The advice to take it easy was wise, wiser than me. Tried to do some things in the sewing room yesterday and was sore. I am definitely going to have to take it easier.
I don't remember ever not being able to sew. Even when I shouldn't I have been able to sneak in a seam here and there.
This is hard. I realized too that for non sewers every day is like this. What do they do with their time and their heads?
This is a challenge and I am going to use it to catch up on unfinished knitting and button sewing and course prep.
I like to knit but it is something I do when I can't sew. Like in the car, or while visiting, or while watching the news or the tube. I got to tell you I find it a bit repetitive and slow which is why I do it when something else is going on
Don't worry. I'll live. I believe there are many people in the world who have not sewn for a couple of weeks and held it together, led productive lives, and not driven their families crazy. Surely there are.
Now tell me what are your other activities? Do you knit, crochet, scrapbook? I am open to all new non impact ideas.
Of course there is always online fabric shopping...
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi
