I'm still here!

I've been taking a little blog break. Not because I wanted, but when "life just happends", and my health is not very cooperative, there is not much sewing going on. 
The migraines and most of the neck pain are gone now, and it's feels so much better!
I know it's something I will have to deal with every now and then, but it's making me a bit sad when it "steals" so many hours and days of my time. 
For those of you who doesn't know me, I'm having a neck injury because of a whiplash accident years ago. This makes me unable to work as much as I should, and of course it means I'm not able to sew as much I would like to. But to be honest, sewing is my own sort of therapy to keep my motivation up, and it feels so good to be able to do something creative. I have several friends who are in the same situation like me, and find joy and therapy in sewing or other crafts. Sometimes people doesn't understand how I am able to sew, but I can't just sit down with my hands in my lap, can I? I would go crazy if that should happen! 

The other day I got to finish up a little project I've had in the making for sooo long. Just the zipper that needed to be attached, so it didn't take that long to finish it either. That means I've got a little finish for OPAM too this month :o)

It's a little toiletry purse from AnnAKa's pattern called "Stor og liten" (Big and small).

I haven't spent much time in my sewing room this month, but hopefully it will be some hours in there this weekend. I've got a few plans, so we'll see. I really hope my sewing mojo is coming back to me again soon. I hate to not have the energy or urge to sew. But that's life. I have to many projects in the making, so it's not easy to pick which one to work on, but I just have to make up my mind and just go ahead :o) 

Wish you all a great and creative weekend,

Hi Laila - Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I am sorry to hear about your health issues. I can relate to not having the 'mojo' from time to time. I do find that finishing even the smallest project inspires me. Your purse turned out lovely and I hope that you are able to create more wonderful things.

Tusen takk for koselig kommentar i bloggen min. Du lager utrolig mye fint, du også. Kanskje like greit at vi ikke holder på med hverandres materialer. Jeg frykter i hvert fall hva som ville skje om jeg også ble avhengig av stoff... ;-)
