    I can't seem to get any enthusiam for quilting. This is the sad state of my sewing area. There are fabrics for six quilts in these pictures. The fabric on the chair was all just washed and dried. It is for the Piecemaker's 2003 Calendar Quilt.

    Have some friends come over, bring their irons and have an ironing party! Have lots of chocolate, cookies, etc. You'll feel better when that is done.

    OK, kiddo. Get yourself motivated... straighten up the area, then get the iron out. First things first....a little wine, a little music. You'll have it ready for your next project in a jiff!!! :thumbup: :wink: :lol:

    you are not suffering a lack of enthusiasm. you are simply "between projects". there's a subconscious process going on ... your brain is gathering, sorting, and cooking up some creative juice. ;-)

    pick up one piece of fabric; fold it neatly for storage. if that doesn't trigger the instinct to grab and fold the rest, then just wait to fold another one tomorrow. one a day is better than none a day.

    who cares whether the studio gets straightened first or the urge to quilt again comes first? either way you're doing something that will make you feel good. ;-)

    Oh geeze I can so relate to your dilema! I am up to my eyeballs in mittens and have postponed quilting for a bit. I do love to iron so it is too bad we don't live closer, I'd do the ironing in a split second!!! I am not organized by nature I really have to work at it. And it is such a struggle for me to know where everything is. The other day my husband said he hadn't seen my Ginger snips he bought me years ago and went over to my tiny snap purse and pulled out 2 pair he had given me. He nearly passed out. I was thrilled to know where they were, it made me feel so good. Really and truely he was shocked to pieces I went right to them. :lol:

    Chin up you'll get through it just relax! :-D
