Ahh...the lull before the busy season! It's good to feel rich with time-and time is certainly my currency. While previously scrambling to get loads of stuff done for Stitches West, I now feel queenly in dictating to myself what I can 'choose' to do each day. Basically I am in denial because I still have loads to do!
This is the time before we order our baby chicks for the season, the students are in a mad dash to finish their lines, my taxes are due and I am frantically sewing for two major events.
I have been waking up each day this past week asking myself, Should I work on that new design?, Should I work on my taxes?, Should I cut and sew Pattern Holders or Clear Wristlets? Should I figure out an easier way to sew my Pocket Buckets and Project Bags? Should I set up that computer to make pattern printouts? The true answer is yes to all of them! Because wouldn't my life be easier in the coming months if I got a little bit of this done now? All in good time....
Of course I want to do the fun stuff.....like the new Interchangeable Needle Case design and an idea I have been asked to re-visit: Notebook Pages that hold needles in a binder. When I go on a run ('if' is more like it lately), I usually like to mentally design things as I jog. I used to listen to audiobooks but now I love sewing in my head-something I also do to fall asleep.
For now, I will work on a little of this and a little of that. My motto is Chip Away At It (best to learn this when you become a parent)! Then everything eventually gets done.
I'd rather not scramble!
