I am here to confess that I have been in severe funk lately.
Nothing inspires me.
The sight of my sewing room makes me feel vaguel nauseated.
Before, seeing pictures of people having a grand ole time at the Sewing Summit would have left me green with envy. But all I feel is a vague sense of, "Well isn't that nice for them."
In an effort to just, y'know, muscle through it, I decided today was going to be the day I finished my embroidery for Celebrate Color. I sat on the couch and stitched away, and at last it was done! The only thing was, I changed my mind about fifteen times as to what this was going to end up being. In the end I decided that I wanted it to stay a hoop, but with some improv piecing surrounding it.
Maybe it's just this funk, but I am not in love with the result. I can't even say why. It's just...meh.
I do like the embroidery, though. And I really enjoyed the process of working on this. It was my first time working with some different stitches, and it was nice to sort of broaden my horizons in that area.
One thing I know for sure: I should have gone with a grey background fabric. I am not a brown person but I guess I had it in my head that if there's no brown, it can't be fallish. Wrong. Wrong, wrong, WRONG. Gray is just me. Period. Regardless of season. I should have stuck to my guns but I let online peer pressure sway me. Never again.
Anyway, I've got my fingers crossed that this malaise leaves me soon, otherwise...(cue doomsday music)
