How did I get so far behind?

At the start of the pandemic I joined the Moda Blockheads weekly free block group. Each week I eagerly awaited for the next pattern to arrive in my mail box and cut out the fabric and made the block, sometimes 12 inch and sometimes 8 inch. I thought the different sizes would make for an interesting quilt layout.

Suddenly I am NINE blocks behind including todays block. How did that happen? I have managed to cut out the fabric for some of my missing blocks and really must find the ‘umph’ from somewhere to get sewing. 
I think like many people we were all eager to start new projects whether it be sewing, knitting, crochet etc at the start of the lockdown, but it is wearing a bit thin now and I am finding it harder and harder to get going.
Chris has been told to ‘shield’ until the end of July, so another five weeks minimum of staying home other than the occasional walk.
Five weeks will mean five more Moda Blockheads patterns, so I’ll close now and thread up my sewing machine.

How are you coping ?
Love to hear from you if you can spare a minute to leave a comment...
