A Little of This and a Little of That

Not much sewing going on at Casa Danvillegirl.  Motivation to sew has been somewhat lacking.  I only have to hem the McCall's top and I will have a new one to wear.  I just turned up the hem a moment ago and totally lost interest in sitting down to sew.

I thought I would just take a moment to post something on the blog; unfortunately blogging has been neglected some also.  I am not a big fan of winter and I can feel the winter blues at the moment.  Yesterday we had a glimpse of spring and today temperatures plummeted.  I know compared to some others this is hardly winter.

I have made it through January and 5 days into February without buying a pattern. I have been very tempted as new ones keep cropping up.  Since I am not feeling the mojo to sew I have in the past purchased patterns.  I am telling myself no sewing mojo no patterns.  Trust me I have a lot to motivate me when the sewing muse hits again.

Later.

  1. I'm feeling a bit the same way Linda, only here it is not winter. What I do during these periods is make myself sew a little bit - just one seam, or overlock a piece. Not always easy to do when you are feeling low, but it helps to maintain some sewing momentum which in turn helps when the mojo returns.

    1. I think it is the transition of seasons.I like what you are suggesting. Sometimes walking into my sewing room just pushes the thought of sewing. Last night I pulled out lots of patterns to try to motivate me to select something to sew next.

  2. Hi Linda,
    I know you feel. I have plenty of time to sew, but I am having a difficult time motivating myself to do something. Good luck.

    1. Thanks, Cennetta. I am playing around in sewing room, hemmed my top that I had started and feeling a little more like sewing.

  3. I remember those Virginia mountain winters...and miss them. But even here in sunny Florida I lose mojo. You are so productive in your sewing, no wonder your brain took a break!

    1. I lived in Lakeland, FL for nine years and I remember my winters there, loved them!!!! I know we all have moments of lack of sewing interest.
