I was looking at my number of posts from previous years and noticed I am woefully behind the last few years where I ended up having around 90 per year. This year, to date, I have about 55. There is no flipping way I can make up 40 posts prior to the start of 2017.
So, being the reflecter (over-analyzer) I am, I attempted to pick apart why....
I've been trying to complete more projects for people other than ME. Tough to do when you are a rabid seamstress, but probably needed as I don't remember very much about the joy of completing some of the garments I pull out of my closet--that may be the signal that I have a problem???
Anyway, I ordered a few patterns to try and spur me on for the remainder of fall and beginning of winter. I think I made some wise choices. Here is a photo:
So of course I had to order three StyleArc patterns. One is the Nell Cape--which I am super excited to make. The Pleated Pia top is happily made from a knit and the Harlow top is so on-trend. All three of these will be on my sewing table soon!
I also order the Morgan boyfriend jeans from Closet Case Files--I have NEVER used one of her patterns but I loved the styling of these so much and they are a button fly--something I haven't tried yet but am inspired to do so!
Next is that uber cute Delia top from Angela Wolf. Dang, another adorable top with those awesome exposed shoulders/arms. I have been doing extra push-ups in preparation to wear this!
Lastly, I purchased a pattern from Deer and Doe. It is the Aubergine dress and it has the cutest horizontal pleats across the bodice. I've never used a Deer and Doe pattern and also excited to create this one as well.
So, just wondering what you do when you feel like you've lost your sewing momentum? Do you order new patterns? Clean your sewing room? Stop for awhile? Please, do tell!
Thanks always for your comments and reading!
