The last few weeks have been worse than normal . The pain has dulled every sense and dragged my disposition a bit into the dumps.
I had started to get quite grumpy about not being able to sew….but!, as I always try to find a detour to my roadblocks I think I came up with one. If I can not get down to the sewing table and finish cutting that Ginger skirt out, I will get my own Look Book started.
I will get pictures and textures and things that I love and and think about what are the top five things I really want in my wardrobe. Not anything to do with a sew-along or contest, or even what someone says is the “must-have” for Fall. Just me. Five pieces that I really want to wear. Then, I can pluck through my favorite fabric sites and find the perfect match for my list. If I can not move too much, I can still imagine different dart placements and fabric pairings and take the time to organize my projects.
I may not be able to sew just yet but my mind will always work….so I must give it something to do. I will give myself a project that makes me look forward to something, keeps me occupied and maybe by the time it is done I will be ready to get those pieces cut!
Take care! I will be back soon and share my five “must haves”!
