    There is nothing wrong with you. Just pick a project and tell yourself 'This is what we do today'

    Pick one and keep going. I've been working on finishing up UFO's and it feels good when one is done. You can do it.

    Join the crowd. I have stuff being cut out on my matt now. I have a baby quilt that really has to be done this month, a QAYG that I want to learn before I get to the one thing I really get done.

    Oh, man. I was soooo happy to get a new mat. I just set it out and looked at it. I didn't use it for a couple weeks! lol I kept using the old one.

    Enjoy the newness, it seems to wear off quickly!

    I am feeling it too - I think winter does that to us - I am trying to find a new project - just can't make up my mind.

    I'm in the same boat. I started a Storm at Sea wall hanging and I really messed it up. Turned it into a table runner and was going to practice FMQ on it. Folded it up, tossed it on the table and made a purse instead!

    I have several projects lined up, in various stages of cutting, but can't seem to get myself going. I do enjoy looking at and feeling the fabric, tough.

    I do that too! Always have several projects going at the same time, and at various stages. Gotta keep the variety!

    I think it's because we all hurried and worked so hard getting everything done for Christmas and this is the "quiet after the storm" time. I finally forced myself to get my machine out today because I needed a new flannel nightie for an upcoming quilting retreat. Got it made and now I'm getting back in the mood for sewing/quilting. Nothing urgent to do right now so there's no pressure to do anything in particular. That makes it difficult to decide what to do.

    Ooo, flannel nightie.... I'm gonna go put one on, it's cold! Good idea, raptureready. I've got 20 year old UFOs. No shame, sometimes inspiration leaves before the project is done. I have a recent one I'm just creatively stuck on, two older samplers I make a block for whenever need to practice a block before doing my current project, and others that were ill-conceived or just not worth finishing (sloppy first projects). Plus, tops are a form of wealth.

    You my friend are perfectly normal, usually after the holidays are over we need to just kick back and not even think about things for a few weeks. I like to hit the after Christmas sales and replenish my stash, then about the first February I get back into the mood, Easter is coming you know :P

    Ha- I am with you- I got a new mat, too, but kept using the old one. Actually the new one smelled so badly like plastic that I put it in the other room until it got done smelling.

    This thread is like computer geeks getting together. They all speak the same language. We all know what you mean and there is nothing wrong with you. Some projects have to season well before they are ready to reveal themselves.

    I have been working on my UFOs since New Years Day and am making progress. But I really want to start a new one. Soon! I hate a stack of UFOs starring at me.

    I am in the same boat as you are. I bought a rotating(?) cutting mat before Christmas and then I got a Accqgo baby for Christmas and haven't used either of them yet.

    Good for you. Sometimes we need to get something just for us. Now pick a fabric and cut, cut and cut some more.

    I think we all go through that at one time or another. I had wanted to start another top but caught a cold instead..even picking up a cutter seems a chore right now :(
    Hopefully we will all get back in "the groove" :)
