It feels like my sewing mojo has been gone for months. I thought it was coming back when I received those wonderful vintage sheet fat quarters. However, a stinking cold seems to have driven my mojo back into hiding. Even though it's on it's way out my mojo is showing no sign of wanting to return. I may have felt more inclined to finish my vintage sheet quilt if I had managed to find anything suitable online to back it with. I bid on a couple of sheets on ebay but the prices went way higher than I was prepared to pay for a used sheet. So it lays discarded over a chair in the dining room.
I think it's not helping that each month I'm feeling a huge pressure to sew bee blocks. I still have a January one to complete before I can even think about February. I'd joined the bee's in such enthusiasm and now they feel like a huge chore. I no longer window shop at online fabric stores and even the lovelies that pop up over on flickr don't inspire me to get sewing. I'm beginning to wonder if I've fallen out of love with sewing. It's a scary thought.
What I have been doing a lot of is cooking and reading. I've read over 10 books this year already and I'm not even speed reading. I also had book club this week too. Next times choice is a real tome of a novel. So it's as well as I'm the mood for reading.
I've also not missed a day of project 365, even though some days I am challenged to find some good inspiration for a photograph.
Chief got down here last weekend. It was a flying visit. (In other words over four hours of driving for him to spend three hours with me.) I hadn't seen him since early December so it was lovely to see him and give him his Christmas presents. I'm still waiting for mine as he's not been shopping yet. I teased him I may get extra as I'm having to wait.
We have our fingers crossed that he can get down next weekend and stay for a whole night. We have talked about getting a night away, but that seems unlikely so we'll keep the money in the kitty for another time. He tells me Paris is still on the agenda for the warmer weather and when his Valentines card arrived he asked me if I noticed the French script on the card (I had).
I'm hoping I can at least get the January Bee block made over the weekend. How will you be spending your weekend?
