Thank you for all the response to my question on pressing seams. It seems that the majority of quilters press to the side. I'll have to try this again and see how it works for me, and put my dressmaking way of thinking on the back shelf.
Now to the title of this post.
Not my mind, although some may suggest that, that's what's been lost. No I seem to have lost that spark, my enthusiasm, my passion or as Darlene would say my joy. I have no idea where it went, one moment I was happily stitching and the next moment there just wasn't any desire. Yesterday I walked into the sewing room with great plans of stitching, I sat and did a few rows of machine quilting and just couldn't be bothered any longer, so left. It's not like I don't have plenty to do, I have a bag cut ready to stitch and I still need to make Miss Hollie's wallet, there's quilts to be quilted and new ones to start. Maybe it's the fact that each time I call Jenna she says Mum I wish you were home, maybe it's just the time of year, I have no idea. But if you find my Joy can you please send it back to me, I miss it.
