Can a blogging bug run away?

Well it would seem that mine has.  I have things to share and show and everyday I say I must sit down and do a post and then everyday I don't.  I don't know why I just have not felt like it.

Firstly thank you to everyone who helped with my voting.  It was a close call and there were firm favourites.  But the definite winner is The Witching Hour.  I am surprised that Bound By Love got not even one vote... must be me that has very weird taste then:-)

I also go news that I had won a gift on Jo's Blog: A Stitch In Time by commenting on her one post.  It arrived in the mail and here is the beautiful gift she sent me:

And heres the fabric she chose for the back:

Than you Jo for such a beautiful gift.  It is proudly displayed in my basket of smalls.

I have not been following any rotation the last while and just basically stitched what I wanted to.

I worked on Jewel On The Water and I must say I absolutely love, love, love this design.  I don't have kreinik threads so I made do with dmc metallics that I had in my stash.

I'm not 100% sure bout my colours on the body of the dragonfly but I absolutely love the way the wings are turning out.

I then moved onto some more Christmas Decorations and completed the one that I had already finished stitching, but I still needed to add the gold metallic and then finish it into a decoration:

And then I started and finished two more:

I then went back to Jewel On The Water:

Goodness I seem to have really outdone myself this time with the very horrible pictures.  One would think after so many years, that I would actually learn to take them well.

Today I picked up 99 Bottles and am hoping to finish the row of bottles that I am on.

What a lovely gift from Jo :) I love your dragonfly body...that blue is very eye catching! Don't stress about the blogging shouldn't feel like a chore so when you feel like it you drop a note :)

What a great prize! Your jewel on the water is looking lovely. Love the colors in this one. As to blogging, sometimes life just slows it down a bit. It isn't work and shouldn't feel like it, just enjoy yourself when you do post.

Lovely gift form Jo :)
I know how you feel re posting... Sometimes the urge seems to slip away with the hours of the day... I think they are together somewhere that we can't find them!!!
Great stitching. Love your dragonfly :)
