Lacking Motivation

This weekend passed me by, and I barely sewed a stitch!  I found myself with lots of ideas but no motivation to set things up and make progress!  Most notable, I know the bag I want to make.  I want to alter this pattern to make it better, and actually offer it as a pattern.  Now to get started!

I really like the bag, but after carrying it for a few months, I was finding little issues that I had with it, so I’m planning to make some alterations, and cut up some bright springy fabrics to make it!


With no sewing to share, I thought I ought to remind you to check out the BOM with Jackie!  Amy has a great tutorial up, really all the blocks have been great!  Join in if you haven’t yet.

Also, many thanks to all the compliments on my runner – I’m wishing you all good luck in the giveaway!

Happy Monday – Amy

    I feel just the same and no motivation is really annoying. Today I will sew, whatever it may be!!

    Im glad to see I’m not the only one who suffers from lack of motivation from time to time. Can’t wait to see your bag!

    Boy do I relate to the lack of motivation…The “spring” allergy season is in full bloom here – it’s February for Pete’s sake! I have two baby quilts that need to be finished in March, so I need to get my “sewjo” back in a jiffy lol. Hopefully this week we will get some much needed rain to wash all this pollen out of the air. I can’t wait to see what you do with the bag pattern :)

    I have so many irons in the fire that I’m not sure where to start! However, I love that you are going to modify a bag to make it just what you want. Good luck!

    So glad I’m not alone! I’m house-sitting and brought all my projects with me…nothing to do but sew and I spend the day on Pintrest getting more ideas! Just what I need! :)

    I’m glad I’m not the only one! I have so many great plans but I somehow couldn’t get going on making them real this last weekend. But– it’s another week! Bring on the motivation! :)

    Good luck on your bag pattern re-vamp. It’s already super-cute– I look forward to finding out how you make it even better!

    This spring has turned into an extremely busy with little time for squeezing in all the sewing I too had swirling around my head…. Oh well, springs not over yet :o)
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

    Glad to see I’m not alone. It’s been very frustrating knowing how much work I have to do in my sewing and not having the umph to get up and do it. Keep hoping it will pass real soon.

    Last week I sewed for fun precisely because I was lacking the motivation. It helped. Now I’m back to not enough time for all the ideas!

    Exhaustion? It’s ok…:)

    I agree its hard some days to get started, but then once you start sewing it is always so hard to stop. I have a fun baby quilt I need to get started on soon before the baby gets here.
