I’ve found sewing to be a source of respite from my busy lifestyle. I haven’t sewn since I finished my baby quilt (which my friend adored). I had been busy with work, work travel, studying, errands and life in general. Frankly, I feel like my creative energy inside is ready to burst.
I needed to take a break from my marathon weekend studying, so I went to my cave in the basement earlier this evening to revisit a project I had started. I was also thumbing through my sewing books, which got me even more excited to see potential projects.
During interviews, you may get asked a question like, “What is your greatest weakness?” Mine would be wanting to do too much. The follow up question from your interviewer would then be, “What have you done to improve this shortcoming?” What I’ve done is I make lists.
With work, I am queen of lists. When I first met my husband, he often complained to me about all the things he had to do but had a hard time tracking them. My suggestion was to make a list. The man has been making lists since then because it helped him put things into perspective, delegate, and most importantly, not forget them. (I should provide him with a list of my ever-growing ‘Things I Covet‘).
Having said that I haven’t created any lists for my sewing and craft projects. This post is to serve as the start of my project lists. I feel overwhelmed with all the exciting and interesting projects I’m finding, so a list will definitely help keep me on track.
You may notice a lot of the projects are baby/child oriented. No, I’m not having a child. I have a lot of friends who are becoming or are new parents. I enjoy seeing their reactions when they realize I made the gifts.
1. Baby bibs
3. Diaper bag
4. Baby booties
5. One quilt from the book City Quilts (the one on the cover)
6. Another bib
7. Baby tights
I’m going to add this list as a “tab” to my blog. Hopefully some items will be marked as in-progress after my exam in August.
