Between dealing with family stuff & a moderate loss of MoJo, things are pretty quiet on the sewing & stitching here at HibiscusHQ.
I think one of the biggest issues with the MoJo is that I've got myself into a bit of a sewing muddle & I don't know how to make peace with it all.
Things to finish, things I want to start, things I keep putting on my WannaDo List... SALs that call my name... it all swirls around in my head!
The result of all this, is that I can't really think about it straight, so I just go do something else completely not related to my hobby.
Somehow I need to require myself to just focus on a really small number of projects, & get some progress happening with them for a few weeks... maybe that will help change this silly pattern I'm in?
On Friday night, mr17 played his last ever soccer game for the school.
He's in year12 & will be graduating soon... he's played every soccer season he was eligible to play for his school, which is 11 seasons... the last four seasons, his games have been on a Friday night... part of me is glad to be done with spending my winter nights out in the cold, wet & wind... but part of me will miss it.
I love this photo, simple as it is...his boots & shinpads... & the basket that I've taken to virtually every game, stolen by my Dad from Bunnings...it's been used variously to carry my thermos, the half-time oranges & after-game lollies for the team, first aid, any valuables belonging to the players, all sorts of stuff!
That basket needs a new job now!
(The back-story with the basket is that I am naughty & have a quartet of stolen shopping baskets... one each from Bunnings, Coles & Woolworths, and one on wheels from Spotlight. I don't do it intentionally, it just happens in the flurry of shopping)
Speaking of SALs... yes the NoFussStitchalong does look tempting... it's been looking tempting since I first saw it... aahhh, the quandary... I do have the book for the project, so during this coming week, I'll take a look through my tubs of fabrics & see if I can come to some sort of decision.
I'll only commit to it if I have everything here - everything - to make it... no new fabrics allowed.
So it might be a delayed start for me, or a no start at all.
We have a new desktop computer at home... something to get used to... I like the convenience of the laptop, but the desktop is my preferred. After a week of not getting emails, I need to check out why, & remedy that.
If you've come this far, I thank you for staying with me.
Wishing you a great week ahead & happy thread-y stuff going on for you!
