Find Your Motivation

A vase I designed with inlaid glass that didn't come out as nice as I hoped it would.

Or in my case, find MY motivation. I have so many cool plans. Plans that go nowhere if I don't apply some elbow grease in the right direction. I've had a lot of gardening motivation lately. I need some sewing motivation. I keep flipping through patterns, cutting things out and planning, but I'm not finishing anything. I get bogged down somewhere in the middle. It's so frustrating.

Today's theme is to make everything more appealing. So I started with my garden and got rid of a lot of weeds and grass.  Then I planted sunflower seeds and 3 varieties of tomato plants. I also found out that cilantro clippings have wonderful feathery leaves and delicate white flowers and work great as cut flowers. So I put some of those in a vase in my kitchen, and if I need them for a recipe, I just pull a stem out and cut it up with my kitchen shears and toss it into the soup or salad or stir-fry. So now the garden is more appealing, even though I still have a lot of work to do out there.
