I read an article on the internet [cant remember where,sorry...just one of those browsing days]. anyway, a lady was saying, that she sit aside 15 minutes of "me time" every evening. She said, it became known to the family, that it was her 15 minutes.. She said, she had no time to sew and was very upset ,because she couldnt make anything. She said, you would be surprised how much you could accomplish with a set 15 minutes. She also said that some days ,she would get started and maybe get to squeeze in 30 minutes..But even on her busy days...she would go to her sewing room and have her "me time".And sometimes it was only to go and choose her fabric or whatever..
I have never done this...but the lady made it sound very interesting.. And if your life and chores doesnt leave you any sewing time..It might be worth a try??? Happy Sewing..and hope we all find time for our 'ME TIME".
Hope it works Amy.. and you are so right...we HAVE to do what mama says..Hahaha
Let me know..how it works..We may all be trying it.
I think I'd have a problem doing that as for the other 23hrs and 45 all I could think about would be those precious 15 minutes!
I do it on a reward basis. If i've done a certain amount of work, I can sew.
But I don't have to juggle children or too much work yet! Lord knows how you all can produce such fab things!
Reward Cathe...for------------ Hard work!!! Sticking with her goal----------- Making some beautiful garments----------All while doing a very demanding full time job!!!
and of course...for taking that 15 minute coffe break.hahhaha]
My rewards are normally housework or uni work based. I write 2,000 words. I can sew, I do 4 loads of washing... I can sew etc. But then I put the boring bits of sewing in as housework sometimes. For example. Cutting interfacing pieces I've left to wither and ironing them. One of my least favorite sewing jobs!
