Wow! What a girl can do with a whole extra hour in her day! I love daylight savings time because kids don't have a clue...they still get up at the same time only it is 5am instead of 6am. Super! Sunday afforded me an opportunity that I have been waiting for going on 3 weeks now. Some serious sewing.
By serious, I mean pulling your hair back in a bun with a headband serious.
Serious sewing means setting the mood for creativity, and clearing off all the unnecessary clutter. Careful though, that last step may eat up all your time :)
(that cup was filled with hot cider- for about 2 minutes apparently Hannah didn't get the memo that stated I was doing some serious sewing ALONE.)
Serious sewing is usually devoted to projects that will be given away. When I sew for myself I wing it. Everything is a bit more reckless. But, when you are doing some serious sewing- there is much more measuring and careful cutting, more pinning and ironing. More thought and planning are involved thus more concentration is required. One has to be in the right mood for serious sewing. Tedious, not adventurous.
Here is what came out of my "serious sewing"
Two lovely slings for two lovely mamas. They provided the fabric-I provided the seriousness (and the sewing). Whew! Sewing a big rectangle takes a lot of concentration these days. The last couple of projects were the "I-am-flooring-the-presser-foot-and-it-is-still-not-going-fast-enough" kind of projects. (I promise that I don't drive like a sew- at least most of the time). So, slowing down, taking one's time, really plotting out the course pays off. Something that actually turns out! Serious sewing.
