The dilemma I am facing is that I really don't want to work on any of my WIPs. They just don't interest me. I don't know what my problem is. When my pregnancy took a turn towards misery I was in the middle of so many different projects and I was enjoying all of them. After 10 weeks of not working on them, or even thinking about them I just can't seem to want to work on them!
Just before I got sick I started working on a King Size Wonky Log Cabin Quilt for my bed. Last week I spent a couple of hours making more 26 inch blocks. I have 8 of 9 complete, and I started working on the 9th. Even though I added to my pile of blocks, I really didn't feel like it. I am seriously doubting my color choices, and the design. It is very modern in my opinion, and I am just not sure how I feel about it.
I am also part of of the Skill Builder Block of the Month and I am so far behind.
I still have one more "hand-pieced" block for April, then May, June and July's blocks! I began working on the second hand pieced block, the Diamond Carat, but still have a long ways to go. I am contemplating skipping it for now and moving on to try and catch up.
I really want to move on to new projects... Baby projects to be specific. BUT we still don't know if the baby is a girl or a boy and we won't know until Sept 5th. So I should take this opportunity and finish up what's already in progress. I have spent so many hours looking at fabric options for baby bedding and colors for the nursery. I think I have decided on two different color palettes for the nursery depending on whether the baby is a boy or a girl. Of course it could change next week, there are so many lovely colors and fabrics its hard to make a decision and stick with it.
Have you ever taken a break from sewing/quilting and then found it very difficult to start back up on your WIPs? Any tips for getting over this?
