Do you ever,ever feel like you are in a rut? For some reason, I have been having trouble getting motivated with my sewing the last few months. I did manage to get geared up for my retreat a few weeks ago, but none of my projects were really speaking to me. That has never happened before. I thought about it yesterday and decided that this year I have been focusing too much on trying to finish up all of those UFO's that are cluttering up my sewing room. Now finishing them is not a bad thing, but I have been making myself finish them, it hasn't been something that I have really wanted to do. I decided that I needed to take a break and work on some fun projects and some smaller items. That is when I found a year of small projects on my friend Becky's blog. I think this will be the perfect thing to get my sewing juices flowing again. The first project is an ironing board cover, now you may not think that is the most exciting project in the world, but I am actually looking forward to it. I have found a pattern and have purchased all of the necessary items, been through my stash and found the perfect fabric, and lets face it most of us could probably use a new ironing board cover. It is my project for tonight after dinner. Wish me luck!
