Hurricane Sandy

I haven't posted in a long while, I have diagnosed myself with lost mojoitis (with the assistance of ReadyThreadSew). It is, fortunately a rare condition. I have felt no inclination to be creative at all, no sewing, no interesting cooking, no needlework, no polymer clay, no playing with my camera, etc etc etc.  Just torturing dogs with grooming tools (torture according to them, that is). However, this post isn't about any of that.

Like most people in North America I have been glued to CNN watching the storm beat the crap out of the east coast. I just want to say that I am praying for everyone at this difficult time. May the night pass quickly and safely.

Take care everyone, be safe.

    1. I have been dieting (and losing weight), so apparently my mojo disappeared along with some fat. Since nothing I make now will even come close to fitting me when I am done, there isn't much point in sewing anyway.

      22 pounds down, 45- 50 to go..............

  2. This is an epidemic! Is the weather making us all mini-series watchin' non-creatives? I know I am limping along uninspiredly.

  3. A lot of people on my blogroll have lost their sewjo. Hopefully we find it soon. Of course, I just get jealous of those who aren't suffering from missing sewjoitis, and then I go knit instead. :P

  4. I feel you Elle. Not interested in doing anything too. I really hope Sandy does not cause too much damage.

  5. I live in Philadelphia and I thank you for the wishes. I am from Florida so I've had my fair share of hurricanes. I have to admit - this one was bad! Not bad because of wind speed - it was only a category 1 - but because of flooding. It hit at high tide and on a full moon. Sandy truly was a Frankenstorm! I, luckily, did not suffer too much damage.

    1. Glad to hear you are fine, one more person checked off my mental list 8-). I spent two whole days glued to CNN, and I reached my limit. So much destruction, so much sadness, it is overwhelming.

  6. Thank you for thinking of us, Elle. The storm brought lots of wind and rain to central Massachusetts, but my husband and I were very fortunate and lost power for only a couple of hours. Those living closer to the New England coastline fared much worse. Then, of course, there are NY and NJ, which are devastated. I'm truly grateful to not have suffered as the people there have.

  7. PS Meant to encourage you on the creativity front. I'm hoping you'll soon find interest in the things that give you so much pleasure. Keep your chin up!

    1. I am so pleased to hear you are fine, the thing that is so bad about losing power is that you never know how long it will be gone. If you knew it would only be for XXX hours, it wouldn't be so stressful.

      Thanks for your encouragement, the mojo will return eventually. I am planning a craft day/weekend with my niece, nothing like doing something creative with someone else to get the juices flowing.
