sewing withdrawal, artist block or season transition blues!?!?

I have the plan in my mind the way I should make the toddler parka – I just got to get back in the mood to sew my main project!!! I am currently sewing a child booty at this time;

This season is like the end of the line for my adult parka – I am nearly done with it (putting off few tassels and some bead work). See my line? Lol

when one thread ends a new thread begins;

Few clips of fur and left over material find their way to smaller projects. When I have a request for traditional gear that gives me motivation. I work better under pressure and when I give myself a deadline but who listens to their deadlines- haha!!!

I found that when I have a guest I don’t have the drive to do crafts. I love my sisters and one of them came to visit us. Quyana Myra and Emily my niece.🌸 They brought and used the kameksak and house slippers I made for them. I was happy surprised.

Today is no fool for me but a celebration for the Risen King of kings!! Thank you Jesus for the gift of life. 🌸❤️🌸

I normally get both side booties finished at one time but I have only one side – this is another motivation to finish what I have started. When circumstances happen it’s just another turn of direction – like a short cut or long cut to the finish line – keep going!

I was a day behind my original deadline in finishing the baby booties. Here it is the final product;
