(well sketching my sewing machine quickly before starting)
First time I have done any sewing since I cleared out and reorganised my studio(still a major work in progress) so now rather than working away in a cramped corner I have a big white table surface and some organisation behind. And as usual I find myself sewing out of season… a summery looking dress but for a special purpose. (do you know what that might be? -some of you that hang out in a certain facebook group might have seen a reference to it)
I was going to write that I thought this sketch was a good warmup to get my creative juices pumping… but I am not sure that it is good for sewing…. I need calm, careful, slow precision… a slow chill out approach would have been better….but then I would be sketching all day and not sewing….
… as it turned out I had a lovely day sewing – making something with my hands other than making art was a lovely change. Next week some knitting? I didn’t actually finish the dress today so it will be sewing during the week…it must be finished by Wednesday!
