Missing mojo has been found!

Have you seen my mojo?

I can’t believe that it has been so long since I have blogged.  Life has happened, been in a bit of a funk, had a health concern, and I couldn’t get into a groove.  I haven’t completed a quilt top since June!   The last thing I completed were the paper piecing blocks from the class I took at the MN Quilt Show.

Usually I am very productive during the summer.  I am a teacher and have plenty of time to sleep in, take naps, quilt, catch up on tv series, and walk the dog during June, July, and August.  This summer was different from the beginning.  My husband and I were able to go on a trip of a lifetime to Europe during late June and most of July.  My college friend, Paul, has lived in Prague for years and we finally got on a plane to visit and explore.

Then there was a girls’ weekend with college roommates, a weekend at a campground, county fair season, and school started.   Somehow, weeks became months and November turned into December.

I usually have time to quilt on the weekends, but haven’t been feeling that well, been really tired.  My hands were very swollen, and I struggled with cutting and sewing.  I am a new medication that is helping.

I’ve slowly been starting small projects.  What have I been working on?

  • The closest quilt finish I have is a baby quilt.  I still need to sew the borders on.
  • Pillowcases to donate to a children’s hospital.
  • A few mug rugs to decorate my desk for the start of school
  • I am thinking starting a new project might just be what I need inspire me to sew/quilt! Like I don’t have a long list of WIPS!

Hopefully, this girl has got her groove back.  Blog posts to come!

About My Pieced Life

I am in love with all things quilting. My sewing room has many works-in-progress and a large stash of fabric. I have big plans and lots of ideas of creations I would like to make. My wonderful husband supports my obsession and Carson, my Australian terrier, keeps me company while I sew.
