These are 6" blocks and go together quickly but after I completed 3 more, I just didn't feel like sewing anymore.
So, I'm thinking it's the room (I know, there I go thinking again!) Time to change it up a bit. I'm trying to figure out a way to spruce it up without any major expense. Because it's also my office area in there, I have to work around that. Also, my corner desk:
Is very permanent. It's braces are attached to the block wall with anchor bolts. (this is an older picture - that right corner of the room has changed and my skirted cutting table is now in the corner with the file cabinet having been moved to the quilting room) Maybe I have a picture...
My DH made me that ruler rack and I did a post awhile back about that. Anyway, that corner isn't quite as cluttered now. But... with the table in the corner, and because as you can see, I tend to pile stuff on it, I think I'd be better off with an enclosed cabinet/ cupboard that has shelving and doors underneath. Also, I'm wanting to clear the space where the plastic bins are. Next to them is the bookcase where I 'house' my larger fabric pieces and that will also
have to stay in the room. I think it's time for me to visit the thrift store and take a look around to see what I can reinvent! I did cut my table skirt this week also - cutting strips and didn't realize I was off the mat - now if I keep this table (and probably will) I need to make a new skirt, but I think instead of making it to go 'over' the table, I'll use sticky velcro and just attach it around the edge of the table. Yes, there is storage under that table but because of the fold out legs, not alot of space.
So, I guess I need to be asking for some inspiration to come my way and see if I can get my mojo back!
The rest of this week is a busy one for me. DH has doctor appointments both today and tomorrow to have some laser procedures done for his glaucoma - so 2 days in a row in Tucson (50 miles from here!) Then I have a potluck dinner to go to Thurs. evening that I had originally thought I'd have at my house - thank goodness someone else took it at theirs. Then Saturday is a tenative sew day with a friend. That will be great if that works out!
So, if I'm MIA for awhile - not to worry, I'm just out looking for my lost ambition.
