Time for garment four of my new workout collection, a pair of yoga capri leggings that I also plan to wear as lounge wear. I’ve been on a sewing roll lately, spending entire Saturdays pretty much glued to my sewing machines, whipping up everything from a running dress and a sports bra to my daughter’s graduation dress. I have kinda of a love/hate relationship with those long sewing sessions. It’s wonderful to step into that bubble and being able to make a lot of progress in one sitting. On the other hand I do feel like my life outside sewing suffers a bit, and after such long sessions I’m absolutely spent and have no energy for other things. I think I need to do a better job pacing myself, but once I get going and have the time, it is very hard for me to stop.
How do you pace your sewing? Do you do bite size chunks or prefer long sewing sessions? And how do you know when it’s time to step away?
