Today was a day with much time on the phone and on the computer. Arranging details for upcoming events, paying bills, scheduling things. Frustrating all.
And, seemingly accomplishing nothing.
But then I went into my sewing room for an hour or so. I cut up some fabric and sewed it back together. Now I’m myself again.
It was a simple design…one I’ve done before, but just refining the size of the block for another project. But the pressing of the fabric, the slicing with a sharp rotary cutter, the sewing back together again, the hum of the machine. Is there anyone who doesn’t find this process comforting?
I know, there are people who break out in hives just hearing about this. But those are people who like to clean house and pull weeds, I think. I love to sew!
I think I should reiterate that I was using a really simple forgiving pattern that does not involve matching intersections or tedious measuring. Though those kinds of projects are rewarding too, today I needed improvisational bliss! I oversized the pieces, sewed with a casual seam allowance, and trimmed to fit. Pure pleasure!
