I read the most interesting thing the other day.
It was about Julia Child.
Apparently Julia loved Chinese food but never cooked it. She figured that mastering French cooking was enough for one lifetime.
This is very interesting.
It seems to me that sewers are faced with these kinds of dilemmas. What kind of sewer are you? Do you specialize? Have you drawn the line at some point in your sewing career and said I can buy pants that fit so I am not putting energy into sewing them? Do you sew for grandchildren but not yourself? Are you a Matterhorn sewer and like to master one challenge after the other? Are you a sewer like those folks who, when they eat out, always look at what the other people have ordered and wish they had ordered that?
Do you focus when you sew? On one type of garment, or one concept like SWAP, or are you a restless sewer whose mind is always on the next, and different, project?
Could you sew like Julia cooked?
Would you want to?
These are very serious issues.
