WARNING - Images may disturb some quilters.......

It is quite disgusting really........ My sewing room I mean........

It seems that ever since the Craft Show that I have lacked motivation and energy to do anything really and my sewing room is testament to that.......

Somewhere on the shelves or under the piles is my MOJO which has been hiding.


I really do hope to find it over the weekend when hopefully I can get motivated enough to tidy up.....




I am sorry if my mess offends anyone - I really shouldn't be "airing" it in public but having a lost MOJO has pushed me into shaming myself - maybe that will work.........

If it helps, my sewing room looks worse... And my mojo is lost too! I hope I'll find it somewhere soon:-)
Good luck finding yours!

Joy said...

Awww Fee ... don't fret darling one ... I know your mojo will come back soon :o). If it makes you feel any better though, my sewing room makes yours look so tidy right now he he he.
Love n hugs,
Joy :o)

Dawn said...

If you could see into my room you might feel better. Not only is there sewing "stuff" strewn all over the place, I have files, folders and paperwork in there as well. I know where my mojo is I just can't reach it! Enjoy the break, it will surely be over soon.

Maybe our Mojo's are off holidaying somewhere as mine is missing too! Also under a whole heap of mess, I'm wondering if I should start a new trend in carpeting - the 'covered-in-tiny-pieces-of-thread-as-mojo-has-gone-and-I-can't-be-bothered-hoovering' look. Hope you find yours soon!!!

Hi Fee, I reckon there is a mojo conspiracy going on. Mine took my get up and go and got up and went. Maybe it's having a lovely mid year break with yours and a few others. Hang in there I'm sure we will all be reunited soon.

Maybe your mojo is under my bed in my sewing room....yes thats right, we're sleeping in my sewing room whilst renovating and it's driving me crazy!! If I showed pics of my lounge room & bedroom it would make you feel heaps better....LOL.

Robyn said...

Fee you make me giggle.
This is simply normal some days for all of us...and then we pick up and go again.
Yep mine's about the same presently... *grin*

Take it easy on yourself and enjoy a change. Your mojo will return :-)

Sheila said...

Fiona, your sewing room really doesn't look that bad I know for sure mine has looked worst in the past .As for that Mojo , it seems to escape all of us at times and you worked really hard at your show so it is understandable you need a break .

I hate to admit that my sewing room looks awful at the moment. Unfortunately though, my sewing machine doesn't want to sew right now, so I'm going to have to spend my usual sewing time cleaning.

Maria said...

Oh I thought all sewing rooms looked like that Fee. The only time my is tidied is when I go on holidays.
We all need a rest sometimes,even from the things we love to do.Your Mojo will return soon.

suz said...

If that's your messy time...I wish mine looked that good!

Gillie said...

I'm chuckling here as if you look back in my blog to sometime earlier this year that could be my room - just substitute stitching stuff for quilting (my fabric is downstairs, lol!) so was not horrified at all, quite normal really! Here's to mojo returining, it'll be somewhere in that cupboard, for sure!

BubzRugz said...

I think mojo wriggled under those lovely pinks and greens........ definitely somewhere in there...

Chookyblue...... said...

Jo in TAS said...

Hi Fee,
I think your mojo is under there somewhere! My Mojo gets buried occassionally but it comes out when it's ready!
Hugs
Jo
PS Did I tell you we're retreating?

Allie said...

Hey sweets - it really doesn't look that bad - when I lose my mojo under piles, I can't find my bed either. Put on a good movie and have some fun while you tidy, ok?

kathyros said...

Hey thats not so bad Fiona, I can see patches of blue carpet there now and again :) No one said it has to be perfect and if they did we dont have to listen to those people anyway!! LOL

Peg - Happy In Quilting said...

Fee I am sure your mojo is in that ?????....!!!! creative space somewhere, I can see it, there it is, in those bolts of fabric....quick grab it....LOL...Peg

Laurie said...

Oh Yes my Mojo is hiding with yours has been for weeks now or even months....your retail therapy is just just beautiful love the delicate colours and in fact love every thing about it .....was almost tempted with some of the others myself..but car reg and insurance, and house insurance due this month so just have to hang off but will deffinately be going back to her website.
Your beaded sissor fobs were great also.
Hang in there and if you find my mojo send it home with a flea in it's ear.

Hugs Laurie

Jude said...

At some time every quilters sewing area looks like yours, so dont worry about that, but please look every where for your mojo we need to see your work to inspire us.

Sharon (Stitches on Mars) said...

Hi Fiona,

I wish my craft room was as messy as yours...no really its sooo messy something moved and set off the alarm LOL.. my husband had to come home from work as I was at the craft fair...he was not impressed.
Hugs, Sharon

Jeni said...

its funny Fee.....I thought my sewing room was the only one like yours....
but I just keep walking in and out of the room as I don't know where to start.............I was never like this...............to many projects on the go.................I think I need a head ache pill ...........

Pauline said...

hi fee, you do realise dont you,,that you can give yourself some time off now and then...maybe mojo just resting? lol..

dianne said...

Fiona, Your sewing room looks GOOD as compared to mine right now. Recently we have sold my parents home AND some things from home have ended up in MY ROOM. I am not ready yet to go through the things again & place them where they will live for awhile. Soo my dear take a breath & take a moment for YOU. Cheers: Dianne.

Wendy B said...

Oh Fee, concensus seems to be that we are all the same!!!! Just think, being untidy means it surely has been used well!!! New projects are in there hiding, I can see them popping out soon!!!! warm sugary hugs XXX Wendy :O)

Lurline said...

Thanks for letting us know, Fee - I see all these pics of beautiful, organized stashes and my little heart sinks down. Today I want to tidy my stitching corner - maybe my mojo is there, lol!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Black Eyed Susie said...

Believe me, it's not even close to the mess in mine! Hope your mojo is back.

John'aLee said...

Thanks for sharing pics of your sewing room. It makes the rest of us feel okay with our own....we probably just aren't as brave as you are to share them.
Love your blog!
