I drifted away, but the currents of life brought me back this way. 
I stopped sewing for myself, don’t know why, I just couldn’t do it.  I would pull fabric and a pattern from the stash, sit there and look at it then put it away.  Just no inspiration or desire to sew.  I made a new fleece coat over the winter for myself, and that is it.
 I’ve  now lost 2 stone and am starting to feel better about myself, the urge to create something is returning.  I went to Fabworks this morning...... :angel:

I’m now a Grandma, with a gorgeous little granddaughter to sew for as well.   Short bursts of sewing to get the juices flowing again.

Hi @Tiggy good to have you back. We all lose our mojo at times  :sew:

Hope you feel happier now you're a bit lighter and you have a scrummy GD to drool over.

Hello @Tiggy, nice to see meet you here. Congratulations on the weight loss, that's a lot and you are surely in need of clothes. Go for it! Or sew for your grandchild - that is VERY rewarding. I started sewing with dresses for my niece, who was so very appreciative - it made me love sewing.  :)
