I stitched!

Well, not much because it's hard to get back into it after a three-month hiatus, but I did get some done on Alice and the B's. I'd forgotten what a pain it is for a dominant leftie to stitch on the far right side of the panel! But anyway, I left off here back in August:

and made it here last night:

Not much done, but I'm still happy to be back doing what I love! This was the first Disney hiatus that my stitching mojo stayed strong through the entire break and I really wanted to be stitching instead of trip planning (maybe that should have been my first omen, but I'm determined not to dwell on the trip that was). Usually it takes me forever to get back into stitching after a break and then I stitch like mad for months, forcing myself to stop once again and work on Disney pictures around Feb/March.

I'm also having a strong desire to reorganize my stitch stuff. I never heard from Kate how her matchbox thread storage worked out and I'm really curious. I like how my thread is kept and how I have the patterns in ring binders, all nice and pretty, but I don't like the shelf thing I have them on. I need to find other storage solutions...I'm going to make it a point to start focusing on that until the end of the year. I'll put pictures up, maybe next week, of what I have now and hopefully you guys can help me with ideas! Geez, it's good to be home!

It's nice to have you back - and stitching too! I think you made good progress this weekend. I'll be interested to see how you store your stash. Mine is a bit here there and everywhere!

It's nice to see you stitching again, I started to have an overhaul of my stash this past week, but in the end I got distracted looking at the pretty things I forgot I had, haha.

Yay for stitching again and nice to see progress on Alice. I feel like I always want to start on the right and now I realize why since I'm right-handed. Nice update and hope you get as much time to stitch as you want.

I like how you say you don't get much done because it always looks like so much! It looks great :)
