Happy April Fools Day!

HELLO!! I am still here! I was just telling Jill that I think I have lost my quilting "mojo" I havent blogged because I really have not done anything blog worthy (have I ever?) Same old school and housework and Cade stuff. I have 2 projects that I need to get busy on but...sigh..I havent:( I do have the house to myself today (till Cade gets home) and I have been in my sewing room...not sewing, eating Cheese-Its and watching Criminal Minds. I went through some of my fabrics hoping to get a fabric high. Here is my main fabric cabinet. It doesnt look bad. Til I realized that I have to stuff all of this back in there

and this...

Tomorrow, Andy and I are going to Kelsey's college for a Sorority Banquet. I am excitied to see her and meet her "Sister's"

What do you do when you have no desire to sew? Do you ever get bored with your fabric and look for a different direction?

It happens. It helps that I like scrappy - so sometimes I will look for quirky scrappy patterns that will use up a bunch of odds and ends. When I don't feel like sewing - sometimes I get into cutting and trimming mode, and will clean up my scrap bins. I am also pulled by my garden this time of year.

I've never really accumulated a stash of fabric. At 78, I don't want a lot of fabric for my kids to eventually have to get rid of, so my stash is all scraps. But I love scrappy things the most so that's fine. I still consider sewing my leisure activity so I look forward to it.

Ohhhh....such pretty fabrics! Don't worry, I think I have lost my mojo too. As you know, I have many things on my mind right now and I just find it hard to sit down and sew. I did go out to the new house a little while ago and move a bunch of scrap pieces of drywall out of the way and cleaned that room up because I need to load a customer quilt on there soon.

This sounds like the perfect PIGS question for this week!!! I will post my answer on Wednesday! :)

I went through some rough emotional times in the last few years. I was really losing my mojo and it really bothered me. But suddenly I got really busy with customer's quilts (I machine quilt) and it was just what I needed!

Every so often, I take a day and set it aside to straighten up and organize my sewing room. When I'm done, I cannot wait to get started on my next project because of all the fun fabrics I 're-discovered' in my stash, and patterns I couldn't wait to make! You'll get there again, hang in there!
