    Unhappy In a funk

    OK I cannot get motivated to start a new project, I am bored if I don't and just can't get started. It just may be this long long winter, I just want something easy and scrappy. I hate when this happens.

    me, too -- I also get frustrated with all my unfinished projects -- viewing the pictures on QB sometimes provides me with motivation -- there are several scrappy quilts I want to make, but just haven't gotten them started -- good luck!!-- spring is well underway here and the sun is shining -- hope spring is coming to you soon!!

    I can understand this winter being a problem...I live a bit south of you.

    Last night, I started taking apart a big box of scraps and sorting it into colors, etc. I am now trying to figure out how to work all of this into a quilt...I'm thinking postage stamp. I did this before and would make up big squares of the little squares. I make mine 2" and 8 to a row...so 8 wide X 8 long gives you a good size square. I just stack them up until I have enough.

    OK here is what you do. get all unfinished projects put the hardest on the botton and the easyest on top get your space ready to sew. put the pile of tops or projects behind you so you get discourgaged and put a small bowl of M&M at your sewing machine, Then put your big girl panties on and get to sewing. lol lol lol
    SMILE- it will make everyone wonder what you are up to.
    Stay strong and keep looking up.

    I was getting bored too, just finished a queen size quilt. GD needed some small things for a fundraiser so that got me going again. Made pencil cases, pie potholders, small tabletoppers just using some free 18 inch square block patterns. Made some stash scottie puppy dog patterns etc. As you can see that got me going again. Just love making things for gk's

    Do something that is small and gets done fast. That will get you back on track . Always works for me. Do the tissue holders. The are fast and so cute.

    Delta - I'm with you. MUST have M&M's handy. Of course, I have to mix the plain with the peanut (I'm a little OCD about it...)
