Come out, come out wherever you are!  Come on, come to mummy, you know you want to!  Come on, there's a good little mojo...

Ugh, I have totally lost my mojo for now.  I have no idea what happened to it after SS, but I think it may have hurled itself over the edge of a canyon or something.  Possibly drowned in a cocktail glass, but then it didn't get that much chance at that...   It didn't go so far that it couldn't shout some instructions in quilt shops when I was on the mad road trip, and in fact it had seemed to be creeping into my thoughts on the flight home, as I fantasised about a bag I was going to make from some of the chevron laminate I'd picked up, but since then?  Nada.

For the first week on the Sunday and during the evenings I was putting everything away, so now I have a lovely, tidy sewing area.  Last Friday evening I was trying to finish catching up on all the blogs from when I was away when the incident happened.  On Saturday I slept til late, then spent the afternoon and up to 11:30 pm with my gran.  On Sunday I was rudely awoken earlier than planned, and when I dozed off again ended up getting up rather later than planned, and still had to write my shopping list, do my shopping, unpack my Christmas pressie that both my grandmothers and I contributed to (which I took advantage of  getting during a good deal now while I saw it), sorting out some templates for Susan's block and finishing that blog catch up.  Monday night saw me having a sudden urge to tidy a good 3 shelves in my kitchen, washing up an enormous amount of storage containers to be refilled with different things entirely, and then having my dinner late (rather spawned by the need to put things away that were evicted by the Christmas pressie).  Tuesday saw me seized with the desire to start refilling the previously washed containers again and start putting them away, and to slouch in front of the PC until I decided to head to bed early.  Wednesday saw me still feeling exhausted and disinclined to sew, even after I'd pawed over the following for my various bee blocks:





My mum and dad are up this weekend, so I'll only have Sunday for sewing, and I *need* to get on a couple of things, so if you happen to see my mojo wandering by, please pack it up and send it home.

In the meantime I might be playing with this:


Or then again, I may be sleeping...

  1. If I see it do you want me to give your mojo a stern talking to and advise it not to go wandering off like that again?

  2. That is a very pretty looking machine what is it? I think maybe you need to settle and then the sewing will be back. Maybe focus on Christmas baking until you want to sew. Or movie watching. Or a book.

  6. Your Mojo is hanging out with My Mojo and Annabellas. I think it's gone on a Mojo holiday and I'm sorry but my Mojo is probably the ring leader...

  7. Don't you hate it when your mojo wants to play hide and seek. At least you have a nice tidy sewing room for when it comes back.

  8. Do you not remember that we all lost our mojos after the retreat too? It seems to be a retreat/summit decease. Only time will heal it.

  12. Bad, mojo! Bad!
    Get back here!
    (although if anyone ever had some sewing mojo, it was you...you whip things up like nobody's business!!)
    I hope it gets back here soon!

  13. Yep, I'm afraid the mojo is taking a retreat after SS overload! But it'll be back before you know it! After retreat and festival all I could do was stroke fabric! Therapy! Cake!

  16. Your mojo is lying dormant but it is not extinct. It will return on Wednesday. I have it on good authority.

  17. Oh I know where your mojo has gone...it's run off with mine. So if you find yours, will you please send mine back too!

  19. Don't worry, Katie! It happens to all of us. It's a horrible feeling - you have been burning the candle at both ends. I find that doing something different ( or just do nothing - have a rest)for a couple of weeks usually does the trick! If it isn't a pleasure at the moment, then it is a chore...and who needs more chores? The great thing is that when your mojo returns, there is nothing better!
    Take care

  20. All this 'putting stuff away' sounds like nesting: not pregnant are you?

  21. I think your mojo may have hopped on the wrong plane and arrived here. I'd send it back but it's been quite helpful this week.

  22. Probably drowned. After all mojo (moho) in Spanish comes from the reflexive verb mojar (moharr) meaning to get wet :)
