I "forced" myself down to my sewing room after a two week hiatus. One week away and one week just thinking "I should be sewing right now" and somehow not making it happen. But as I entered my (messy) room and saw all the bits and pieces of pretty fabric, and it really wasn't hard.
On the program today, finishing my scrappy mountain blocks:
I am still undecided about the layout, but after looking at my pictures of this post, I wasn't quite feeling the "allover scrappy". I needed some "order" to tone down all that scrapiness and that movement.
So I started sewing pairs together. It still leaves me with several layout options:
I am glad I took these pictures because I just could not make up my mind from looking at the design wall. Now, I can probably eliminate 1 and 4 because I am not fond of the vertical lines they create. It's between 2 and 3 with a slight preference for number 2. A little scrappy, a little order... it has the right balance for me.
Do you run into motivation dry spells? How do you get over it?
