The Seamstress' Block?

According to Wikipedia, a writer's block where it is a condition, associated with writing as a profession, in which an author loses the ability to produce new work. The condition varies widely in intensity. It can be trivial, a temporary difficulty in dealing with the task in hand. At the other extreme, some "blocked" writers have been unable to work for years on end, and some have even abandoned their careers.

I suppose the same could be true for a seamstress. I haven't been in the sewing room for over a week partly because of the lack of inspiration to sew, partly because my schedule has been far to busy to include sewing into it, and partly because I don't have the thread that I need to sew a couple projects. So there you have it, and now know why I seemed to have abandoned my blog! Hopefully the "fog will lift" as I will need to sew as much as I can before fall gets here.

I get that way too, from time to time. It's nice to take a break from sewing, read something, watch a costume film or something like that and then come back to sewing with renewed inspiration. I am so *not* in a Civil War sewing mood right now so I'm taking a break and making regency things and a new 1914 afternoon dress. :) Then hopefully I'll be able to get the necessary CW stuff done before the end of August!

Oh my, I completely understand! I seem to have a Seamstress' block right now as well! I have quite a few lengths of fabric waiting to be sewn up and I seem to be dreading it.....
Which is unusual because normally I love to sew.
