an unplanned deviation

I have a loose editorial calendar that helps me keep this space organized. Actually scheduling posts to write helps me know when I need to take pictures and reminds me of collecting links and other blogging minutiae.


I’d planned this week to post about my whitewashed fireplace and the coat I made for my mother-in-law for Christmas. And sometimes you need to deviate from the plan. So today instead of taking pictures of my fireplace, I cleaned the fridge. Not just a throwing-out-old-leftovers clean, but an honest, cleaning-the-mysterious-crusted-spill-underneath-the-produce-drawer clean. It’s a job I really hate, and I do it only about once a year. And today was that day.

Then I crashed on the couch with a tuna fish sandwich and never mustered the energy to come upstairs to sew. My sewing mojo has been off this week, and I’ve diverted my creative energy into a fun DIY piece (which I’ll share soon!). I have a project cut out ready to stitch, so I think I just need to sit down and start. Because you know how sometimes when you just start, you find a groove? Yeah, that’s what I’m crossing my fingers for.

What do you do when you lose track of your sewing mojo? Any tricks you have to get you out of a funk?

    It’s been really hard to find time to sew anything lately. BUT I did manage to learn to thread the serger that I got for Christmas and I finished the edges of a towel I cut up into little washcloths to wipe down my baby after she eats (I like to have a stack of these that I can use once or twice and throw in the wash). I did the latter with baby on my lap, since I could do it one-handed.
