Creative Dilemma

Before the hubs and I went on our great adventure of cruising and grandchild watching, and before I took a job teaching English in a public high school, I had a serious plan for quilting my way through life.    Before all that, I had a goal to finish 14 quilts in 2014.  These are the 8 I actually finished, backing, batting, binding and all.

The other 6?...  well, sadly they were left in the dust. And I think I have 4 or 5 other finished quilt tops that are ready to be quilted.  And I have tons of fabrics which have {mysteriously} found their way into the sewing room along with patterns and books in case I want to begin something new.

But what I'm finding, after almost 11 months of being away from my sewing room is that I don't know where to start.  My fingers are "itchin' to be stitchin'" but I just can't settle on a project.  It's crazy. 

I find myself reading books rather than sewing.  Maybe it's easier to decide what to read than what to create?  Even this blog post took 3 days to write.

I expected to have a new quilt top done by now and ...  nothing.  What is wrong with me?  Where is my creative mojo?  Oh dear!


  1. welcome back to the sewing room! It will come. Hugs to you!

  2. I get "stuck" sometimes as well. My solution is this -- Just. Make. Something. A pot holder. A zip pouch. A block with no specific plan to use it. A small amount of fabric, a small amount of time. Usually it will be enough to get me back in the swing of things.


I love comments! Please - make my day!
