October 3rd, 2010 - The Stash

So, it’s week #40 or something like that. I haven’t been doing much of anything these weeks. Why? I don’t feel like it I guess. I have big plans but they never seem to happen. I’ve been cleaning out my sewing room a bit and I can’t believe how many patterns I have. I’m giving all the ones I know I’ll never make to my sister and she can either keep them or give them to her quilty friends. The same applies to all my cross-stitch patterns. I got rid of the cross-stitch magazines to a friend at work but she didn’t want the patterns. Oh well, it’s her loss! Now to just start sewing.

 The stash remains the same, nothing in and nothing out. Maybe in the next week I’ll feel like sewing. I have a few quilts to bind and quite a few to start. I can’t even get the ambition to cut something out. I went to a sewing show in Novi last week and no inspiration there. I even went to a quilt show on Friday and again, nothing. Must be the weather or something.

  Yesterday I went to a Zumba class that I won in a silent auction . What a gas!  I really enjoyed it and I’m going back next week. I’m a little sore but nothing that would stop me from doing anything.

 Fabric used this week: 0 yds

Fabric used YTD: 141.66 yds

Fabric added this week: 0 yds

Fabric added YTD:165.86 yds

Net fabric busted: -24.2 yds

 Okay, I need to get busy and do some sewing. I’ll keep repeating this to myself and maybe it will happen. I sound sad but I’m not, I’m just not in to sewing lately. Lots of beautiful things to make but no ambition. Actually as I type this, I remembered that I worked on a Crabapple Hill stitchery this week, That counts as something. Now I don’t feel so bad. Have a great week and get some sewing done.

M-K   the quilting junkie….not!

    Hey we all go through bouts of this – I do think the change in weather has something to do with it. I did buy a book of little things to make, for the sewing room, but they’re so fiddly I don’t know if I’ll ever make them or not – sigh!

    Sometimes when this happens to me, I just go with the flow and do something else. Forcing yourself to sew makes it work and not fun and it is suppose to be fun not stressful. So my advice is to stop stressing over not sewing and enjoy what you are doing. Your quilt muse will show back up. Mine did with a passion.

    One time I took a year off of quilting. Nothing excited me. Gradually my interest increased. I don’t do as much as I used to but enough to make me happy. Since we do this for fun, don’t force it. Just do what you like. That is what is important.
