Popping in

Hey there, just popping in to say hi. No video this week from me, but I will try to do it this next week. Tuesdays are a little busy so maybe Wed. By then I hope to have something to show you, too, even if it’s not finished.

I’ve been really fighting the ennui and pandemic depression stuff. Jennifer has kept me from going into the abyss completely, and has cheered me on as I struggle to work my way out and into a crafty place. Part of my self-imposed therapy has been spending money on some crafty-related stuff. Retail therapy does help a bit, and I am fortunate we are still both working and I am able to do that.

Judging by the lack of videos this week I am guessing I’m not the only one battling to regain their crafty mojo and ability to smile on camera.

Know that I love you and miss you guys, and I will be back this next week with something to show, even if it’s just the light I hung over my quilt frame this past week.

Everyone take care and see you next week!

  1. The struggle is real for sure. It is very challenging to stay upbeat and productive right now. I think my daughter being the age she is had been helpful for me. I feel the obligations to show her a strong example of getting through things. I think if she was older, I would be more prone to apathy for all things.

    Hang in there. We love and miss you. These are mentally exhausting trying times for which we have not real experience getting through.

    1. I have been making an effort this past week to come back to the Project room for at least a half hour each day to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING. This week I managed cutting some 1″ strips with my Accuquilt and then turning them into half inch bias tape with my new bias tape maker. I also let my sis pick my brain regarding quilting because she has decided she wants to quilt and of course is starting with a Queen size, as you do. πŸ˜‰ She has a small machine and I recommended some QAYG tutorials and said when she picks one I will do a similar project along with her in the same method so we can compare notes. Not that I need another project but who cares! πŸ™‚

  2. Hey, glad to hear from you. Yes, I couldn’t make a video because I just couldn’t. I have spurts of activity and then long periods of nothing. I have made some progress on things which I will share this week. Glad to hear from you.

    1. Some weeks I make a good show of pretending like all is fine. I didn’t have it in me this week, but that’s ok, I’m giving myself permission to feel that way while also trying to take steps to feel better. I didn’t want the week to go by without at least saying hi!
