Inspiration or Lack Thereof

While I am lacking inspiration, I like to peruse patterns and shop. Generally I buy a magazine or two, or do a bunch of blog reading, but I am feeling tired and I can't even bring myself to do my procrastinating activities!

Time to force myself to get upbeat! I am going to run on the spot. Do three push ups - as that's all I can do right now - and I am going to sing a bad 80s song at the top of my lungs. (Insert your favorite top 80s song here).

OK OK OK now that I have the blood flowing and the motivation, I am going to share some blogs that I have been checking out lately:

Well now that I am inspired, on to working on my custom Handkerchief of a Hydrangea...

Hello! Just returning the following here.

You might want to move your Follow button a little higher up the page, I had to look twice to find it!!!

Looking forward to more stitching pics once you get inspired from the blogs you've linked to.
