Stitching mojo may have returned

Well I finally picked up a needle and thread on Monday night. After contemplating a new start and then deciding I had quite enough WIP's as it was, I decided to do the last part of How Does Your Garden Grow? This was really quick to do. I stitched it all in one evening and then beaded it Tuesday morning. Now I have a problem - it needed washing and off course needs ironing. The trouble is I used invisible thread to attach the beads and if I iron it I suspect the beads will all drop off! Any ideas what I can do??

After finishing that, I decided to finish off June Zooms as there wasn't a lot to do on it. That got finished Tuesday too.
On Wednesday I finished January Snows and started March Blows, which I finished today. Finally, more than 5 years after it was started, the whole series is finally stitched!!

I contemplated a new start and even picked out a chart and found the fabric for it. Unfortuantely I can't find where on earth I put the threads for it!

Great to hear your mojo returned, and how!!! what a lovely set of stitching.

For the magin thread, I've never tried it, but I'd suggest attaching a few beads to a scrap of fabbie and test it - perhaps with a cloth (hanky, tea towel) between the orin and the xs. Ironing on the reverse with a terry towel underneath of course... multiple layers, but it may help! But definitely on a test piece first.
