Gads, it feels like I’m a beginner at the sewing machine today. I hate, hate, hate sewing to meet deadlines. For good reason too, it seems.
I have 4 identical shirts to complete by Thursday AM. Shouldn’t be a problem. I’ve done the same pattern before, although it has been since last summer…..and my brain cells are diminishing in what seems to be a daily basis. However………..this afternoon found me knee deep in dumb mistakes. In my defense, this fabric is more than slinky…..and it’s black; making it oh, so hard to see. (old eyes here, you know?)
I have taken out at least the equivalent of one of the shirts! Hoping daylight and a fresh pot of coffee in the AM, make this go smoother on the last 2 shirts. So, it seems deadlines create havoc with my creativity, my routine and otherwise simple tasks! I quit this evening, after getting 2 of the shirts to what I call……..hanging up status. That is……they are now on hangers.
With fingers crossed, candles lit and prayers sent up to the heavens, my aim is to finish the 4 of these lovelies tomorrow…..as I’ve got appointments most of the day Wednesday.
And,………..I need to remind myself NOT to take on jobs with deadlines; they ruin my fun!
