Dude, Where's My Mojo?

I have this pattern

Favorite Things Hip Skirts

and this pattern

Favorite Things Prairie Girl

and this pattern

Amy Butler Anna Tunic

all laid (layed? Katie?) out on my living room floor. Where they've lain (?) for the past 4 nights. With my pins, scissors, and assorted fabrics. Including these screaming-spring Amy butler prints:

As I sit in my green hand-me-down recliner and gaze upon these vast riches without a single iota of sewing lustfulness, I wonder...

Where hath the want-to gone?



  1. Good gracious those are adorable patterns and prints! You will get your mojo back, you've just been such a busy (sewing) bee lately.

    I'd set them aside and do something else you really enjoy for a little while, gardening, reading, bungee jumping...whatever floats your boat. Give those sewing skills time to recharge their engines. :)

  2. Girl - Our Mojo's must be slumming together ... gotta get them back pronto! I the skirt pattern and the other AB tunic ... just waiting ... for something ... someone ... ME to get off my @#%. Ahh...that feels better. Glad that I'm not the only one in a sewing funk. Wishing you happy stitches!

  3. Sometimes you just gotta give your mojo a break... But thanks for showing that AB tunic--how cute is that?

  4. You will get the mojo back. Give yourself a couple of days. All those patterns are so cute. I have been wanting the skirt pattern. I made up the Prarie Girl. It went together very nicely and I really like the finished product. Your fabrics will inspire you to come back to them soon. :)

  5. Dude- I don't know where it is, but find it soon--you are just too good at your craft!

    It's probably a good time to enjoy this beautiful spring for a while before you get sewing again though.

    I have the FT Cute Skirt pattern. Those garments will be lovely!

  6. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one. I've finally got some time to myself, yet I just don't seem to be able to start any of the projects that I had planned.

  7. With such wonderful will come back! Just wait for it!

  8. I am getting my mojo cooking just looking at your goodies. Better get to work before I scoop ya!

  9. It's too bad that skirt is turning out short--it's so cute! Can you add a border or something?

    I think "laid out" is right.

    I know for a person actually reclining on something, it's lie/lay/lain, and then for an object setting on something... lay/laid/laid (I had to look that one up).

    That tunic is really cute, too... I can't possibly get away with a waist tie; is there another way to wear it?


I love hearing from you, and thank you in advance for reading and commenting! &
