Looking for my sewing mojo!

New year, with lots of new possibilities ... Yeah right! I'm really struggling to find my sewing mojo. Even if my longarm machine is up, I just don't feel like sewing or quilting at all. The stuff to organize is my sewing room is too overwhelming, and I have lost the overview I once had. I have got lot of my things back in place, but I can't seem to find the way to rearrange all of my stash and things to make it work easy. I just don't know where to start...

I've been occupied with a lot of migraines for a long time, and I haven't had the energy to do much sewing either. Tonight I decided to give myself a kick in the butt and cut some large squares and made some half square triangles to make a scrap quilt, just to get started. I managed to make a few, and I will stick with this till I have a finished quilt. Fingers crossed I can do it :o)
I have so many gorgeous japanese fabrics just waiting to be used in something, and a scrap quilt is never wrong!

I have been knitting, as you know... And I managed to finish a few projects for Christmas. This is some of the socks I have been making through the last monts: 

I have started so many projects, but when they get difficult I start on something new. Those who knows me, knows that's just me in a nutshell. This is a pair of mittens I am working on:

I hope to get time to make blog posts more often, since I really miss it! I guess the easy ways to share on Facebook and Instagram makes me think it's almost wasted to write the blog posts, but I like to use my blog as a sort of diary, so I will continue to write.

Wish you all a great new and creative week!
Hugs,
Laila

I miss your blog posts! I do love your mittens. Hope you do get your mojo back, sometimes I do think we all need a break.

Så bra at du er i gong! Eg gleder meg til å sjå scrapen din. Og eg kjenner godt problematikken, korleis organisere, korleis finne plass osb. Lukke til! (Men stress er vel ikkje bra for migrenen, så ta det roleg..)

Ikke noe problem med litt sytørke når den brukes til så mye fint strikkearbeid.
