You may be doubting me, but I really am working on a project. I promise! Look, proof:
This was taken a few days ago, but I’m horrible about taking “in progress” pictures, so it’s all I have for now.
I’m currently making a blouse out of the beautiful Britex printed silk that I mentioned before. It is such a gorgeous fabric…and I only have one little yard of it…and they’re sold out now! So I’m going very slowly to make sure I don’t mess up. And…let’s face it, I’m just a slow seamstress.
I absolutely admire those of you who whip up 7-10 garments per month! You definitely need Super Sewist capes!
Which brings me to a topic that I’ve often wondered about – how do you find time to sew as often as you like? I struggle with time management. I leave my house before 6:00 AM for work, get home around 5:00 PM…then there’s exercising with Mr. Thimble…dinner…cleaning the kitchen…every-day household chores, and early to bed so I can wake up at 5:00 the next morning. I only have a couple of hours that I could possibly spend sewing during week nights, and usually I’m so exhausted I can’t force myself off of our oh-so-comfy couch to do it.
Should i just accept the fact that I’ll never be a Super Sewist? Or should I learn to adjust to less sleep? That option is dangerous though…I closely resemble this lovely creature when I am sleep-deprived:
Please share your words of wisdom!
