WIP Wednesday: Struggle Edition

Yet again, I have nothing. It's been about 2 weeks since I've even come close to stitching anything.

When I still had a job, all I wanted to do was be home so I could stitch. Even before I was fired and work was super stressful and annoying, I was still able to get inspired. I thought that being unemployed would give me the opportunity to spend the majority of my time stitching, which would help me get through all the bs going on around me. I've been unemployed 3 months now and I've barely stitched anything. I am completely uninspired and unable to come up with any new ideas. It's not uncommon for me to have stitcher's block, but this is worse because I feel like I can't think anymore. I started calling it mental constipation because that's really what it feels like. I'm extremely frustrated because at this point I've already lost my job and my home and now I feel like I'm losing my hobby too.

While I was in Texas, I did buy a pattern that I'll be starting on this week, so I'll at least be stitching something. But pattern making is a big part of why I like stitching so much, so it really sucks not to be able to do it.
