Finding My Way Back

October 19, 2014

It’s been way too long since I spent long afternoons immersed in projects of one sort or another. The problem is even bigger since my seasons – and time spent indoors – is reversed in Florida. With Fall comes nicer weather when I can spend more time outdoors, and therefore, less time on projects. The problem is, the holidays get me thinking about everything I want to do! Couple this with how much time my day job is consuming, and I have a dilemma.

I am determined to get back into my studio even if it’s in little chunks of time. To do so, I am letting go of lots of time eaters (unfulfilling volunteer time, TV, housework – ha!) and focusing on just those key things that make my life happy. That in itself is a project! Some of the things I have lined up for projects are to experiment with design elements applied to tried and true basic patterns, finish favorite projects, and start some new things I’ve never done. For example, I love my perfect tee shirt pattern, therefore I will use that as a starting point to add in sheer panels, longer sides, a fuller silhouette, or do some color blocking. Then there’s the non sewing projects such as sand bowls and sun catchers. Add to that my Craftsy classes I’m dying to try, and I have lots to do in my studio! It’s time to get back in there.

I can’t wait to get started!
