Where did it go???

I am sitting here wondering where did it go??? Your scratching your head and wondering what in the world is APP talking about. I mean where did it go????? ... That statement could mean a number of things from....
Loss of Time
Loss of Energy
Last Slice of Chocolate Cake
The last Chocolate in the box
The Year
A friendship
Your Pay Check 
My thing on where did it go is...... my drive to sew and create... I have been in a horrible funk since the FIRST of the year. I can't seem to bring myself to sit down in front of my sewing machine. I have all of theses ideas racing around in my head and I just can't seem to get started. What I can get started is... Picking up the remote control and turning on the TV.....or going to bed early.  Last nite I made ... I repeat I made myself sit down in front of the sewing machine. I sewed up two siggy blocks, and one of my handcrafted Pin-keeps I sold in my Etsy shop. I also painted the legs on 8 Annies that I started a couple of weeks ago... The hardest part of making Annies in my opinion is stuffing all the parts... Putting on the hair... that drives me nuts too. After those two tasks have been completed its a breeze.. the fun part is just beginning for me ;)

I still have a few things that have been promised out to family and friends.. I must get started or finished up on all of those projects... 
First UFO is getting CJ's Accessory Swap finished.. the machine cover is almost completed.. after that the rest should be a breeze.
Next is attack with vigour my Niece Shelby's Art Bag.. I finally have all the material to complete this project.
I have started two mug rugs that were promised to a girl at work.. she made the Pitty a very cute crochet blankie to use this winter. I am to trade these two mug rugs for it.....
One of the girls a work purchased one of my Annies.
I still need to make my Auntie a walker caddy.. I am such a cad I haven't even done that!!!
I promised her that the first of the year!!
Aggg why do I make all of these promises??? 
(Says to herself ... everyone loves my sewing)
I need to finish up on my Vampire Annie and my Sisters Red White and Blue Annie.. all they need is Clothes. Then they are both done.. Why can't I sit down to make even those.. they work up fast!!!
What happened to those Quilts that I wanted to make with all the wonderful blocks that I have swapped over the last couple of years.......
Do you ladies see what I mean?? Where did it go????
Still sitting here like a lump!!!

yes yes I do feel the same way. and then I wonder where my mind went too. I haven't come to terms with the fact that it's MAY already. Soon I'll have to start on Christmas stuff. Have a fabulous day!

I am interested in seeing your vampire annie once it's done :) and how are you making an art bag? I would be interested in seeing how that's made and possibly making one for myself - I've taken on the task of learning how to paint with watercolors! and I've started on quilts for christmas projects already - I'm slow at sewing!

When you find your mojo would you mind checking if the year has hidden there with it...I'm not quite sure how it got to be well into May already!!!! Rest assured you are not alone...

It sure is elusive this year - lots of projects I would like to begin or even finish but it isn't happening here either.
Look forward to seeing some of your creations here soon.
