Anyone else in a sewing slump? I just can't seem to get down there and at it. I did do some cutting out this evening, but not for very long. I think it's partly because I had a few tough projects that I wasn't very happy with the results, and now I just can't seem to get back to it. I really want to do some t-shirts and camisoles for summer which is quickly passing me by.

I am! I just finished a raffle quilt two weeks ago and now I am just not motivated at all. I will just take some time to enjoy some down time and summer evenings on the patio. This too shall pass! It happens!

Not me. I did slow down a bit and now I'm short of time but I have a bunch of projects that I am very excited about waiting on the shelf.
Every once in a while I go a few days or even weeks without much sewing. Usually because work or life gets in the way.

I have been in a slump but I think it is mostly because it is too hot. DD(23) is moving out & I am tking over her room for my sewingroom & computer. Much bigger room but less storage. I will fill in with lots of bookcases & other wall shelving. The best thing is the room is airconditioned. Probably won't move much until next week as the room needs a good cleaning & maybe a coat of paint.
I am going to try to make matching shirts for DD(28) & her goddaughter for her birthday.
Happiness is having time to sew!!
