    Hope you got the stitching worked out on the batik quilt! Good luck on your goals.

  2. Hi Roseanne, good luck with your light blue baby quilt. I hope that you can figure out a solution. I can understand being too distracted with everything to be quilting – I’m just so pooped from running around getting ready for the holidays. It never seems to end 🙂 Remember that a to-do list is generally more like a wish list than a commitment and you need to enjoy it. Take care of yourself.

    Roseanne, I certainly can understand losing the sewing mojo! It’s been a problem for me this week as well. Don’t be too hard on yourself and wait until you are up to the task!

    I’m a little late to the party. It’s been so long since I’ve consistently had anything to share I got a little out of my groove. I’m also very far behind on my reading but hope to catch up soon. The pink herringbone is really nice, I like that. There’s plenty of sewing mojo around here to send your way. Thank you for the linky party.

    Cookies! Yum! That would be a nice break from quilting. Stay-at-home-round-robin, now that sounds interesting! Love the fabrics you are using in your pinwheels. I hope your mojo sticks around long enough to finish your OMG!

  6. Hi Roseanne. You did have some pretty successes last week and I’m sure this week’s list is doable! 😉. I think a lot of us are suffering from dwindling sewjo right now. It’s just been a loooong year with too much going on and our internal batteries do run down. The holidays and some on line visits will help recharge the batteries (and cookies and fudge and smiling, happy faces). 😄

    Hi,
    The pinwheel and patches quilt will be beautiful when done. I
    love the pink herringbone runner…so pretty. Have a great day!

    Well, I’m right with you (if not ahead of you) on the loss of the sewing mojo. But it sounds to me a lot like you have been doing pretty well. Putting a project in time-out sounds good. Mostly, I’ve put myself in time out! Take care and enjoy each day to the max doing something fun…sewing or not.

  9. Fudge sounds like a really good idea! Mmmmm. Sorry your had troubles with the stitching. So very frustrating.

  10. I sure do understand that the “holidays” derail us. I hope your sewjo returns and that the quilt that is out of time out behaves….for whatever reason. Good luck with feeling the calm as you can going through this new normal hectic holiday season!

  11. I think we’re all starting to lose a little of our sewing mojo right now and that is a good thing! I would spend my entire life in my sewing room if things like Christmas (oh, okay, household chores, eating and sleeping too) didn’t draw me away! Do you find the Bloc-loc ruler worth it? In an effort to keep down on gadgets (clutter?) in my sewing room, I get pretty selective about what I buy in that department–probably too selective because maybe I could be making life easier!

    Isn’t it nice to see all those red check marks on your weekly list! The last one really cracks me up, LOL I am sure you will be able to add more check marks to this week’s list;)

  13. Take a little break, make some cookies! Your mojo will come back and you’ll get everything done. Hope you get those skipped stitches figured out. You’ve had a good week, despite the dip in mojo!

  14. Definitely put those cookies on your list, Roseanne! I’m thinking some need to be baked here, too. Good luck with your other to-dos – you can do it!

  15. I definitely got a chuckle out of your quilting time-out! I definitely don’t have any advice for you on that front, but I hope you can figure out a less stressful solution. I agree with the other commenters. Do what you can to relax and enjoy the holiday season.

    I understand losing your sewing mojo during the holidays. Sometimes it’s good to take a break and then be really joyful to return in January. I sure hope that Baby Batik quilt will work out. It’s so pretty! Hugs and stay safe!

  17. It does get to be a bit much to keep up with. All the stitching with the wrapping, baking and visiting. Though I’d guess that the visiting is much reduced this year for many. Hope the baby batik has learned it’s lesson in time out and it’s now a dream to work with. Happy stitching this week.

  18. Hi Roseanne,
    I won’t tell Sue, but I certainly understand that sewing is likely to take a back seat with the holidays approaching!!!
    Hopefully, those skipped stitches will be a thing of the past!
    Thanks for hosting “To Do!”
    Happy Quilting! 🙂
