Here I sit, bored to ......whatever.  My stitching mojo has left me. Or maybe it's just taking a nap. I've been stitching a little on my LHN ornies and today I cleaned out my fabby stash closet. Lots of projects here. Just none of them are striking my fancy.

Since my LNS has closed, I've ordered a couple of things from 123 Stitchery. I love how fast everything is mailed back out. I have ordered some xstitch fabby and it was great, but I have a couple of things sitting on the back burner, so I need to pay a visit to my shop in Houston. Guess I just need to put my hot little hands on fabric that I can see.

One of the charts I ordered is this one by My Big Toe. "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" is my favorite hymn, so this one hit the spot. When I manage the trip to Houston, I'll choose the fabby and pick up the threads I don't  already have. I don't really like the one stitched in the single thread, so I'm going for an antique white fabric and the GA threads called for.
It's Mardi Gras season here-one of my favorite things! Spanish Town is the big parade here, but it's later in the month. We all went last year, but had to give it up because of rain. Got soaked. And I found out that my baby granddaughter doesn't like getting wet from rain. Poor Michael had to carry her to the car with her crying all the way. My kids come over, and John and Laura are on one of the floats. And.......I'm hoping my son and his girlfriend will want to travel to New Orleans for Orpheus. It's on Lundi Gras, which is the Monday befor Mardi Gras on Tuesday.

So here it is. Damn. I hate these little moments. At least I have my Kindle. Guess I'll grab it and go soak in the tub!!

Marian, you must start stitching for the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. All the tapestry and cross stitch designs are coming out now. If they are not in your shops they can be bought over the net, I'm sure there will be something to inspire.

Hope your little stitch bug returns soon.
