Is anyone else --

Is anyone else as bored as I am lately?

Surely nothing exciting to report from the LA Quilter household!

I wouldn't say I'm bored...more like unmotivated. :0(

Typical (for me) when the weather gets cold and it always dark and grey out.

Quilt Hollow said...

Never a dull moment here.

Tamera said...

I wouldn't say bored...more restless...so many things to work on, I'm having trouble focusing.

I'm SO excited for Christmas.

Monica said...

Yes...completely! I have zero drive to do anything quilty. Maybe that'll change now that my Studio finally arrived...at 7 PM!

I desperately need a fun infusion. Any ideas?

pdudgeon said...

nope, i'm still quilting. will be working on borders tomorrow, and cutting up more fabric for my next quilt.

Julie @ Jaybird Quilts said...

i wish i could say i was bored... but not so much

Judy Laquidara said...

Feeling it too. Not unhappy but not really happy either. Nothing is wrong but things don't seem right. Even my chickens have almost stopped laying! :)

Vicky said...

I guess it's what Infinity Quilter said -- the weather is cooler and that means our ten minutes of winter is around the corner. Nope, Monica, I'm all out of fun here! Judy, if the chickens are feeling it, too, then I don't feel so badly! LOL

Alisa said...

Yes!! I just looked at my family and said "I've lost my mojo." Well, I had better get it back or I think I'll have a mutiny on my hands.

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with my UFOs, yet started two new quilts....and don't call me Shirley! (in honor of Leslie Nielsen)

I'm just having trouble with the winter. It gets dark here at 5 p.m. and I can't drive after dark. I'm feeling sleepy and ready for bed by 7 p.m. cause it feels like midnight. I force myself to stay awake but this early darkness and being so cold outside is really doing a number on me.

Get out your thimbles and stitch some up or fire up your sewing machine and you'll not be so bored.
Make up some QOV blocks or pillowcases to donate to motivate you. Make a small project, tablerunner, wallhanging, try a new block or make a block of the month just one month. Grab a good book. Go to the quilt shop and hang out. Get out of the house and do something anything.

Judy said...

Push some buttons! That always makes me happy -- I think you'd like it too!

Julie in the Barn said...

Not bored exactly...but I'm tired of working on UFOs and Xmas presents. I'm itching to start something new but won't let myself until my have-to-do list is finished. The cold and dark don't help my enthusiasm. I spend an awful lot of time not really doing much.

I'm getting my usual early December feeling, all the sewing is frantic because its for gifts needed shortly, not relaxing or even very creative. And I have so much to do to get ready for the holiday (am I the only house without a tree?) after being gone for the last 2 weekends that I can't sleep for the list in my head!

jillquilts said...

I wouldn't say bored as much as sleepy. I guess the early darkness and shortened days just make me want to hibernate!

Laura said...

Since I live in the hot Calif. Central Valley, the cooler weather has actually re-energized me. I've been sewing more than ever. Of course, Christmas looming is a big motivator, too. ;-) I really enjoy your posts, Vicky, and they don't have to be about exciting stuff. You write well and have a great sense of humor!

Miss Jean said...

Amen!

Vicky said...

Aw, shucks, Laura. Thanks! I really am surprised that anyone bothers to read my drivel.

Mimi said...

I think it is the holiday blues.

Deb said...

I can relate - I'm not sure what's causing it either! I feel like you, bored, unmotivated, I'm not sure what it is. I haven't even really been motivated to quilt! Which I don't understand because I love quilting and it helps with my depression issues. I'm wondering if it's the time of year, season or holiday.....

Can't Penny entertain you well? I'll be willing to send Limo over to keep you two busy!!
