Finding Time to Sew

      No Comments on Finding Time to Sew

So I am having issues finding time (and motivation) to sew at the moment. I find its hard to sit down at the machine knowing that there is so much else that should be done (DIY etc) and I have so little time. I am currently counting down the hours till I leave again, I’m off at 6 in the morning tomorrow for 4 days and then off again on Sunday evening… 
 
I had been thinking that I might be able to participate in Lladybird’s OAL and I think sewing the dress would only take me a couple of days at max, I even have the material for it! But I am a long way from finishing the Jumper, even though I cheated a bit and was thinking of using the one that Nan gave me which was part completed in the first place… 

Still so much to go…

Sometimes I feel busts of energy to sew and I get something done, I have a few new floaty T-shirts from the pattern I made from a RTW top the other day. Mostly this was necessitated by the hot weather we are having here atm.

First Version.

I have been enjoying wearing them and made myself a lovely new PJ top from the pattern and some gorgeous Viscose fabric from our local Fabric Land which is one of the nicest tops I have worn for a while, I never want to take it off in the morning… 
I have some jersey lined up to try another one out of when I can find the time, but the pattern might need a little modification to cope with the stretch.

Over all at the moment I feel like my ‘time off’ should be spent relaxing and not trying to finish something. It doesn’t help that I’m shattered at the moment which is reducing my motivation to do anything at all…

I have two and a half days off at the end of the week which I will have to try and make the most of. Does anyone have any tips on how to make the most of limited sewing time?
