I have something to confess! I am certain that for those of you that have been following my blog, you might have noticed that I don't blog as much as I did before, even my weekly link ups are not consistent. I hardly share any pictures on Instagram either. My last IG was about 3 weeks ago and even then they are spread far apart.
The truth is, is that my life has gone from one of routine and simplicity to a more complicated one. My husband is now working away from home. It is not that bad since he comes home over the weekends. But ever since this change I am just not myself!
I am pretty sure most of you are thinking that if you had all this extra time to sew and quilt you'd spend it happily in your sewing room, but for me it has been very depressing! I am just not myself, I wont go as far as to say that I am depressed, I am just not ME. I don't deal with change well, or with being alone. I thought that when Spring finally got here that it would have a different and maybe inspiring effect on me, but not even that has cheered me up....yet!
Maybe I just need some inspiration? Who knows... but for now, I am getting on with daily chores, kids and... my thoughts. I know its all in my mind and that I have to make and maybe even force myself out of this mood. It is just taking a lot longer than I had hoped.
