Sewing Mojo, Where Are You?

What is it about this time of the year, that my sewing mojo seems to disappear? I have so much on my sewing table and in queue but I've been coming home and the last thing I want to do is head to the work space that once brought me so much joy.  


It hasn't helped that I've been fighting a sore throat, runny nose and sweats the past couple of weeks.  


And wearing a wrist splint for what is suspected to be a tear. 


But I really need to clear this project off the sewing table. 


And I have to get ready for sewing club starting up later this month. One more word to embroider and I really want to finish the sample "I ♡ to Read" bookmark with the word "sleep".  


I'd probably sleep through the night if the velcro on the wrist brace would stop sticking to the flannel sheets. Hmmm, maybe I need to sew a velcro-less wrist brace? Or find my sewing mojo...  

Happy Sewing!

  1. Just a quick comment about your brace - I had to wear one a couple of years ago for quite some time a panda the Velcro drove me nuts too! So I cut up an old cotton sock at the ankle, and used the leg part that was like a tube, pulling it over my brace at night - it stopped all the issues with the Velcro! You may need to use a man's sock, depending how bulky your brace is, or you could run a 'cover' up with jersey from an old t-shirt.

    Hope the mojo returns soon!

    1. I have another long day today, a nap would be so sweet. It'll have to wait until the weekend though.

The Eva Dress by Tessuti

This is my first project using Tessuti patterns and I'm even more impressed with how it turned out than I was when the patterns arrived...
