Is that my sewing mojo?

A couple of days before Christmas our weather turned decidedly wintry, so much so I put the fire on in the lounge room and cozied into the Princess Chair (this pic is just a reminder of the Princess Chair – it was taken in August in Actual Winter, when the sun was shining), while the rain poured down, the skies stayed grey and the temperature remained “cold”. So weird in the middle of Summer!

As I huddled there, I was reminded of the depths of Lockdown and how I spent lots of time in this very chair sewing………..and my fingers started to itch.

What was this I spied from the corner of my eye? Could this be…..? Was it really…..? Not daring to question it out loud, I nonchalantly pretended to turn the other way then quickly pounced on my sewing mojo, wrestling it into submission and before I knew it, those last little bits of applique on my “Vermont Summer Medallion” were completed

(you can see how dark/overcast it was by the photo!)

Before my mojo had time to flee again, I made and stitched on the elongated hexies

and even prepped the bits to finish the month’s quota, but sadly that’s as far as it went for this project (and the next month is now here – eek!) as something else needed to be done – stay tuned for that.

As part of the encouragement process for my mojo’s return, I worked on a little embroidery doing this

and this

I’m not pushing it……just taking each day as it comes. My mojo is still a little flighty but gradually staying more than going.

    Lovely ! Am currently sitting here and despite the fact I have only ten days to go before I NEED to finish a mini sewing project I think my sewing mojo has taken a hike for today! Your sewing is truly beautiful x

    Good progress. My mojo flies off for weeks sometimes and it used to bother me, but now I just let it do it’s own thing, and like a homing pigeon, it comes back in it’s own time. I am currently enjoying jigsaw puzzles instead of applique – but the sewing is in a handy place “just in case”.

      What a great way to cope with it Alison, I must be more patient like that, Hubby and I have started playing chess, we have set the board up on a table and we just make a move when we feel like stopping or mulling over the move. I’m very new to it so it’s a real brain teaser for me, I think about the pieces and I see them like a quilt putting the right pieces in the right place LOL I think this is helping me with my sewing as it clears my mind. Cheers Glenda

    Thanks for the laugh Meredithe, I will now know how to get my mojo back next time I lose it LLLOL Funny how we lose it without warning. Your work is so so lovely and beautiful to see, so I’m glad it’s coming back to you. Happy stitching Glenda

    Keep that mojo going!!!

  5. That’s great news! Remember a flighty mojo is sometimes down to fatigue, and make sure you’re well rested.

    Glad the mojo is making a welcome return! I was looking through some old photos on my laptop the other day, and came across one of me sitting in your chair, in fits of laughter because Miss Helen had told me that I must not sit there!!!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
