That is how I will be running to my sewing machine this weekend!
This week was pretty eye opening for me as far as understanding how I could go weeks or months without sewing. Now with the daily goal of sewing I could pinpoint that dreaded time in the day when I realized that no sewing is going to take place. I’ve learned that I only have a few windows of time, but it is easy for family members to gobble them up.
Monday: I can only hope that hubby will have to save the world via Call of Duty after dinner.
Tuesday: Same as Monday.
Wednesday: This day rotates bi-weekly. One week I have from 4am-6am and 9am-2:00 provided I don’t need to leave the house. Hubby goes to sleep early on work days and since all of the machines are in the bedroom that cuts out evening sewing until Sunday. I often think about maybe sewing at the kitchen table, but unplugging and moving the machines seems more trouble than it’s worth. The other week, Wednesday is just like Monday.
Thursday: 4am-6am and 9am-2pm
Friday: 4am-6am and 9am-2pm
Saturday: Glorious Saturday!! The day I don’t have to take the girls to school. The day we usually order Chinese or pizza so I don’t have to stop and cook diner. The last day of hubby’s work week, so Call of Duty is almost guaranteed when he gets home. Saturdays are my sewing bff!
Sunday: I have three girls with mid-back to waist length hair, so usually this hair day. I can sometimes squeeze some sewing in there, but I don’t bank on it.
So as you can imagine this week must have sucked.
I only got to sew on Saturday 1/31. I still managed to do 3 hours because I was putting together my January Burda Challenge garment. I was hoping to at least finish it on the last day of January, but the sizing was off. I made a size smaller than my measurements since I was working with a ponte instead of suede, but it is still too big. I had to take it in at least 2″ from the knee down, and about an inch from the knee up. They are not kidding when they say high waisted. They sit under my chest. I’m working hard so they don’t turn into a waddler.
Total Time: 3 hours
No new patterns or fabrics purchased.
Alrighty folks, let’s hope this week is a little more productive.
