Quilting Mojo

I hear a lot of people say that their quilting 'mojo' is gone, and that they need something to restart it.  That 'something' could be as simple as a new fabric purchase, a new quilt magazine or book, or maybe something inspiring that we see in our everyday lives.  For me, all it took was today's guild meeting!

Over the past few weeks, for reasons out of my control, my mojo has been diminishing, reaching a low last week.  And it hasn't helped that my longarm quilting is at a standstill as I wait for a new cable.  Longarm quilting is one of my respites from everyday worries.

So, thank goodness for the guild meeting!  I picked up a few pieces of fabric, a few magazines, chatted with others, and got some good laughs from our speaker, Joe Cunningham (www.joethequilter.com).
And to top it off, I won another basket, this one full of landscape fabric, and a pretty panel to quilt up! 
Wonderful to win, as it certainly made my day!

It's amazing how one thing can help the mojo return.  So if you're feeling uninspired, don't give up!  Your mojo will return, it just needs a little spark to get it going.  And that spark could be anything.

Now, if that cable would just get here....

Happy Quilting!

  1. It is so frustrating when that mojo disappears! To find it again, check out pinterest or go hopping through blogs...you can even just google up some inspiring pictures. So many avenues to use to seek out that hidden mojo! So glad yours returned and hope that cable get there today!!!
