A missing sewing mojo - found?

I'm finding I'm doing a lot of procrastinating lately, I'm just a bit too tired to make the initial effort to start anything - and that's not just sewing, but anything really.

I think one of the problems with the sewing issue is that I've put on quite a bit of weight that I want to lose again, so it doesn't feel like it's worth putting the effort into sewing something if it won't fit me in a little while.

But... then I realised I'll feel better and happier if I have nice clothes that fit and flatter me as I am now, and feeling happier might spur me into doing more things that make me feel even better - like losing a bit of weight, and more sewing.

So, I decided to sew a circle skirt as that would be flattering, requires no fitting and could be sewn in an evening! Yay! Had the day off work yesterday and sewed it over the course of the afternoon, just finished hemming it tonight (all 15 feet of it!) after letting it hang overnight. Total time to make including cutting out was probably 3 hours. Going to wear it tomorrow, probably with the cream jersey blouse I made.

Now all I need to do is find the camera charger so I can take a photo of it...
