My sewing machine is calling me

A big, positive life change (more on that another time) means I have more time for sewing, and yet I’m still on my healthy living plan and losing weight. (Although the big life change did throw me off course for a bit.)

I had previously posted that losing weight has put my sewing on hold.

I can’t take it!

I’ve decided that even if I make clothes right now that are too big in two months, it will still be worth the effort. I’ll have learned a new pattern or a new technique or how to handle a different fabric. Every project is an opportunity to learn.

When I get my weight to an optimum healthy place (28 pounds to go!), I will have more sewing skills than before.

So I am going to sew. I may focus on clothing that doesn’t neet precise fitting (a snappy new robe, anyone) or maybe some home improvement projects (window treatments to complement the blinds in the bathroom) or maybe a cape!

But I have time, I have a modest fabric stash and I have the desire.

So I am going to sew!
