As some of you have probably noticed...I haven't been overly active as of late. Like....on my end. I haven't been sewing much, patterning much or anything at all. I was burnt out and discouraged, and the last thing I wanted to do was be creative. So...I starting trying to figure out where my lack of motivation came from.
I love sewing. It's fun and relaxing. So it wasn't that.
I have a nice machine and oodles of fabric...so that's out.
I have a space dedicated to sewing...
I'm off on weekends and daily at 5pm
and then it hit me.
It was a lack of encouragement. And not from people on here....
It was a lack of encouragement and praise from my commissioners. I spend hours patterning, sewing, putting in details and trying to ensure that it's not going to fall apart with a snuggle. I put love, sweat and blood into my creations, and as soon as I send them off...I never hear from my commissioners again =/ I know it really shouldn't bother me, but it does. So I'm working on not letting that bother me. I have an amazing person who is encouraging and doesn't let me get down. He gives me that nudge in the right direction that I need..
so I guess what I'm trying to say is...
I really hope to be active again!
Love you all =]
