Let me start saying this is me raising my hands up and realising I cannot do everything.
Since project sewn I haven’t stopped sewing. I mentioned that my machine went for a check up service beginning of april, returning to me just before Easter. When I tried to used it, I felt it wasn’t right and took it back. My gut feeling was right. The thread cutter was broken. To say I was a bit gutted is an understatement. She was gone for a month and came back without been completely fixed? WFT! I am still without my baby ( maybe I’m feeling lonely without her) and been sewing with a second machine (very cheap model I’m taking with me to Brasil) just to keep going.
My work in progress has increased to a level I never experience before. A mix of sewing commitments- It’s pattern testing season, my machine problems and late fabric deliveries.
Sadly I even missed feedback deadline. Have you guys seen the nettie. My beau is waiting for me to finish and spill all the beans. Adding injury to the wounds, everyones version is so fab so I cannot wait to finish mine. *social pressure alert!
If you think 10 wips aren’t driving me crazy enough, the unblogged items are staring at me. They are: 2 BHL Flora and one Georgia dress, a very cool french blouse made on the most delicious turquoise washed linen, my rain-florest datura and a floral maxi dress to photograph and write blog posts. Oh, I planned to write a tutorial on ‘how to make the datura top into a dress’ for VH, as part of promoting my class. BTW, class was awesome. Teaching is so rewarding.
Oh man! You don’t want to see my to do project list! I didn’t sewn anything yet to the meet up and I’m considering not to and just raid my closet. Got to find something clean as mmmay is making my current handmade closet work. Loads of old makes are too big right now.
Took me a while to realise how burned out I’m feeling and recently saying “no” took a lot courage as there are a lot of cool stuff going on but its making me feel better. I will just focus on fulling what I got committed and take a blogging/making break. In which during these time I will be indulging friends and family during my 30 days stay in Brasil. You will be catching up on my over-productivity on pre written posts. (hopefully I can get some posts pre written)
Till then, slow on the content to get my sewing life balance in order.
Anyone else felt overcommitted recently?
