today, i've been hearing (and feeling) a lot about "running out of steam."
last night i finished K's mixed up dress (which she happily wore to school today!), got the girlies in bed, and then stared at the sewing machine for a while.
when i can't decide what to work on, but i know i want to work on something, well, i get antsy. i wander around the house, i put away half of my laundry, i go through my stash, i re-examine patterns (maybe even get one out, look at it, and then put it back), i sit on the couch for three minutes, i check on the cats, i go sit on the front porch, drop my iphone and shatter the screen. ok, that last part just happened once... last night. major bummer. i say to myself, "i'll just take a break." i (dramatically) announce my break and sit back down on the couch. this lasts approximately four minutes.
and then i cut out some pajamas (like we all knew i would). bunnies for B and owls for K.
tonight's plan: get some quality sewing time in early so i can relax in time for project runway, and maybe decide what projects to focus on this coming weekend. i'm looking forward to more sewing time without this whole full-time job thing getting in the way ;)
hang in there! CHOO! CHOO!
