Have You Ever Experienced a Funk?

Thanks to Sarai over at Coletterie, I realized that I am in a funk.  I couldn't figure out why I was so unproductive lately during the rare event I found time to sew.  I have been blaming it on the stress of my new job, but I think this might be something all together different.  A rut!  How do I get out of it?  Inspiration?  Set some goals?  Work through it?  Even my new machine has not helped. 
Have you ever experienced anything like this?  What did you do to get out of it?

  1. I take times like this to organize stash, catalog patterns, tidy notions, clean machines, and generally do not sew. It's okay to not be productive. Hope you feel better soon!

  2. I agree with Mary. Clean up your sewing space and organize fabric! Sometimes I get really inspired after organizing everything. Makes me discover things I forgot about. Hope you lose the funk soon!

  3. Thank you ladies! I like the idea of putting some time into the sewing room. After reading your posts, I took a look and realized that it is a bit depressing in there.

  4. I am another in favour of a quick clean-up, but I also like to just prowl around online and gain motivation from others, such as yourself. But as a fellow teacher (Year 1 this year) I do think we need a break from everything (sewing included) once and awhile...
