Do you have more trouble sewing in the summer than other times during the year? I often feel pulled in many different directions during the summer months. The garden always beckons, reading a good book looks inviting, grilling something yummy for dinner, walking in the nearby Botanical Garden, having coffee with a friend at an outdoor cafe – they all compete for my precious sewing minutes from June through September! Lazy, hazy days of summer? Bah! I am running pretty much from dawn till dusk these days.
While I was away in NYC last weekend, it seems the weeds had a growing party. My yard needed some serious attention, and the cupboard was pretty bare too. I have spent the past few days trying to catch up on laundry, gardening, cooking, and even a little housework. I did manage to fix the coverstitching on the sleeve hems of a knit top…but I think that may have been the extent of my sewing accomplishments last week. Maybe I need to challenge myself to get something fun sewn this week.
How about you? Are you getting much sewing done? Inspire me!
