Arghhh.....no time to stitch!

Can you believe that I have gone a whole week without finding time to do any stitching? Not a single stitch at all....unheard of! I'm beginning to suffer some serious withdrawal symptoms....my fingers are itching to pick up a needle......especially as I'm almost finished the lighthouse design. Hopefully this week I'll be able to carve out some time for myself and get even a few stitches done. 

Fingers crossed.

So although I didn't get any time to stitch, or crochet....or do any crafting at all....I did manage some stash enhancement (if you could only see me sitting here with a big grin on my face!)....funny how stash enhancement always makes you smile!

I went to the craft store as I had a $5 off coupon (even bigger smile on my face!) and decided to buy some yarn for my next crochet project....forward planning on my part as I haven't finished my current crochet project! I had gone in with the intention of buying greys and dusky pinks and came out with this colour scheme....


The colours are actually a lot darker in real life....I think all the snow reflecting the sunlight has made them look quite pale! 

I was quite pleased with my choices and even more so when I got to the check out and discovered that they were on sale....yayyyy! Don't you just love it when that happens?

Hopefully, next time I post I will have managed to get some stitching done (or crocheting)....and maybe even the lighthouse design finished!

Until then...happy stitching!

New stash is always great news but when it's at a bargain price, it's even better ;)

Oh I can believe it, There are weeks I don't stitch all week and am lucky to get in a few stitches on Sunday.

Hope you find time soon. Beautiful stash. Love the colors you picked. Sales and coupons always make a person feel good.

I understand You completely. I have the same problem :) So many wonderful patterns, a pile of WIP's and many many new projects that I would like to stitch but when? Days are just too short... Lovely stash!
