Monday-itis or February Funk?

Yesterday I had the worse case of Monday-itis.  I just couldn't start anything, or finish anything, or stick to anything!  I have to make a Very Hungry Caterpillar Quilt for one of my dearest friends.  I know that it is the perfect choice for the first child of 2 librarians but everytime I get the fabrics out I sigh, and shuffle, and rearrange, and scratch my head, and then put them away again.  I just cannot seem to make a start. I even went to my friend Nic for help and inspiration!

I started so well with my January WIPs and now I seem to have just fallen into a hole.  I seem to do this every year.  Craft up a storm for a few weeks and then crash and burn in February.  Maybe my February Funk has come early this year?  Maybe I need to find a few smaller (more instantly gratifying) projects?

And in keeping with the attitude of gratitude stuff today I am grateful for quiet time, and hand-me-downs, and chocolate!
