Choosing sewing projects
I may be about to throw that last one out the window, though. I have been thinking the past week or so that I want to learn to sew better, and one way to do that is to sew things that have techniques I want to learn. Also, I think just sewing more will help.
I have boxes and boxes of fabric that I've acquired for free from my mother-in-law or very cheap from thrift stores. I'm going to try to sew more, and not worry about whether Tiger Lily needs another dress or whether I need another apron. I have all the materials I need at my fingertips. Why not go ahead and practice while my kids are still young and will wear anything I sew just because I sewed it? And if Tiger Lily ends up with fifteen dresses, well, okay.
Now if only the housework would magically get done while I'm busy sewing! Why does life have to be all about balance?
