Bump and Word Up Sewing Party

Did you all notice I didn't post anything for the Friday Night Sew-in?  The only progress I made was moving my sewing machine from my floor to the dinning room table.  I just didn't think that was exciting enough to post about.

I think it's been 3 weeks since I lasted worked on my quilt.   Hmmm....I ought to feel bad that I don't want to quilt but I don't.  I have have plenty of excuses;

The house is cold
I had to watch the grandkids
There was a really good movie on
I had to take my daughter shopping for Formal

Yep, good excuses but not the real reason.  I don't even have a good reason.  I'm in a sewing slump and loving it!! 

Do you want to see how Serena's hair turned out for Formal?

Let me tell you about that bump.  Serena didn't like it - but her girlfriend, Liz, who was fixing her hair insisted on it.  The third friend said she was worried because could see Serena didn't like it and she could see that Liz wasn't going to take it out.  I love it!  I think that after Serena got use to the idea, and had a ton of compliments she was okay with it.  

Now this Saturday (drum roll please)  is ....

Hosted by Kelly of Charming Chatter and Kris of Dandelion Quilts.  I already told Kelly I'm in. 
Now, should we take bets to see if I actually do any quilting? 

Hope to see you there - and I certainly hope you are not as bad as me with your sewing!


  1. You're allowed to have a short slump, but don't let it last too long! Have fun in the meantime.

  2. I do not see anything wrong with a "slump" for sewing--as long as you are still doing other things and not just sitting and feeling all blue!!!!
    I am planning to take some "discover" me time in February---but???????
    Hugs,di and miss gracie

  3. One of my colleagues has a saying...."If it's not fun, it's not fun." So, if you're not having fun sewing, you SHOULD take some time off and do other things you enjoy. It'll come back later when you're inspired and excited. Have fun with your other stuff. Your daughter's hair looks amazing!

  4. I think you should just go with the flow- we all seem to go through these phases periodically, but the itch to quilt always comes back.

  5. I think everyone has slumps like that. Your quilting mojo will come back:-)
    Your daughter's hair is goegeous! I just love that deep red, beautiful:-)
    See you at the party!
