Having come back from my holidays barely a week ago, I’ve had time to reflect on what I want to do with myself and my sewing. Having finished my academic studies a while ago and being in a steady although somewhat energetically draining job, i’m finding that I’m not making as much as I used to. I’m not sure if this is because I have truly lost my sewing mojo or if it’s that as I have progressed and try to make better quality garments, I’m put off by how much work needs to be done to finish things when as I was starting out, I just used to hash things together, so things were a lot quicker!
(This is the cat equivalent of how I feel after work 🙂 )
Well, whatever the reason, I really want to increase my productivity and I have so much fabric and patterns that to be quite honest I don’t know what to do with half of it! And I know I am absolutely useless at finishing things and working to a deadline, but I thought I might just try and see if I could enter something like the Pattern Review Pattern Stash contest or maybe get in a last minute entry into the Eva Dress competition – which I always think of doing and then never get round to doing… Well, that’s it, I’m publicly throwing my hat into the ring and to be honest, if I can get one entry into the PR contest, i’d be happy with that – let alone 35 items….
Any other interesting sewing challenges/sewalongs at the moment anyone would like to recommend?
