Anyone else being a sloth?Posted: January 10, 2012
I have all sorts of plans for things to do – and I have been sewing a little (honest) – but I am really struggling to do anything useful. The house is clean enough, we are eating home cooked (but very easy) meals, and I keep shuffling the fabric about. I’m sure that once I really get going I will be as productive as I can be – it’s just getting going.
I have been sewing a UFO. I was ashamed to find the lilac jeans (again) under a pile of stuff so decided that they had to be the first project of the year. They are coming together quite well and as long as I am using the 30 minute sewing system I am doing OK. There are no photographs yet but I will have some soon.
After my last post Libby asked about my sewing room. I have never thought to show my space – all those online seem to be very well planned, swish, perfect places. Mine just sort of happened. I needed space while I completed my City and Guilds qualification where I could close the door away from the family – but we had small kids and not a lot of money so the fittings were pretty basic. Since then I have just grown it into an area where I work happily and despite appearances have everything I need in easy reach (and where I expect it to be) so I have not felt the need to do anything major in there. A larger work table would be nice when I work on big projects – but most of the time it’s just fine. For anyone who has identified the boxes I store my threads in – I didn’t eat all of the chocolates myself !
