Have any one seen my sewing mojo?

Because it appears to be missing.

I, in fact, did not sew all weekend.  The last thing I finished was my I love the 80s swap item.

I'll post pics as soon as I hear my partner has received it.

Frankly, I'm tired.  I'm not sleeping well or easily.

I'm trying to juggle wedding planning with writing evals...and then last week, my laptop died.

It was resuscitated, but froze up over the weekend.  I got it back today, but no one can give me a clear answer as to why it is being weird.

Things I have accomplished:

Honeymoon hotels booked
Transport sussed out on that bit

Crayons for wedding favors mailed to mom (and rec'd unmelted!)
groom and groomsmen's ties ordered
wedding ring for Pirate successfully gotten
attempt to grow nails before ceremony begun
little gift bags ordered
library card catalog drawer for guest book stuff purchased
part of bridesmaids' presents ordered
hair flower ordered

I still have to make the clutches for the ladies, baste/quilt/bind the Heal quilt, and baste/quilt/bind the Orbit quilt from Stash Bash.

I made some scrappy trip blocks but discovered that I must have miscounted and in no way have enough blocks to make more than a small throw quilt.  So, hrm.

The finish line to my FAL list seems to be drifting farther and farther away.
Blarg.

So....May goal.  My May goal is to finish the Heal quilt because it needs to go to someone in hospice and holding on to it is making me feel like a bad, lazy person.

Honestly, for the FAL as well, I'm not seeing getting much more off the list.  I have 16 down.
I will at least finish:
the 3 clutches, the Heal quilt, the Orbit quilt, the infinity scarf, and the HST Project Linus quilt.
If I can hit 23, it will be a major achievement.

I'm going to try to power through a bunch Thurs-Sun.  I don't have much free time after that.

Blarg.  If you find my sewing mojo, please return it to me by Thursday.  I kind of need it back then.

Thanks....

  1. Sometimes you need time off from sewing, I've not even sat in my sewing chair for the last 3 days!

  5. Well considering all that it takes to plan a wedding, it isn't a surprised that you don't have as much time lately for sewing. Take it easy on yourself on that front. Once all the craziness had died down, your mojo will return good and strong.
