Sewing slump...

It seems that I have hit a sewing slump lately. Does that ever happen to you? I don't know if it is because it is summer time or what, but I just do. not. want. to. sew. If you know me, that is crazy talk!! The fact that my son is working on dropping his nap doesn't help either. His naps are usually when I do my crafting. That little stinker!

I have so many projects waiting to be made. Every year I make most of my Christmas gifts, and this year I do not want to disapoint! This year I am undertaking my biggest project to date! If I want to complete all my gifts in time, I need to get started ASAP. But I just can't work up the energy....hopefully I will get started next week. I wish I could share what I will be making, but I don't want to spoil the surprise for my family!

I've recently joined Pintrest. It's my new addiction, and it is motivating me to get in front of the machine and create something! I have found so many project ideas on there.

Here are just some of my favorites:

I have the perfect fabric for this! The pattern can be found here.

Fabric matching game. Genius! Some people are just so creative. Bobby is getting really good at games like this, so I really want to make this soon. Pattern here.

I love this oven mitt! It would make such a great gift. Can't wait to make it!

I saw these pillows when I was pregnant with Lily, and just knew I wanted to make them for her someday. How cute are they?!

Look. At. This. Dress. I can't get enough of it!! You can get the PDF pattern here. I love the fabric used for this dress. It is so happy! I can't wait for Lily to get older so I can make it for her.

I've said it before, but I'll say it again...some people are so creative! I can hardly stand it. I hope to come out of my slump and get back to sewing soon, so keep checking my blog and my shop for updates!
