Sewing

Suspended Animation

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?

    1. yeah, normally spring is my favorite sewing season, all the cute sundresses that I can wear until fall. Well I hope something changes cause I have quite a few things to sew for Me Made May!

  1. I seem to have been in a bit of a writing funk lately too…I think it was partially do to the weather and just being super busy lately. Normally a hot bath and glass of wine or tea helps me πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks so much! I just added that book to my wish list a few days ago! I am gonna check it out after I am done with my current read.

  2. I think your new house will definitely help pull you out of your rut… sometimes you just need something to shake up your world a little bit! I am in sort of a rut myself lately. I’ve been enjoying blogging, but don’t have the energy for anything else…. every day I have to argue myself out of bed!

    1. I agree. I think the listless feeling also is from how turned upside down my schedule is right now with all the packing and the purging.
