I’ve been having a hard time getting into a sewing routine. And it’s not because I’m distracted by Little Dude. He’s still napping like a champ. I’m not taking advantage of the opportunity to sew. Instead I take the time he’s asleep to either get some chores done, go out for a walk (don’t worry, I bring him along) or try to relax by baking or just doing nothing. But what about sewing? It’s relaxing. Yes. It definitely can be. But it’s been so long since I’ve done it regularly that I spend more and more time thinking about it, prepping to do it, than doing it.
So lately my creative juices are being poured into baking and cooking. Because, you know, why not.
So yeah, that’s a lot of food. Good thing we like to eat 😉
As much as I love to bake and cook I miss sewing. And as of today I feel like I’m back to it wholeheartedly and it feels right. When I made last month’s circle skirt I felt stressed and didn’t enjoy the process. And to no surprise I stayed away from the sewing room (and my new serger, thanks awesome hubbie!). But today I went back to the sewing table and truly loved working on my project. I took my time and really enjoyed each step, not rushing once. So tomorrow I look forward to sharing my newest garment, nothing fancy, but exciting for me nonetheless.
Let’s officially call this a comeback.
