Some people begin the New Year with GREAT enthusiasm....and I am usually one of THOSE people. My Mom is ALWAYS one of those people!!!
This year for me NOT so much.....at least where my sewing machine is concerned. I think I have lost my MOJO!!!!
Not that I haven't sewn at all....in fact I made this diaper bag for Meghan ( complete with changing pad and vinyl lined "Yuk" bag for those things you don't want to just put in your diaper bag) .
If you are interested, the AWESOME pattern is free by going to the Mingled Yarn blog, and I can tell you ( I have made it twice) that it goes together like a charm.
What seems to be missing right now is my quilting mojo. I taught a 12 hr class this weekend and was SOOOO excited to be able to begin this quilt with my students. But I have a confession....I just wasn't feeling it.
I guess I have BABY on the mind, but maybe also a bit of an overwhelm at how many patterns and how much fabric I have in my stash. Sometimes tooooo much is not a good thing.
SEW....I am trying something new. I bought this very cute journal and pen at Michaels. They have a new "Shabby Chic" line and I love it very much.
I started the journal on an optimistic note...a place to document all finished quilts. Then I have divided the rest of the journal into monthly goals with only ONE start and a place to finish ONE quilt that is already completed.
I am hoping that taking small bites will increase my appetite for quilting once again. I wish this worked for my FOOD appetite....which sadly never seems to lose its mojo. I will keep you posted on how things go.
