Quilting Mojo

I have lost my quilting mojo. I don't think it is gone forever, just taking a well-deserved break. In the past month:

I have hung 17 quilts at the Hosmer Gallery and had a fantastic opening reception. Quilters are a wonderfully supportive group of people!

Finished piecing together the maple leaf quilt, although this photo was taken before the piecing was completed.maple leaf quilt in progressWrote my essay for the Jacob's Ladder: New Quilts From an Old Favorite book. Have I even mentioned that Upstairs Downstairs is a finalist in the competition sponsored by the National Quilt Museum?

Continued to longarm for my clients.

And then I could not think about quilting. So while my mojo has been on hiatus these last 2 weeks I have:

Read a few books.

Cleaned out my pantry.

Cleaned up my sewing space downstairs. I have not even thought about the quilting room upstairs. That is way too daunting.

Played Just Dance 4. I told my parents that all of those years of dance lessons are paying off as I am now able to beat their granddaughter at Just Dance.

And a couple of days ago I did what I always do when I need to get my head back into quilting. I just start sewing fabric together. We will see if this goes anywhere. If not, it will spark something exciting, I'm sure.
