I think I found where my Mojo went

This is to all my  friends whose Mojo has left.  I was thinking last night and trying to figure out where this Mojo thing went.  I decided that it is still here it is just waiting for me to get my stuff together before it comes back. 

What I discovered was that I have strayed from the basics. 
Now all of our basics are different.  What I mean by that is the bags you enjoyed making the most that is the basics.  Pull out that much loved pattern. One that you have really enjoyed making.  Pick some fabric that you have in your resource center that you bought because you just couldn't be with out it.  Put the 2 together.  That might be where the Mojo is hiding.  I think mine is peeking out from behind that piece of fabric shouting "Is it my turn NOW!!!!!!"   Well I am thinking it might be.
Just a thought.  Katti Lynn might appear again.

Hope you who have been struggling with that necessary element that YOU need to get back in the groove is hiding somewhere you haven't looked for a while. 

I am going to go check again!!!!!

Getting My Mojo Back

Hello Everyone!!!!!!!  It is pouring in Michigan.  Heaven knows we need it.  The GRASS is CRUNCHING!!!!!!!!!  It is a wonder it doesn't start burning just by stepping on it.  Such as it is in the summer.

But on to the fun stuff.  I am so working on that MOJO thing everyone talks about.  Somewhere this year mine has been misplaced but I am hot on the trail and the big fix.  I had been working (yes I said had) part-time for about 1 1/2 yrs.  I QUIT!!!  Got tired of all the politics.  Yea in a store with 6 employees there was politics.  Mostly by age.  I QUIT!!!  But the sewing had not been happening until the last posting with the bag.  It has been a slow process and is not done yet.  I have been picking out small pieces of leftovers.  I am working on getting something done with them.  I just know I can't throw them out--I must do something with them.  Now mind you some of these are maybe 1" x 4".  Now come on!  This is ridiculous.  But I just know I can do something with them.

I do have enough of those strips left from the Bali Pop pack to make another bag.  I need to find coordinating pieces to go with them.  I have also been playing with some new tools.  Working them into something I think I can use.  So I think going at it slowly I will have the MOJO back before to long.  My sister and niece are wanting bags AND my sister know someone else who might be wanting some for a craft shop.  I can't think that big right this minute though until that elusive MOJO gets back. 

Maybe when I get some of all these little ideas (and pieces) put together I can do more than think and draw I can do.  I WILL let you all know.

It is raining and with little interruption I plan on confining some of that sewing energy today to make some progress.
