I am in desperate need of some! I've got a list of projects "to-do," but seem to be lacking the motivation to start them. Here's my list:

  • Placemats for my kitchen (fabric bought & pre-washed)
  • "Dr. Seuss" Disappearing 9-patch baby quilt (fabric bought & pre-washed)
  • "Cuddle" blanket for my Niece (fabric bought)
  • Cleveland Browns Baby Rag Quilt (fabric/materials bought)
  • (5) Self-Binding Receiving Blankets for gift stash (fabric bought & partially pre-washed)
  • "Jolly Jelly Roll" Quilt for my BFF for Christmas (fabric bought)
  • "Summer In The Park" Quilt for my living room (fabric bought)
I'm also trying real hard to finish a knitted baby blanket for a baby shower I have to go to in June, plus I've got 3 knitting UFOs that need to be wrapped up ASAP.  Fortunately, knitting is one craft that I can take pretty much anywhere and work on it here and there.  I can't exactly lug my sewing machine around to work on projects.  Lol. 

I have a relatively quiet weekend coming up and I'm trying to get the motivation to get into my "craft cave" and start working on projects.

I got my room somewhat cleaned up last weekend, but found myself just staring at the tubs of fabric, just waiting to get touched. Just didn't have any motivation to start anything. Now the list is long, and the urge to keep planning (and shopping for) future projects is becoming overwhelming again. I made myself a promise though.... no more buying until I finish something. You'd think that would be motivation enough, but not so much.

Unfortunately, I've been under the weather over the past few days, so I REALLY haven't been doing much of anything other than sleeping.   I'm really hoping to get back in the swing of things tomorrow night and at least tackle somethingANYTHING.  We've got a couple of errands to run right after work, but then it's going to be off to my "craft cave" to work.  Maybe I'll get the fabric for the cuddle quilt washed... maybe it'll be cutting out the pieces for my placemats.  We'll just have to wait and see.  But I am determined to do something!


  1. Hope you are feeling better soon and that your motivation returns. My motivation also disappeared - maybe they on having a holiday together LOL. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks Karon!! I'm feeling much better today and determined to get my mojo going again! Hope you have a great weekend too!

  2. I can relate, Jess. I wasn't feeling great this week, either. I wish i could find the motivation to clean my house before my daughter comes home from college tomorrow. I need to make space for her to dump her stuff!
