I’m trying to start sewing seriously…and for me that means hunkering down in the sewing room and being able to have at least a couple hours at a time to sew. (I can’t buy any fabric if I’m busy sewing!) Now I know that it is a luxury, but I do have my own sewing room. In that room I have a small tv with a VCR (!) and a DVD player. I pretty much have that tv on the whole time that I am in the room because I like having the voices. I also think that it is good for me because it forces me to look up every once in a while to relieve my eyes.
In the past week, I have gotten some work done on the pink quilt that I am making for niece. It’s pretty large and has a lot of small pieces (do I sew any other way?!) so it’s a little slow going…but steadily it is coming together. It’s up on my new design wall (I’ll show pictures of that soon!) so it stays organized and well ironed. Love it!
But I have to admit that I was waiting for a couple of tv series on DVD to come in the mail before seriously sewing because I kind of need the double motivation of the tv series and the prospect of finishing a quilt to get me going. I rarely sew with just music…I like to have something that I can stop and look at.
So how do you all sew? In silence? In chaos? With music? With a tv going? Is sewing your only time of peace or is it always full of this and that?
