I am working in small increments and progress is barely perceptible. I promised to try to sew 20 minutes out of every day, my machine is on the kitchen table, all the pieces are on the counter, but life gets in the way or should I say my record collection gets in the way?
This is one of my most irritating habit : my record collection needs to be in order before I start anything, ain't that weird? One of the few things that I need be done before going into the "sewing zone", is making sure my iTunes collection is shipshape. I need all the little pictures for the songs and albums and my chosen songlist, usually iTunes DJ, Genius is not imaginative enough, culled from songs I don't want to hear on that day and then I can start sewing.
I can sew around children, dishes not done, dust everywhere, hair in battle, legs unshaved but I need a clean iTunes. What's your idiosyncrasy?
Fortunately, if I am not sewing a lot, some people have. Self-Stitched-September is in full swing. It's an entire Flickr Pool of inspiration. There are as many ways you can make a garment as there are seamstresses out there. Sewing is infinity, now that's a concept!
