Grey and unproductive


I am feeling very unproductive. I had a long list of things I wanted to do today and I haven’t done any of them. I have instead been curled up under a quilt reading a book. The last week has seen the first real cold spell of the year. I have taken to wearing socks in the house. It’s not just cold, but cold and rainy, with a grey, grey sky. It’s hard to feel motivated when the weather is like this. All I want to do is curl up somewhere warm, sleep and eat chocolate.

In a fit of madness I decided that the way to get motivated to sew was to get all my blocks out of the cupboard and have them sitting around my sewing room. It means I have a very messy sewing room but it seems to be working. I have finished a quilt top, and am part way through finishing another. Plus I have ideas galore for what I can do with the rest of them. Every time I am in the room and look at the piles I start thinking about which ones go with each other and new ideas for putting them together.
