My Stitching Mojo is MIA

I don't know what has happened to my stitching mojo. I thought it was taking a vacation of sorts, but, now I think it is just completely MIA. It has been this way for a while. A long while. Oh, when will it come back?!!!

I started this ornament in December for my son, finished stitching it in April and finally "finished" it about 2 weeks ago.

Mickey Mouse
Leisure Arts Disney Christmas book
Stitched on 28 ct opalescent white fabric

My son only has a couple more days of school left. He is ready for his summer vacation and I must confess that I am ready for this school year to be over. There is one particular teacher that has been a thorn in my flesh all year. Will be so glad to have him out of her class.

Latest Movie Thoughts:

I haven't done this since the beginning of the year, so some of the movies might be out on DVD already.

Extraordinary Measures - seemed more like a "made for TV" movie than a big screen movie, but I enjoyed it.
The Young Victoria - I loved this period piece movie of Queen Victoria!
Edge of Darkness - a good action/suspense movie
Valentine's Day - good, but not great. With this cast I expected more.
Dear John - good Nicholas Sparks movie. A little different than book, but in a good way.
The Bounty Hunter - sooooooooooooo disappointing!!!
The Back-Up Plan - while there were some parts that were down right hilarious (especially if you have been pregnant/given birth), other parts just weren't. Overall I was disappointed.
Iron Man 2 - liked it a lot!!! But, I wouldn't say it was as good as the first one. Make sure to stay for the scene after all the credits if you are a fan of the Avengers/Shield Initiative, etc.
The Last Song - I loved this Nicholas Sparks movie! A little different than book, but, again, in a good way. Bring tissues.
Letters to Juliet - very enjoyable. Beautiful scenery of Italy.

Hope everyone is doing well. That's all I got right now. :-)

Maybe you need to go browsing through some needlework websites and find a new design that excites you! It may help to bring the urge back.
Love the Mickey ornament. Beautifully done.

What a cute finish! I hope your stitching mojo returns soon. How about stepping over to my blog for a contest on a pattern. Maybe this will help stirs up some stitching vibes? Have a wonderful week.
