Lost My Mojo

Long time no blog. Since I have last blogged I went to a hook in. I know Courtney has shown these but just a couple of my favorites.                                                                                                                            
The colors and hooking on these rugs are wonderful.

This rug I am totally lusting after. I have to hook this rug! But first I have to hook a rug for Miss Baby and
get my mojo back.

This is will be a chicken that has little wire feet and stands up.
I have had this pattern for years and decided now was the time.
This is how it did look before I unhooked it all! It is a 4 cut, I hate to work with a
small cut and the colors were awful. Since I have unhooked it I have rehooked about
3 different wools in. Now my theory is I never unhook anything. I leave it and move on.
Because this is what happens I am now at a point that nothing looks right.

Since no hooking mojo, I go on to finish the paper mache hearts I have started.
They did turn out kind of cute but getting there was a problem.
I hot glued my pants which I still can't get out.
when the hot glue hit my pants I dropped the glue gun on the floor and it
glued it's self to the floor.

I was unable to do any laundry over the weekend so between working,laundry,cleaning,and cooking not much else is getting done.
The library called to let me know the movie I wanted was in. I have not had the time to watch it.
by the time I am done everything at night I am so tired I go to bed. No movie yet.

The best thing that has happened to me is this wool! The flash could not get the right color it is a beautiful pink. Just waiting for me to make something for Miss baby. Thank you so much Courtney! It was so nice to
see her and spend the day hooking.

So if anyone has seen my MOJO let me know.
Cause not much is getting done creatively around here.
I have been  featured! thrifty things a great blog about saving.

Oh Cathy ~
I've got some hooking mojo to spare and I'll try to send some your way!
What beautiful yarn from Courtney.
Hugs :)

I have been there...many times. Sometimes I just have to step back and do something totally different for awhile. I read that book, want to see the movie. I saw all those rugs, they were amazing! Sometimes I think after you go to something like that, you get overwhelmed with how much you WANT to do and you THINK that nothing you are doing measures up. Hang in there, you'll find your mojo again!

I'm sorry...but I'm chuckling! Sounds like my life! I do have my hooking mojo...but I'm so beat after work that it's hard to actually pick up the hook. I have a rug where I want to unhook everything and start again...or give it away! LOL
Hope the wool mojo returns, but in the meantime...I love those hearts. I've done no decorating for Valentines...sad!

That robin rug has me interested! I haven't been able to find the designer's name though. I think that it's not really losing a hooking MOJO, so much as it is the Winter blahs? It's dark by the time I get home from work, so all I want to do is sleep when I get home! lol! That's my story anyways... I've been thinking about Spring and warm air and sunshine in anticipation of Spring actually arriving! We need some sunshine and daffodils! :-)

Seems I lost my SEWING MOJO a few years back and can't seem to find that either! I need to, however, since I have volunteered to make four sofa pillows for my husband's younger daughter! The rugs are wonderful. I tried rug hooking years ago and the little lady trying to teach almost threw the yarn hook in the air giving up!

The rugs are so pretty,I get bogged down too,we all do from time to time,you will be ok,just take it a day at a time. Blessings Jane

Hi Cathy,
I am laughing with you! LOL! It seems I've been in a twit around here too lately! The last few days seemed nothing turned out the way I wanted and I didn't know where to start! Maybe it's the radiation from the sun that's supposed to be reaching earth right now! LOL!
Something isn't right! I haven't seen that movie either and want to so let us know how you liked it..... when you get time!!

Those rugs are so charming! I have always wanted to hook rugs, but never have. Not that I need any more crafting projects ~ I am still working on that long unfinished quilt!

I love hooked rugs although it's not something I do -- I have a great vintage one in our bedroom that is perfect!

WendyBee said...

I can sympathize. Though I've never hooked a rug, all my beloved me-time activities take a back-seat to LiFe all the time. And many times the few stolen moments I do have, don't coincide with my inspiration.
I guess you'll get it back sometime soon. Maybe this is a post-stress reaction to all you have been through with David, rolled together with Post-Holiday Letdown and New England in February (anti-climactic though it is this year).
Get some fresh flowers (hyacinths, daffodil, tulips?) and just relax. Take things slow and easy. Your MoJo will be grooving again in no time.

Congrats on being featured and I know you'll get that MOJO back asap. But I have to say I'm sorry because I did laugh at the glue gun incident...maybe making "hot pants" is your real MOJO? Enjoy the weekend!

Hope your mojo returns soon!!! I hope you enjoyed "The Help," I devoured it!!!! The movie is fantastic too!

I think you should relax today and get ready for Super Bowl!!!!

Go Pats!!!!
