You Have Entered a 'No Sew Zone'

I wish I had lots of things to show you.....I wish I had anything to show you, but I don't.  It just isn't happenin' here.

I did manage to finish my corduroy skirt that I talked about in an earlier post.  I also managed to wear it twice before Spring arrived here in full force.  I am also almost done with S4182 that I am making in black/white seersucker.  I just have to do the buttonhole and sew the facings down.....but I'm not crazy about this long sleeve version as I was about the short sleeved one. I am apathetic about finishing it.

I think I am at a crossroads here with my sewing.  I have not been happy with the finished items, I have not been happy with my fabric choices (I live in a small is the choice) and I just don't seem to have the time lately to put into an item.  I see so many pretty things in the stores that I can have now and frankly, they fit better.

I  was thinking of making a dress for our anniversary dinner next month, but I saw a beautiful one in Belks that is going on sale this week for $43.00.  I like the fabric much better than any I have on hand or have seen online.  And it would only take a minute to pop over there and try it on.

I am in a slump. Or have lost my 'mojo' if I ever did have it.  Sewing at this moment just doesn't excite me.  Maybe it's 'spring fever'. Who knows?
