Still no mojo to be found…

Ack! We’re back from the cottage (sorry, I forgot to take more wallpaper photos) and it was blistering hot here, too hot to sit on the deck so I ventured down into the lovely cool, tidy basement. I had to add “tidy” in there because I cleaned last weekend and haven’t done anything since.

After flipping through the Zakka Style book and folded some laundry, I thought I’d use Robert Kaufman’s vanilla linen and California Girl (by Fig Tree) to make a card trick block. Much cutting later and I still don’t feel like sewing. Ug. Thankfully the temperature has dropped and we can sit outside again. White wine spritzer anyone?

Such delicious fabric, why don’t I want to sew??

Is it a seasonal thing?
