    Just make yourself sew for a little while. When I am in a slump I set my timer and tell myself I only have to sew for X amount of time. When the timer goes off I want to keep sewing. I guess it is a mental thing I know I'm only going to have to sew for a short time. And sometime when the timer goes off I quit for this time.

    Hello Tonsau7, welcome back to quilting, I know it hard to get started again, because I have just gotten back in myself, but I know how much I missed it so come on and lets make something together. I know that you can make something really pretty and thats easy to start back with. Hope you can get back in to quilt really soon. It helps if you have someone to quilt with. Take care and have a great day.

    Welcome back to sewing. I know we all have to get motivated sometimes.

    Taking a walk thru a fabric store will get you going...that's all it takes for me.

    Welcome! I guess no one can motivate me if I don't really want to do something, but you'll find so much inspiration here! It's amazing how all the sharing here gets me going!

    I've been in those slumps myself at times...I think we all get them....maybe find a cute pattern for a table runner or something small you want to make...it makes for a quick feel of satisfaction....also PM me, and I'll send you some 'scraps' or goodies to get you going again! Happy sewing!!!

    welcome tonsau7....just keep reading and looking at all the beautiful pictures and you will find you don't have enough time in a day to do all the things you want to do....I find myself back and forth all day long between this board and actual sewing/quilting.

    Welcome Tonsau7 - this board is great, as you can already tell. I find so many helpful hints and ideas for future quilts. I have to remind myself I am not that rich and CANNOT do everything I see :)

    This is a nice place to be when you are struggling - absolutely the best people around!

    Dear Tansau 7..............I have found that the sewing /quilting adventure requires me to concentrate in such a way that Stress, Anxiety, Worry and a bunch of other "no nos" goes away for a time. Just take one step at a time and the best of "time" will be yours...

    Doug say's he is doing good. Unfortunately he is in Ohio and I am in Arkansas. I wish I could be there with him to help him through this. Thanks for asking.
