Last month, while Hubby and I were away for the weekend, I started what was supposed to be a quick stitch. Basically, it was a fill-in project because I was certain to finish the current stitch before we got home.
The problem? I’m just not excited about it. I wasn’t overly excited when I began, but thought, “It won’t take long and might make a nice gift for someone.” It’s a silhouette of squirrels inside a heart (scherenschnitte style); I chose a pretty auburn-colored thread, rather than black, to make it nice for autumn. That weekend, I got about 1/3 finished and haven’t really worked on it since. Now I’m ready to toss it in the bin. There are just so many other projects that I really, really want to do! Am I making sense?
Anyway, I really feel like I’ve lost my stitching mojo and the only way to get it back is to either finish this design or toss it & find a small something that I’m really interested in finishing. The nearly instant gratification of a cute, finished stitchy project, should get me excited about stitching again, right?
Any advice for handling not-so-exciting projects or getting back the stitchy mojo?
