Or maybe it is the fact that I seem to be doing mending and alterations for other peeps while my own pile is getting out of hand.
I need a project that is going to get my creative juices flowing again. I think it is time to ignore my own mending pile, pour a glass of wine and look through my pattern stash for some inspiration.
