Some times when I sew I feel like I have the attention span of a 3 year old. Right now, I’m still working on the Pants Project, slowly making headway with the SBA, but today I started a completely new project of sewing skirts for work. I have nothing to wear to this new job. I go to work looking like I just left a backyard bar-b-que. Hence the need for new skirts. This is one I’m working on now.
I bought the print fabric in Victoria BC a couple of years ago. The turquoise is from several years ago from a long since closed fabric store. Looking at how well the colors go together I’m so glad I didn’t give it away or something.
But, how quickly my thoughts move on to some other project I want to start. I want to make a bathroom rug, I’m thinking of the upcoming fall wardrobe and this new vintage pattern I got is crying out loud to be made NOW. My thoughts are running to Tenneesee Williams type hot summer nights where the only comfortable clothing is a slip dress. But, I don’t want to start until I at least get the pants and halter dress done. Stay focused….
There is a Denver Sewing Collective meeting coming up, I’d like to have made some progress on my projects that I keep dutifully keep lugging to the meetings. How many projects do you juggle? Do you find that works for you? Or are you a one project at a time person.
