Losing momentum...

I have a load of projects to work on:

Mom's quilt for Xmas
3x6 blocks (I'm doing a Greek cross and have fabric picked out for 4 out of the 6 folks)
the small item for my Make Mine Modern swap (I have an idea, I just haven't cut fabric or sewn)
the Prayer Flag quilt I started for me
The last row of the Rockin Robin (to be posted tomorrow)
the swap item for the For the Love of Solids swap
a quilt top for a little girl in Joplin

I was just feeling wiped out/sick this weekend...out of energy.
I'm trying to gear up again to get going. All I've gotten done today was cutting up bits. I finished a Skill Builder block yesterday...and it was all I had the energy to do.
Skill Builder #6 (block 7)
I like it. I'm realizing, though, that I am going to have to get more fat quarters at some point, because, if I do the challenge blocks, I will not have nearly enough fabric.

I think part of the problem is I'm feeling idea-less.
I'm totally stuck on what to make for the solid swap. I was thinking maybe a wall hanging, but my partner isn't as talky as me (really, who is?) and I'm not sure which colors to use for her. Blarg. Plus my brain is trying to get me to read (just finished The Help...wanted to read it before the movie), clean the house, and restock my classroom all at the same time. Needless to say, I'm not sleeping enough/having trouble winding down.
