I hate a post with no pictures so here are the puppies together. The new puppy, Bear, sleeps contentedly with the old girl, Nala. I think it is a relief for Nala when the puppy runs out of steam and falls asleep. Bear's favourite game has become grabbing a big mouthful of Nala's fur and playing tug of war. She has a bit in her mouth in this picture - at the rate she is going she will get hairballs!
Subject for today is a question - what do you do when you hit a dry spell - when your muse flies the coop and you just don't feel like picking up a needle and thread? One day leads to the next and before you know it a week or two have gone by and you haven't taken a stitch. That is where I am right now. Initially I had reasons: the wedding, company here, busy at work, etc. Now I have excuses but no good reasons. I have just fallen into a slump. I can't seem to bring myself to take the first stitch and do my fifteen minutes a day minimum that I know will get things flowing again. So, does this happen to you? What do you do when it does? I would sure like any help you can give me or advice that will get me back on track!
I have tried surfing the net and getting inspired by all the eye candy on the blogs and I have seen lots of things I would like to try.... sometime.... but apparently not now. I think today I will try an old cure on myself. I am bundling up a ball of yarn and needles and will try to knit a dishcloth today in the spare moments of my day. Somehow making something I don't have to think about seems to help as well as having a finished project of any kind done. I am hoping it will break the spell and get me moving again.
I can't remember ever having so many off topic posts here before - thanks for your patience and hopefully I'll have something stitched to share soon, even if it is a dishcloth!
