January is a very long month.
I know, it doesn't have any more days than usual,
because it is colder and darker
than other months here in Colorado,
or it follows the wonderful joyful month of December
it just seems, for me, to go on and on.
Sometimes I feel like this,
on the go,
ready to do anything
other times, I'm like this.
My motivation can evaporate
from day to day or even
moment to moment.
Coming up with a routine can be helpful, but
when I hit a time when I'm not motivated
it can take a lot of willpower
to get back on track.
So, what have I been doing?
In order to get some sewing and quilting
done, I've been working on projects in very
choosing to work on only things
that bring me happiness,
I recently bought a fun pattern from
Cluck, Cluck, Sew.
I needed something that I could
work on in brief periods of time,
use some leftover 2.5" strips,
and would make a fun donation quilt.
has recently been using a lot of stash
making donation quilts.
Her motivation sparked a bit of motivation in me,
as has Cheryl at So Many Quilts, So Little Time, to focus
on just doing some light sewing, working on
projects that might bring pleasure to someone else.
It got me thinking about all that
fabric I've collected
that is just waiting for something to happen.
So, I'm S L OW L Y working on the pattern
taking my time,
sometimes circling right or
sometimes circling left
moving in whatever
direction brings me the greatest joy.
Have you ever experienced this fluctuation?
Until Next Time-
