The purpose of this sewing vacay is to totally immerse myself in, to wallow in, to overflow my soul with creating...I'm treating this sewing vacay like it's a sewing camp or retreat. You know where you gather together with a group of your peers or friends and devote a specific amount of time to sewing. Yes this is what I'm doing this week! I'm being totally dedicated to my craft...
And in that vein, I have a goal for this week...to finish one garment per day. Just one...I think this is doable. My list for sewing this week is a mix of simple, TNT and one or two new patterns. I've planned this like a general planning a major offensive on the battlefield! Supplies are on hand, Mountain Dew and food are stocked...I've even laid in a fresh supply of batteries for the digital camera to document the process. But most importantly, I have a list and a full fabric closet to bring this to fruition.
So starting tomorrow morning, I will prewash fabric, cut and alter patterns and generally prepare to sew. I will sew every day except for Friday...with a hard stop at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday evening. Stopping then will allow me to calmly put everything away, vacuum the threads and drippings off my carpet, and slowly decompress for my re-entry into my work week.
There will be a limited amount of computer time...I don't want anything to intrude on my dedicated sewing time...I will, however, keep you updated on my progress! *LOL* I mean really that's part of the fun...sharing with all of you the struggles, the challenges and the satisfying results!
So let the sewing begin!
