Bernice has been gathering dust, literally and figuratively-speaking. The only action she's seen lately is when I fixed a pair of Mr. P's pants.
Looks like my sewing room could use a good clean-up too.
Poor Swoon has been abandoned for a while. I think I've decided to quilt this myself. And I think I may have convinced myself that there's nothing wrong with stippling/meandering.
I ate this for supper tonight:
It was unbelievably good. I kind of forgot we'd bought it a couple of weeks ago and then tonight, with Mr. P away, I went foraging in the freezer and unearthed the good blue box.
It's supposed to be healthy too.
I undid the healthiness by making this for dessert:
It's a brownie-in-a-mug. I got the recipe off Pinterest. You can find it here. I have been spending a lot (A LOT) of downtime on Pinterest lately. Too much time. I've been pinning a lot (A LOT) of food. It's quite pathetic, really.
Oh, I've been getting the essentials done - marking, laundry, housework, yoga and dance classes (I love my dance classes). But no sewing. Just Pinterest and a few shows watched on my computer. I used to only watch t.v. and movies while I was sewing. Sigh.
I did go out last Saturday night, though. I went to a '60s-themed party. Mr. P and I dressed up as hippies (late '60s? What do I know about that decade? I wasn't even born then.) Mr. P's costume was really funny. Mine was kind of lame, but at least I was comfortable.
Excuse the awful, low-lighting cell phone pic.
So, that's the story of my great, big slumpity-slump. No motivation, no energy, no will to do much of anything. It will pass; it always does.
And, anyway, I'm heading to ITALY next week (with 33 students...). That should cure me!
