Even a few days ago I never thought I would get here, but today I am sewing. (I must admit to mending last night. Something that needs to be done from time to time and which involves using a sewing machine, but really - who actually considers it to be sewing?)
It feels great to be sewing! I am sewing by stealth today. That is because there is still a lot to do to organise the house. So, here's how sewing by stealth works.
Sew a little
Work a little
Sew a little
You get the picture! "A little" differs depending on your day and reasons for stealth. Sometimes I work by stealth, you know, when you would rather just be sewing (every day, right?) and you slot work in between sewing. Of course today I would rather just sew, but I have a goal to get my laundry completely unpacked and organised too. (The laundry room here is much smaller than the last house so after I get the washer and the dryer in there's not much room left for my bench - try sorting and folding 6 people's clothes without one - or for storage. The shoe polish, the cleaning products, the tea towels and cloths - no room in the kitchen for that, the lightbulbs ..... the list goes on!) So I sew a little, then sort in my laundry. Eventually it all gets done and I don't get sick of any one project. Today my sewing by stealth is accompanied by Tim Gunn and a little "Project Runway". Gotta love a sewing show to inspire you!
So, back to the sewing! (Pretty sure blogging wasn't included in the model above. Wonder how I fitted it in?)
