During the storm last week I should have sewn more.
Over the weekend I should have made progress on the Field Day Zipper.
When I have a spare moment, I should be working on the Teenaged Boy Black & Grey Donation Quilt.
I should be farther along sewing triangles to the leftover octagons.
These are words going through my head recently. Finally, I sat myself down and we talked.
I DO want to sew. Really. There is no reason I shouldn’t be sewing. I feel like I want to work on a project about which I am really excited. The problem is that I have a couple of other projects I also really want to get done, mostly to get the off my plate. I am not excited about them, so creative things kind of bog down.
I have to figure out what will get me out of this mood. Am I in a rut? Did I should badly on some projects that are not exciting me? Are projects not moving off my design wall fast enough? I don’t know.
My mom always says I shouldn’t ‘should’ on myself. I do a lot and I get stuff done. beating myself up about sewing is stupid. Yes, I want to finish projects, but clearly there is something else going on. Life is taking up space in my head and that is a thing that sometimes happens. Other stuff I enjoy is getting shoved aside for a lot of things I feel I ‘should’ do.
