    Your body and mind is telling you to take a break. Once everything settles down you will be able to get things done.

    Setting a timeline may keep you from wanting to quilt. Just get into a routine with your job, the kiddo's in School and let nature take its course. The mood and desire will return. The amt of time may vary from one to another. I have been in your shoes for as long as 9-10 months before. That is okay. It always returns with a vengeance. LOL Relax. Reading on here & looking at the pics, does inspire me when I am in a slump.

    Oh, fabric is ALWAYS in season!
    I think one downside/upside about working at a thrift store and sorting through all the clothes, I get my fill of playing/touching fabric everyday. It's kind of nice though that even while I'm at work, I still get to "play" with fabric!
