Well, hello guys. Sorry about the long absence, longer than usual, but sewing really has taken a back seat in my life at the moment.
There is the issue of time as always. As a family we have been busy, had a holiday, went to a couple of amazing concerts and several other mini events over the summer weekends. So my limited me time is somewhat delegated else where, and sometimes that time is spent just sitting on my booty having a lazy moment amongst the madness.
I am also doing other creative things that take away from the time and energy I have for sewing and blogging. I also am on a new weight loss programme and the gym is becoming a big go to for me. I am one of those weird people that love the gym: Air conditioning, people keeping themselves to themselves, not being a mum for an hour and getting a break from my kid… all the great things!
Also, I feel like mentally I have taken a step back from sewing. Without going into to much detail, I put myself out there in regards to moving forward with my sewing. Something I never do as I am such a Lone wolf, but I felt confident and it felt right. Anyway, long story short I got rejected. I was absolutely fine with this as I still had a slight apprehension, but subconsciously I think I just couldn’t face sewing any more… And still I am not sewing, despite sorting out my fabric stash and buying new patterns.
I think what has concerned me the most is after I did a little look for a certain type of fabric online for a new pattern, I thought ‘Sod it! I will just see what my little local fabric shop has for me’ (not been there in a while) And as soon as I had had that thought, I instantly didn’t want to go… I didn’t want to go fabric shopping… me. Something is still not right. And its made me a little sad, hence why I am now on here. Hopefully some blogging will get me excited again. I still have 5 or 6 drafts to edit, they just sat here all this time, abandoned. They need to see the light of day, I made some beautiful things before my Mojo left.
Sorry to be such a bore, but hopefully this is the first step in moving forward. I will probably as always be floating round Instagram being nosy at everyone’s stuff!
Keep watching for some updates.
