This and That
As my kids get older, I thought I might actually find it easier to sew. Not the case. I think it must be my mindset, because I find myself playing short-order cook all afternoon. I love my kids and want to spend time with them! This time every year though, I start feeling really anxious because I haven't sewn anything for weeks! I am driven to create and when I can't, it is very frustrating. School starts back in 2 weeks and shortly after, my sewing classes will start too. I'm looking forward to this new beginning. In some ways, the beginning of school each fall feels like January 1st to me. A time to reset intentions and goals. A time to clear out deadwood and get back to (or closer to) what I really want to be doing. Starting in 2 weeks, I'll get to sew again for a few hours each day. The rest of my day will be spent enjoying my kids, helping with homework, driving kids places, housework, cooking and dish washing etc. How do you fit sewing into your life?
