It might not be much. I have a pile of things I want to sew up for my daughter first, plus I want to make the most of the weather, the beach and the produce (yes I am making more mango chutney) too.
Also I have a confession to make. One of the things I find hardest to do is sit still but it seems as if you don't learn your lessons the occasions to learn them keep coming at you.
I really bashed myself up pretty bad when I failed to make that sharp right turn on my bike, I was going too fast. I figured keeping on riding for another five miles and 36 holes of golf would fix it all up but that wasn't true. So the last few days I have been off the course and slowing down and it is helping.
This made me examine the fact that I treat every event as an opportunity to double up and do more.
Which naturally brings me to sewing and my resolution to stop over-planning, over-committing, and over-scheduling.
I am really going to try to just sew what I feel like on the day rather than working my way down the to-do list. I always want to sew far more than I often have time for, and that leaves me feeling under-achieving when in actual fact I am doing just fine.
So the question I have for you is this.
What motivates you to sew your next project?
- The to-do list you worked out for the season, SWAP, or some wardrobe plan you have in mind?
- Seeing something fabulous on another sewer's blog?
- New patterns, new trends?
- The feeling that you need to start sewing up some of that enormous stash?
- Because it has been on your to-do list forever and you just want it done?
- To try out a new skill/challenge as part of your sewing self-education?
- Wardrobe gap or need?
- To justify the money you have already spent on patterns?
As always what have I missed?
