My usual modus operandi for sewing malaise is to start something new because that always excites me. So Saturday morning I wrote a list of all my WIP's to see if I could convince myself to squeeze something else in but all I ended up was horrified. I have eight WIPs in varying stages of not nearly finished . The sensible voice in my head has decreed I cant start anything else until I finish something old. (I hate that chick ) At this rate I'll probably be finishing up my flower garden hexie quilt in the nursing home.
That didn't stop me from buying fabric last week.I'm counting that as a creative pursuit.
I promised myself I could start one new project for any two things I finish and woke Saturday full of good intentions. Then I popped out to help Miss P furniture shop ....which turned into 4 hours of retail therapy where she didn't buy anything furniture wise but we can now both flash our new undies in public without fear of ridicule if necessary.
I also managed to come home with furniture. Can I count that as something sewing related?
The sleeping fairy sprinkled way too much fairy dust about Saturday afternoon and sadly I fell asleep at tea time for a 5 hour Nanna nap. Technically I guess that's more of a coma than a nap.
Despite me mimicking Rip Van Winkle a dozen hour glass blocks materialised this week.
And I did a load of prep for the next time motivation finds me
I spent some time playing with hexies
Lookeeeee here ...actual progress!
And I got some of my scraps out and threw them round my cutting table to make it look like I'd been incredibly busy and creative. It looks so realistic I almost fooled myself.
There you have it - the week that was. At least I found my sewing machine this week! Linking up with Kate and the gang over at Life in Pieces . Pop on over and look at all the sewing brilliance.
