WIP Wednesday 5/4 (A Day Late)

I’m trying to decide if this week has gone quickly or slowly.  Right now, it’s feeling very slow.  I am going to admit right away that I have been terribly unmotivated since I shared my WIPs last week. 

I finished the Cupcake Hat, started the pincushion and….yep, that’s as far as I got.  In fact, the Cupcake Pincushion is nearly complete.  All that’s left is the cherry on top.  And it’s been sitting like that since Saturday I believe.  :/  Who knew that something so simple could hold me up?  And it’s not because I think it will be hard or that I can’t do it.  I’ve just been unmotivated (which is another way of saying LAZY, I think). 

I still need to knit the froggy clip for my sister’s friend.  I thought I would have it done by the end of the week last week and I haven’t even started.  Good thing the baby won’t arrive for a while. 

And then there are a few obligatory projects I need to get started that are small and require very little thought and absolutely no new yarn or needles and yet here I sit, just vaguely remembering they exist.  So I’m feeling behind.  I am behind. 

As far as sewing goes, I’m plugging away on Etsy orders.  I’ve almost got them all complete, just a handful more and then I’m backing off from custom orders for awhile.  I will still sew cases and list them in my shop but they will be purely, premade cases that are ready to ship.  Less obligations to keep track of that way.  And it gives me more time for personal sewing. 

The good news in all of this is that Friday marks Week 13, which means I’ll be entering the second trimester for my pregnancy.  I can feel where my uterus has grown and stretched, and I must say that it’s nice to finally have some concrete confirmation that yes, I am still pregnant.  It’s hard the first few weeks when you can’t feel any changes other than strange food aversion, cravings and nausea!  I imagine the bump will make it’s appearance sooner than with Squishy, but we shall see.  I need to do some clothes shopping soon because clothes are starting to get uncomfortable or not fitting quite right. 

So, that’s a glimpse into my week – what’s happening in yours?


  1. I can relate in feeling un-motivated!! Right now I have a pile of things that I need to get done and I don't feel like working on any of them. I keep getting distracted by every new pattern that walks by! lol

  2. I feel like I've lost my knitting mojo too... I have a few things to finish before I can tackle anything new but I don't even want to cast anything new on... I must be getting ill!

  3. Me too; sometime when I finish a project, I lag a bit before starting a new one. I finally fixed the alpaca hat yesterday.
    Congrats on being preggers. I miss that feeling in the first two trimesters but I'm done w/all that...LOL. I unfortunately have laundry to catch up on this week.
