I hate it when...

Life gets in the way...

I mean my sewing mojo was going, revved up high and running on all *eight* cyclinders. I was moving into uncharted territory - moving away from my list, getting ready to sew for the creativeness of it when....BAM!!!!...life got in the way!

Now my head is all twisted up and turned around...I can feel my sewing mojo slowly slipping away...and I don't know what to sew next. It isn't like I am going to lose a lot of sewing time behind this blip in the road...but it has unsettled me enough to make me doubt myself for just a minute...and to make me wonder what to do next?

So here I sit on Thursday evening...the easy 4 gore skirt just needs a hem...I can do that! I...can...do...that! And I have to be away from home tomorrow for most of the day so I don't know if I will sew at all tomorrow! I can pick my sewing back up on Saturday morning, but what to make? What direction to take? And can I get it completed over the weekend ~ 'cause somewhere in there I have to mentally prepare to go back to...work...

Ahhhhhh, I hate when life gets in the way! Now where did I put those numbers for the Mega Millions lottery tickets I need to purchase tomorrow!

  1. Guarranted that 'life' can and will get in the way of the best laid plans. Now, my suggested plan for the lottery ticket is to 'plan to lose', to be really committed to that goal-based on recent experience-who know's-'life' may just end up thwarting that plan too...

  2. Oh, I totally understand your post, having written a similar one not so long ago! Don't feel too bad. You completed a major project this week (and the border print skirt?) so give yourself some props for that. And if the rest of vacay is spend chillin' and watching Netflix, well, that's ok too.

  3. Hey in there. If it helps, I don't think multigazillionaires, aren't interrupted by life.

  4. Get that sewing mojo going, girl! A lot of us are inspired by your blog. I'm waiting to see what you dream up for fall...

  5. How about some work on the Threads pattern? You may not get anything finised to wear but you will feel good that you have started.

  6. I don't really think your mojo is gone, it's just in a quieter phase. You go through the production phases, you have to go through the mulling over, waiting for inspiration, daydreaming and shopping phases, too! The actual cutting, stitching and pressing will return in their time. Your list of completed projects is proof!

  7. How about a bright red blouse to go with the Jackie-O suit? That's what I'd wear with it, hehe.

    Great suit, by the way.

    My mojo gets interrupted all of the time. I MUST make pants this weekend. MUST.

  8. I hate when the "mojo" leaves. I always loose momentum after a major project, that's why I jumped right into the next one.

  9. I think it's okay to take a break once in a while. Then when you're ready, you'll have a renewed sense of purpose and creativity. All that said, I hope your mojo comes back soon!

  10. Remember these words from that ol' spiritual: "I'm so glad trouble don't last always" That thought has gotten me through the times when life got in the way.

  11. Hay, other people live totally Mojo-free lives and never notice the absence. Other people live with thier Mojo on All The Time! They don't know the value of it. The best Mojo comes and goes, adding flavor to life when it is here, and a different flavor when it is gone.

    Viva la Flakey Mojo!
