    No, you are definitely not alone! I just posted not to long ago about this same thing. It was titled "How do you stay motivated" or something similar. I think it's just like any other "hobby", we don't feel like doing it ALL the time.
    My solution: quilt when you feel like it, when you will enjoy it, that is the point of a hobby! If I force myself to do something, it usually doesn't turn out very nice, because I'm in a hurry.
    On the other hand, sometimes it just takes me sewing a seam, and the next thing I know, hours have passed!
    Do what feels right....

    Aren't they cute? (avitar). I have no idea where or when I found it. LOL I'm real good at collecting cute pics I find on the net. I came on here a few times but felt bad cuz I wasn't sewing. Do I belong even when I'm not sewing..... Oh I hate these moods I get into.....

    Sure! That is when I do my other crafts for a while until I get motivated to sew again. ps) Welcome back, I wondered where you were.

    Oh yeah, I didn't go into my sewing room for most of 2 years; then one day I looked around and everything else seemed to be in the way of me getting in there and doing something.

    It happens to me when I am supposed to be working on something I NEED to get done, not what I want to get done.
    Welcome back, we missed you.
    And sewing or not, you belong here. Your friends are here!
