What to start on next?

Have you ever had trouble deciding what to start sewing on next?
I've been struggling with these for a few weeks now.
I just don't know what to do next?
I've never had this problem before.
I have gotten a few things out and started or worked on them, to only end up packing them back up and not wanting to work on that.
I'm just trying different things to see if something will catch my interest. 
Nothing I loosing my sewing mojo?
I can't be, I want it to come back.
Please come back mojo, please.

What to do, what to do?

I have proof that your ears are very important................

any questions?

A few weeks back I had a mild case of swimmers ear, or at least that's what they urgent care doc said.
Knowing what I know now, I think she was wrong.  
The pain did go away, but Sunday it was back and back hard. 

It is the worst pain.  My dad compares it to a tooth ache.  Knock on wood, I've never had a tooth ache, just got my first cavity 2 years ago.

Anywho, it's a inner ear infection and the doc said it looked pretty bad.  They washed it out (yeah, that was interesting).  And I've started all the above meds, no relief yet.  It's not been 24 hours, so I know in time it will be better.

I've not been sewing anything really, I have nothing to show.  Just wanted all my lovely peeps to know i'm still alive.

I recently won...and Bingo anyone?

book from Melissa.....

Rachel?? This is my kind of reading.  lol

Remember awhile back, maybe a year I hosted QUILT (bingo), you send me fat quarters (5 if you want to play 5 cards or 1 if you want to play 1 card, how many ever you prefer)

There is a blog just for this and I'm trying to now find out who runs it, and it will all be hosted through that blog.  Please let me know if you are interested.  International players will be accepted.

On Our Walk

 click on the picture and inside the inner circle is grandfather mountain
if you look closely it should resemble a "grandfather's" face
it will be even more visible once all the leaves have fallen

the view down our road, if we kept walking straight we'd end at the main road
the driveway that you can see the slight corner of to the left is ours, not the fenced one

just as you pull into our driveway you can see the back of tj's truck and our building
we're so lucky to have these views on our walks

now that the weather is much cooler, i've got to get more committed to these walks
my back has been hurting and i can't stand for long periods of time, gotta get some fat weight off

i've got a BIG shopping day next week with Pat
i hope i can keep up with her, ha

Tree Time BOM #10

Tree Time
Originally uploaded by TonyasSewing
Dear Molly....please never let me finish designing a block/bom again. I like your designs much better. I look forward to BOM #11. Those of you not following this bom, she designed the tree and a few leaves. Not the leaves I choose though. Oh well, it's done and not a UFO. That's all that matters.
