Stuck in a Rut

Sewing, crafting, what is that? I haven't touched my sewing machine in weeks. My sewing room looks like a dumping ground for fabric, patterns, trims, and now scrapbooking stuff. I mean it literally looks like a storage closet in there. Piles of fabric and patterns all over the place. There are unopened boxes in there too. I have created a small walk way so I can get to the computer but that is about it. You can't even see the sewing machine from the door any more. sigh

I have been stuck in this rut since the holidays. I have absolutely no motivation to do anything.
I made a resolution to be more organized this year and to follow through with what I start. So far it has not gone too well. I cleaned up Brooke's room and the play area then lost my drive. I started an outfit for her 2 weeks ago and still have not finished it.

I don't know how to get out of this funk. All I know is that I have become a fabric collector with great iedeas but no follow through. My daughter will be full grown and unwilling to wear anything I could make her if I keep on this path.

I NEED to do something to jump start my creative juices again.

Just go and look at all your pretty fabric or something someone made on Etsy and that will inspire you. It always kinda gets me going. Good luck!!

I was feeling the same way after Christmas! I think it has something to do with how busy and creative we were before the holidays...and we just need the rest! I have been sewing more now, but January was the pitts!
Love the Valentine Skirt...and your daughter is beautiful!
