Snail paced sewing

So, if I sew in daily 20 minute increments, I *will* eventually finish something. But it's frustrating after years of being able to spend entire days in the sewing room.

I will adjust. I will, I will, I will.

And, maybe one day I will adjust enough that the housework won't be demanding so much time and I can up my 20 minutes to a bit more.

But, in the meantime, I've traced a couple of patterns (and lost a piece somehow...guess I'll just have to trace it again) and sewn a bit on my white campshirt.

School starts Monday, though, so I'm hoping that with the return of routine I can get a little more time.

Fabric and inspiration abound! But...time...oh, that's precious...


  1. This is why I haven't been getting much sewing done. When I sew. I want to sit down and SEW! Like you, I could sew in 20 or 30 minute time slots, but it seems to require a completely different mind-set. Make since?

  2. My sewing has also been a bit slow. Sometimes when I get home from work I find it hard to make time to sew. I'm making slow progress on my jacket, though. And, of course, the weekend is coming! Can't wait to see your next lovely creation!
