BORED!

SO BORED!!!

I haven't felt like stitching a thing this week. Spring Queen is beige, I can't figure out what purple I want for Celtic Spring, there's too much black in Something Wicked, Why Hoard Gold? has Marlitt threads, the blue and grey from How Does Your Garden Grow (In The Dark)? look the same, Autumn Winds is over 1, etc etc!

So I dragged out my charts and stared at them all. Then I threw them all back in the drawer.

So I thought I'd start something new (again). But nothing I had kitted appealed to me. I don't want to start Celtic Autumn since I haven't finished Spring. I don't want to start another Mirabilia. I really don't want to start a Teresa Wenztler. I don't have any small pieces of leftover fabric suitable for a small. I don't want to cut into any of my larger pieces of fabric in case I find a larger design that might fit onto them.

Maybe I'll go to the store and kit something else up and not start that either.

Boy do understand how you feel! I don't have a whole lot of stitching time these days but when I do manage to find some time, nothing seems interesting enough to stitch on. I hate that feeling.

Deborah said...

Don't yah just hate it when this happens? I do.

Lesleyanne said...

So sorry. Hope you manage to find something that get your stitching again.

Hillery said...

Oh my. What extremely large WIP's you have. I would be a little overwhelmed myself and would just have to go out and buy myself some more stuff. TeeHee.

That is just too funny! Maybe something small will get that mojo working again.

Beth said...

Go for it! Any excuse to increase your stash supply!

Lynn said...

I'd go for a new small stitch. Sometimes those BAPs get the best of us.

Awwwh, Blu... I'm sorry to hear that nothing sounds good to stitch. Been there.... sucks big time! Did you go to the store? ;)

Topcho said...

Nyaah, it happens sometimes... but I don't think you should force yourslef working on a project if you don't feel like it - it;s a hobby for pleasure after all, right? So... a perfect excuse to go shopping, lol! XD

I know the feeling and hope you've decided on something nice to stitch

Ziggyeor said...

Find a cute bookmark pattern and then stitch one for Stitching 4 Literacy! :)

TammyK said...

Sounds like you have the stitching blues Blu :) Know the feeling, have sort of been in a slump this week myself. Hope you found something intriguing at the store.

Buy a magazine and stitch the cover kit, give it away if you don't like it!

Justflo said...

Cheer up your Mojo will return soon. I'd pick something small to get a thrill when it was quickly finished.

Dima said...

When this happened to me i picked up a new hobby :P a co-worker is teaching me how to crochet and now when i don't feel like stitching i make amigurumis

Meari said...

So what did you decide? lol

♥ Nia said...

oh my! what a dilemma.. I've been there :p I know how you feel.
Sometimes the best you can do is take a day or two to relax and soon your mojo will be back with all power :D

Michelle said...

I also know the feeling - I think it happens to all of us. A new start might be a good idea :) Hope your stitching mojo returns soon!

lol ... but i am only "lol'ing" because i have been there for a while! i felt like you described my feelings completely

i bought some stash and had a small finish that gave me a bit of mojo to try and finish "ruby" and so far mojo is slowly coming back ... so a new start or some stash shopping is a great idea =D
