Mojo sighted

I'm not sure if my Mojo is completely back, but there is a glimmer of hope.

Today I did my shift at school and then came home and just sewed like the clappers for the Christmas Fair:

I whipped up this 14" cushion in under 2 hours - it is made with part of a panel from La Petite Ecole and trimmed with mini pom poms from The Village Haberdashery.  A big thank you to Angela at Fussy Cut for this excellent tutorial of how to attach pom pom trim to a cushion.

Then I moved onto more mini stockings, because if I am going to do this Christmas Fair, I might as well have things to sell: now I have 36 mini stockings, which I will be hanging on a 3 foot artificial tree that I got from Tesco.  The tree cost £2.44.  How on earth do they make stuff for nothing?!

Anyway, when I set off on the school run I was feeling invincible.  Raaaaaaaah!  Wonder Woman!

But somehow, like a tyre with a slow puncture, over the past 6 hours my Mojo has quietly slinked away and I am feeling deflated again.

I think it is partly because I need to finish my Christmas Decoration for the LMQG Ornament Swap on Sunday, but right now I am all Christmas deco'd out.  Come on, Wonder Woman - one last push!

Sneak peek (and partly because she doesn't have any legs yet)

  6. Gertie, again you have brightened my day, it's so good to hear that someone else has these ups and downs in a day! I'm still in a bit of disbelief after reading your post though as I've just bought that alphabet fabric to make cushions just like yours!!! Couldn't believe my eyes when I saw your photo and now you've set me quite a challenge - 2 hours?!?!?! Hope you're busy mojoing again today :)

  7. You can do it - just take a deep breathe, and......
