Every now and then I go through a stage where I just don't want to do any sewing and am just coming out of the other end of one of these "stages". In fact I haven't wanted to do much of anything lately. 2012 was a tough year and I guess I just needed to let some things go for a while.
But, anyway, I've been needing to make myself a new pocketbook and even cut one out before Christmas.
Finally, on Saturday I drug myself into the sewing room and literally made myself work on it. I had the day to myself as Hubby was on an all day business trip in Columbia, SC. You should have seen the size of his knee after being on it with no elevation for about 12 hours straight! Its back to normal this morning as he heads off to work. He puts it up on his trashcan off an on throughout the work day.
I REALLY did not want to sew, but made myself get started. I would sew for 30 minutes and then go switch out the laundry or spend 15 minutes organizing Christmas stuff.
As I made progress on the pocketbook, I gained momentum and finished it.
I even made a matching key fob.
Sunday morning when I left for church I was so glad I finished it and enjoyed carrying the new pocketbook and key fob very much!
I think I may have gotten my sewing mojo back. I even started a new quilt project which you can read about on my Angel Scraps Quilting blog.
