I get asked the "how do you find the time to sew?" question a lottttttttttttt.
I’m blessed to have a dedicated sewing space where I can leave my stuff out and come back to it throughout the day. The day I took these pictures I cut fat quarters while my youngest 2 kids slept…and in between making lunch and replacing band-aids I cut out some more. So by the end of the day I had all my fat quarters cut into pieces for a quilt.
And if you looked under my cutting table you’d see this:
My oldest likes to get out his art stuff and have his quiet time while I sew…I should really get him a table.
I rarely find a big chunk of time to sew while my kids are up. So my kids go to bed at 8, we tidy up the house, and then I usually sew or do computer work for an hour or more.
This little gal is on my hip ALL day long…so unless I can do it 1 handed…it doesn’t get done while she’s awake. Which is OK…cause I’m in love with her.
By finding small bits of time here and there to cut, make a block, or sew a row together…you’ll be surprised how much you can get done. You might even find you’re more productive when you know you only have 15 minutes to sew like mad!
What’s most important is that you find what works for you, and don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Which is hard…I know. :)
I saw that on facebook and it made me laugh….and it made me glad that I live in this day and age. I certainly wouldn’t get any sewing done if I had to get my "hair in order" before I sewed!
