Oh dear, I'm having a real crisis.  My mojo has deserted me and I just can't get motivated.  However today I had a little burst of creativity as it's one of our dear friend's birthday on Thursday and I HAD to do something.  This design came very easily, which is worrying, after so many barren weeks.  Maybe mojo has decided to make an appearance again - on a staged return!!!

Although I haven't been making cards, I have been crafting.  The knitting pins have been working overtime knitting little cardigans and jumpers for Christmas presents.  It's been nice having the pins in my hands again and there are so many lovely yarns and colours to choose from.

On Friday my friend and I are off to the SECC in Glasgow to the Hobbycraft Fair so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that once I see all the lovely crafty stuff my mojo will return permanently.  I'm putting some pennies in my purse just in case anything jumps out and grabs me.  We are staying overnight at my son's flat in Glasgow and hitting the shops on Saturday.  I'm hoping to get my Christmas shopping finished as I don't have much left to buy - woopee. 

Hope to be back very soon.  Hugs x
