends most of his days outside and doing something.

That and it's only a week (less really) until the kids go back to school and they are BBBBOOOOORRRRREEEEEDDDDDDD!!!!!! Whined very long and loud. They have had enough of each other to the point that they are fighting and arguing just to have something to do as soon as they wake up! It's less than a week and I'm counting down!

But despite all the upset and changes I have managed to get a little bit of stitching in. Mainly today as that is when the kids went to vacation care and I got a chance to sit down for long enough with the head space to actually work on something.

See the pretty motif coming to life :D it looks so lovely and flowery and pretty :D It makes me so happy to see it emerging.

I've also been journalling a bit. I got some of my photos printed from Harvey Norman and I've been slowly organising them in the matching pockets. I will need to put some pretty papers in there but I have some hidden somewhere in my stash.

I'm going to have to find a better way to store all my stuff for this journal. At the moment it is sprawled across the table as I don't have a good way to organise or sort it. That is a task for another day.

So hope you managed to keep up with the rambling and enjoyed the couple of crafty photos.

Happy Stitching,


  1. So glad you were able to get some stitching time in and it made you happy. Keep marking those days off :)

  2. Hope the time flies for kids getting back to school and you can have some peace and quiet....I remember those days!!!! Great stitching and the sparkly fabric is gorgeous!

  3. Your stitching is beautiful, and I love that design.
    Sorry they are going batty from boredom. I hope the days go quickly for you!

  4. Your stitching is beautiful and I love the gorgeous fabric you picked. Things do get better, take a big breath and stitch.

  5. Nothing like slipping into a little bit of stitching to soothe the spirit :)
