"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

Nothing to show.

I haven't had a chance to do any sewing since MIL passed away, and the way things are going, I can't see much happening in the near future, which makes me feel guilty as hell because I committed myself to making quilt tops for the victims of Hurricane Sandy, but I haven't done a thing.  I've also promised to make cot quilts for a family member who works with displaced people in New Guinea.   AND, offered to make a small quilt for fire victims in Tassie....
So what is the hold up?  Well, I just haven't felt in the mood for one thing, with our family loss, the heat here, and just doing other things instead.  I've booked myself into several art classes and workshops, as I've decided to do more sketching this year instead of sewing.  I will still do some sewing, but not sure when and how much.  So if you don't stop by this blog for the next month or so, you won't be missing much!

Sometimes we all need to take a break and do something different to get our batteries re charged. Hope you feel better as you sketch along!

Have fun sketching and take time to enjoy yourself. Can't wait to see your sketches!

Sometimes you do need a little break to recharge you batteries.

Well, they say a break is as good as a holiday. You'll get back to sewing when you feel like it. Enjoy your sketching.

Sounds like you have earned the break. When you feel ready, I'd love to swap with you. Just let me know which origami flower you want and I'll get it on its way.

I can only agree with what everyone else says. It takes time to adjust to major changes like that, and sometimes we just need to take a break and do something different. Enjoy your workshops and classes

Take care, Gina. Don't put any undue pressure on yourself. We all go through these times.

Sending big hugs your way,
