I was working my way through my huge number of unread blog posts on Wednesday and saw this one from Meris of The Fabric Alchemist about how she’s going to have a Me Making March, where she spends some time every day doing something crafty. I think that’s a really good idea so I’m copying her.
The most productive sewing spurt I’ve ever had was at the end of last year when I was doing my Christmas present crafting and I think it was because I was doing a bit here and a bit there. Stick a PDF together one day, cut out a couple of projects the next, sew one up the day after, that sort of thing. It would be nice to be able to spend a whole day at the weekend sewing but life gets in the way and means that sewing plans quite often get bumped. So I think allocating half an hour or so every day is a more achievable way to get through some of the many projects I have planned.
Technically I’ve already failed at my Me Making March as I didn’t do any sewing last night and I’m currently full of Thai food and gin so I don’t know if any sewing will happen tonight either. But I’m not going to beat myself up too much for missing the odd day here and there, a general consistency will do me.
I’m trying out working on multiples projects at the same time so I have a Dixie DIY Ballet dress nearly complete, a Seamwork Mesa dress hack at the toile stage and Ginger jeans/trousers traced but not cut out yet. I’m hoping that by doing a step or two most evenings I can get them all finished by the end of the month.
Anyone else want to join in? Or is this how the rest of you sew all the time and you’re rolling your eyes at me because I’m such a noob?
