Last night was crop night and it was a lovely little gathering. I got absolute diddly squat done!!! Well that is technically I lie as I did kind of do a LO, although I am not really that happy with it. My mojo has gone on a long break just lately, and I think it is because I am one of those scrappers who doesn't plan what to do in advance. I just sit, sort, faff, then do... and although it may take a long time to do a LO this way, it works for me. Now that I have children other than my own to look after, I can no longer get housework stuff done during the day, also I don't close my door until 6:00pm which means that the boys are fed and bathed later than usual, all this results in having less time in the evening to get creative. Add that to the fact that Harry is being a complete nightmare at night time, resulting in me getting about 4 hours sleep, I am just so tired... which we all know is not good for creativity.

The prompt for today is 'thread'. I have so many embroidery threads from various cross stitch projects over the years. A lot of them are in storage boxes, carefully wound on card bobbins and labelled with their numbers... this jumble however lives in my work space. My mum goes nuts when she sees it as she would have hers all neat and tidy... I have to say I like having a rummage in the tangled mess to find the colour you want.
