Hi I used to love sewing, crochet any sort of arts and crafts really.
I'm still halfway threw a mermaid blanket I started a year ago.
I just need a kick up the bum to get back into it plz smile

If I lose my crojo, I find a small easy quick project does the trick (I can only crochet) and then I try to finish all my wips. I'm struggling with a c2c atm, so I'm doing granny squares to break up the monotony, with a view to finishing the c2c soon.

That sounds like an idea trying something that is quick to whip up.
Will have a look at Pinterest try and get some inspiration

I've got 5 projects on the go and no sign of finishing any. I get so bored! Perhaps what we need is a crochet swapping thing where we send out projects round other people to finish grin

I did a crochet a long with a Facebook group which really helped. The social aspect and gentle pressure to keep up was great. You could look for something starting soon?

U fortunately not on Facebook!!
I really need to get my mojo back. Crochet was my wind down and with 2dc 1 with asd I needed it grin.
Still not picked up a hook since posting this.
I was new to crochet and think I took on too big of a project and it just bogged me down

Right so even though I can crochet I had never done a granny square confused.
So I have just done my first granny square.
Got to take the kids out now but will def be doing some more later
