Completely Unmotivated

That's how I've been the past few days. I just don't want to do anything crafty. I just want to sit and read.

I did get done the labels that I needed to make up for my hand spun and recycled yarns that I'll be listing on etsy. I'm not completely in love with them, but they will do for now. I think they look a bit uninspired.
Today I have to get going on a valentines gift for my girls. A few weeks ago my daughter begged me to buy this fabric so I could make her something with it. It was on clearance, so I bought it. It's being washed at the moment, so I can so I can make both girls something. I'm not sure what yet. But, I'm thinking either a simple comfy basic shirt or a long tunic style simple t-shirt. I do love this fabric, so I'm sure whatever I do they will love and wear it. I'll post pictures when I'm done.
My "Ocean Park" yarn is finished having the twist set. So, it's ready for the scarf that I want to make out of it. I don't know about a pattern. I know that I want the scarf to be long, but there is only 138 yards. I think I'll just go for it and do a very simple stockinet stitch until I run out of yarn. I'm thinking I'll try for a 5" wide scarf. But, that may be to wide. We'll see.
Ok, so just writing this has made me more motivated. I'm off to get to work!

It must be something in the air. I have been feeling so unmotivated lately too. I pick up some yarn or fabric and then can't seem to find a project to go with it.

Here's hoping it end soon :)
