This happens to me each and every year at this time. I work crazy, crazy hours from Christmas until the end of February and sewing becomes a far-off dream. This year I have really been looking forward to getting back to my sewing more than usual as I’ve lost about 25 pounds since Thanksgiving and my clothes look a little ridiculous on me. I want to show off my new svelte shape, for heaven’s sake! I’ve managed to buy a few pairs of jeans and stitched up a dress and a top but I need more CLOTHES and lots of them! I want to SEW! I have FABRIC! I have PATTERNS! I have every NOTION I could possibly need! Why can’t I get started? Is it the fact that I can’t pull out a tried-and-true pattern and just whip something up? Maybe that’s my trouble this year as that is where I usually begin to ease myself back into it. Now I have to retrace and alter my patterns all over again, sigh. Maybe I will just trace one pattern first thing tomorrow morning and pick out some fabric so that I’ll be ready to go the next time I have a few hours free. Honestly, I’m really annoying myself here.
Tell me, what do YOU do when you get stuck?
