20 Sep Are you still out there?
Posted at 13:10h
Sorry for the long blog silence! September has been busy getting back to our routine. There are extracurricular activities to be signed up for and organizational meetings to attend. There are special events at school – last week we had Curriculum Night and this week we have Forum Day.
I have also been in a bit of a sewing funk. Sometimes I get this way after I have finished a bunch of projects like I did for the quilt show. I get enthusiastic about NEW projects, but not about the half a dozen ones that were abandoned at various stages so I could focus on the quilt show. Since I won’t allow myself to start another new project until some of the others get finished, I just don’t do anything! My poor sewing machine has been patiently waiting. (The needle plate of my sewing machine isn’t really blue. I have no idea why the photo came out this way).
So after two weeks of this (you may remember that I mostly took August off to focus on our house), I finally had a little talk with myself yesterday that amounted to “Just Do It”! I fired up the IPod with its many neglected podcasts and got some sewing done. I should have something to show you in the next day or two. I feel better already!
Do you get into sewing funks? How do you get out of them?
