Where, Oh Where Has My...

Mojo gone? Have you seen it?

Talked to Mary Jane the other day and I decided her mojo must have come to Ohio and picked up my mojo and headed to the beach. I'm a bit miffed our mojos left us at home and didn't take us with them!

If you see my mojo could you send it back to me? I have a L*K quickie that should have taken 2 days tops still sitting half done in my stitching room.

In all honesty though, I know what's happened to me. I'm tired of Santa and Christmas related stitches and I started working on the genealogy again. Daily. Some one warned me genealogy could take over all my free time and I sort of blew them off. Opps, they were right.

See, I like to collect things. Linen, floss, patterns, Willow Tree people, used to collect Boyds Bears snow globes, all the roses ever given to me, mallets from my ancestors, wooden bowls, sand timers. Yeah, you get the picture...well, genealogy is sort of like collecting family members. And it involves data mining, organization, some mystery --- you know all those neat things I like.

If you notice I haven't posted in say 2 weeks - send me an email and make me come up for air. Otherwise, I'll be on Ancestry and My Heritage constantly.

See you soon,
Denise

Get yourself over here girls! You can help me finish some of my stitches! I'll share some chocolate, tea or coffee, and mojo!

Yes, Denise, the genealogy bug happened to me two years ago. I got distracted from it for a bit, and actually decided to let it sit in it's messy, unfinished piles. It just takes up sooo much time!! I do want to get back to it, but frankly I am afraid of the lost time due to it!

Okay Denise. If I can start a zillion pieces, you CAN work on yours. Do one strand or one hour a day and you will get the stitchy back. Come on, ya gotta stitch with me.

You KNOW I am a genealogy buff, in hiding! Recently I tried a little searching, but nothing resolved of it... so bye-bye! I really need to scan all that paper onto a memory stick or six! Then I can just hand them over to the next sucker! hehehehe...

I wonder if my mojo is hanging out with yours? I have seen very little stitching in my house this month too!

I have done some family research and it can be time consuming. It's on my back shelf....
