Tread Softly

Ssshhh! Come quietly! I’ve spotted my mojo and I don’t want to scare him away.

I’ve felt his presence for a little while now, a slight tingling in my fingers, and occasionally I’ve caught a glimpse of him in the corner of my eye. I’ve sat very still, patiently waiting for him to feel comfortable around me again. I’ve started to leave out a few nice things to tempt him.

A couple of evenings ago he crept out of his hiding place and played quietly with a nice silk and gold project I had framed up for him. He didn’t stay long but I was a delight to have him around, even for a short time. When he was ready to leave, I didn’t make a fuss or cajole him to stay longer and this morning I was rewarded with another visit. He sat straight down at the Poppy Pouch that I had left out and started to stitch. He enjoyed himself so much that I didn’t want to remind him when it was time for me to leave for work. I could see how reluctant he was to put the beads away but I reassured him that he is always welcome.

Ask Mojo if he'd like to come to Manchester with you. I'm sure he'll enjoy the visit.

PS - ask him if he's seen my textbook!

Good to know he's visiting again. Just goes to show patience is rewarded!

Think all Mojo's are on holiday, mine has gone missing too.
