When do you find time to sew?
I always want to be able to go and do some sewing, start another project or finish one more like!! But with two part time jobs, two children, a husband and a dog to look after how do you fit it all in?
I try to do my jobs around the house first (don’t mention the ironing) so that I feel less guilty about hiding out in the sewing room, aka our conservatory! But then feel guilty that I should be doing something with my girls. That said they are now 12 and 9 so are a little more self-sufficient!
During the week, by the time everything is done in the evenings I’m usually too tired to start any sewing and curl up in front of the TV instead! Weekends are normally my best time but if we’re out and about the time has gone and before you know it another week has passed!
I find that I struggle sometimes to actually start sewing but once I’m there I really enjoy it. Don’t forget it’s still a new hobby for me so maybe I’m not quite as passionate about it yet as some of you are. It’s not become second nature, give it time!
Don’t get me wrong, I love doing it. As you already know I’ve signed up for my first “Craft Swap” which is great and I had time this afternoon and set to making my gifts. I’m really pleased with how they turned out and will show you all once I have sent them to my Craft Swap partner in a few weeks time.
Maybe little and often is the best way forward? Try not to attempt too much in one sitting?
How do you manage your sewing time?
