I've lost my Mo Jo?

This is all of the crocheting that I have done in the past few weeks and I haven't enjoyed making any of them. It's been such a drag to pick up the hook and find a new project. It has not helped being in and out of hospital and back and forth to doctors and specialist's, it's so depressing and I can't find my mo jo for my love of crochet. I still have the table full of UFO'S to get to and that is not like me at all. Is it a slump or my medical condition or both?

This is the beginning of an afghan pattern called Sun Bonnet Sue
Sun Bonnet Sue is made first, then you crochet the square around her.
I lost interest and only did 4 squares.
2 small baby jackets, I haven't even put buttons on them yet.
This is a singlet type top for me for summer. I'm very pleased with it, just a little large on me, but it will be a nice loose fit for those hot Summer days. I'll wear a singlet top underneath. This took me a week to make, where I would have usually had it done in 2 days.
So how do I get my enthusiasm back? Not just for crochet but for every day things.

Cats, just hang in there, it will come back. I think we have all been there. When your health is suffering, everything else will too.
But just crochet or do what ever you want to do, when you feel like it. Don`t push it.

sun sue looks soo cute!!!!
She reminds me of Holly Hobbie.
I hope you get well soon!!! I have bad breathing problems so I know what it's like to be ill and have no mo jo. I had to leave my job beacause of it. I'm glad your back!!! Feel better.

Thanks sherryknit and tisme, it's nice to know people are out there and care enough to say so.

don't panic just yet, cat... the mojo will return... it's not lost, just hiding!

your body needs all available energy for restoration at the moment... take a break from all thinks craft for a while, and focus on your health... when that comes good, your inspiration is sure to return :)

I'm having a bit of a crafting lull myself, at the moment

Cats didn't know you were ill. But that won't do. You have to rest and follow doc. orders.
I'm just coming out of the slump. And if your not well you don't want or feel like crocheting. So take care.
Love the SBS Are you going to share too?

Jan no mojo yet, but I'm slowly realising I've lost enthusiasm for most things not just crochet. I did have a peppy day this week and am looking forward to more peppy days.
