March was in like a lamb and out like a lion. for me The last few days of the month have been a whirlwind of emotion. It’s been Excitingt, Daring, Heartbreaking all at breakneck speeds. I’ve lost all desire to knit. I have sewn but only very short burst. It’s like every drop of creativity has been zapped out of me. Most days I would prefer to stay in bed with my weenies and hide with big cups of tea and my kindle. I want nothing more than to be done with this funk. As big of a pain in the ass that moving has become I am glad that it is happening. I think our cute new little home will be a welcome change. I managed last weekend to break thru my funk if only for a few hours and make a new spring bag.
Ramona Rose’s The Awesome Bag Pattern is amazing. I can’t wait to make a few more of these cute things. I bought all the fabric for this one from Bolt. I’m not quite sure who made the amazing record fabric, but it is a heaver weight fabric perfect for this bag.
The lining fabric is this charming Leah Duncan fabric from her new Meadow collection. Everytime I used Art Gallery Fabric I am so impressed. I really looking forward to making a dress out of one of their up coming collections.
I’m usually pretty good about making lemons into lemonade, right now I feel like I’m all out of sugar. Until it passes I guess it’s good books and music and tea… I guess that isn’t so bad either.
What do you do to pull yourself out of a funk? Any good books I need to read?
