Mojo ebbing

2011 January 27
by elizabeth_admin

My sewing mojo has disappeared on me.  And I was so close to finishing my S2337 dress.  Well, there’s always this weekend.  Tonight I have knitting group at my pad.

Uh oh… better clean the apartment.

Hope you’re safe in snowy NYC and elsewhere on the planet.  If you have your sewing mojo, please post something for me to read.  😉

    It’ll come back soon, I am sure. Concentrate on you knitting needles for a little while I would suggest 🙂

    Re: Trench Coat Sew-Along

    I have a trench coat pattern, McCall’s infamous #5525. I wanted to review the sew-along as I’ve never made a trench before but I’ve found it to be such a mish-mash of posts. I was really hoping for something like Sewaholic’s pendrell sew-along. Am I looking in the wrong area?

    Thanks!

    my sewing mojo has been nowhere to be found for a while. I think it has to do with the state of my house… ugh!

    You have a full-time job, an absolutely adorable son, a knitting group coming to your apartment which needs cleaning and you question the temporary loss of a sewing mojo! How much energy can one person have? Give yourself a break already! Actually this comment is long overdue but I wanted to tell you how much I enjoy your new site. “Sew a Beginner” was an acceptable title for a while but once you made that gorgeous coat you advanced to the point where the title was misleading. Congratulations with “Sewn” It’s one of my favorites.

    you know, I feel the same way. This winter weather has disrupted everything. Usually, snow means I get to stay home and sew and indulge myself. This time it meant being cold and tired and cranky. Even though I am now in a place with lights and heat, I just want to eat ice cream and watch tv.

    Ooops, I made that all about me, didn’t I? Another symptom of my malaise; self absorption.

    You must have given me your sewing mojo because I am raring to go this weekend. I’m even going to stay off wine tonight so I can maximize my sewing efficiency and effectiveness 🙂 Oh, and I found my earmuffs – I had left them at a restaurant the night before I came out to visit. They are unscathed and don’t even smell like Italian food – yay!
    Have a great weekend, enjoy your knitting get together. Wish I was there!
