What If Wednesday, A Day Late

Not much sewing going on around here. I haven’t been motivated to work on current projects. I thought about starting a new project, but haven’t come up with the energy to do that either. I don’t even know if something new would hold my attention.

Rather than hang out in this uncreative place until the feeling moves on, I decided to try something. Anything. The first steps are always the hardest.

What if I force myself to go into the sewing room every night for ten or fifteen minutes? Sewing is not required. I just have to be in there and stay awake. I gave myself permission to stare at the wall or refold my fabric or look at a book. What I do doesn’t matter.

I will put myself in a creative space, knowing that I have a very hard time sitting and doing absolutely nothing. Either my sewing room will become cleaner, or I will sew something. I’m even willing to sew something ugly. Anything goes.

I’m heading into the sewing room right now to see what happens.

    I loved your blog post! I find it hard to go into my sewing room sometimes. I always seem to find myself stitching in the living room. Sometimes the sewing room is too much isolation for me. I started out sewing using the dining room table and sometimes miss that. I like your idea of going in the sewing room for 10-15 minutes a day without any expectations. I will try that to see if it works for me.
