Happier :)

A good sleep always puts the world to rights, doesn't it?! Thanks to all of you who dropped by and cheered me up with your comments yesterday :)

Last night I felt renewed vigour for Northern Lights, so I finished the 'reindeer lichen' band (the bottom-most completed band), and then started on the next one. I can't remember what it's meant to represent, but it's a row of lovely rectangular satin stitched boxes, and it's in a beautiful Thead Gatherer Silk 'n' Colours thread called 'Granite' which is all rich dark purples, blues, greens and golds, so I'm looking forward to carrying on with this one. I think that I've identified my restlessness with this project: any time I have to use Wisper, or else stitch an animal, I get bored and frustrated. So it's good that I'm in an 'in-between' bit with no animals or Wisper for at least 2 or 3 more rows!

Happy stitching to all out there - thank you again for all your kind thoughts!

Northern Lights is looking very nice. I love stitching band samplers like this, not too much of any one thing to get truly bored or frustrated.
