Mojo -- Gone Again!

I'm really struggling with motivating myself to work on any sewing projects lately. I suppose this isn't necessarily a bad thing. Just very different from what I am used to. Normally, I want to spend every spare second I can on my sewing projects. Lately? Not so much. Can't remember the last thing I sewed, but it's been more than just a couple days. And I'm actually just fine with that!

Thinking back, I now realize I go through cycles where I feel my "sewing mojo" has gone missing. This time feels a little different somehow. I don't feel panicked about it, like I "should" be working on something. That's probably good. One shouldn't feel obligated to work on fun projects!

There are some big plusses to the situation: {1} I've been excavating some of the "piles" in my house -- doing a lot of chucking, donating, and general "spring cleaning." This is very good for the soul! (It also makes Mr very happy!) {2} I've done some really great (non-sewing related) projects with my boys this week. They love it and I love it, and it's been a lot of fun for everyone!

Well. We'll be leaving on a trip in the near future, and I hope to do a lot of relaxing and hanging out with family. I've got a long list of really great project ideas, and I hope to get cracking on them when we get home!

I like the cycles I go through, some weeks all I want to do is sew, then others I am frantically scrap booking, writing, crocheting, making crafts, working out, cooking. It makes life more interesting.
I think it makes us renaissance women :-)

Halloween has just kicked my butt. I need another month before the holidays, I don't know how I will get anything done. I can send out holiday cards on the 21st, right? They'll get to europe on time?
