Uninspired

Some days, all I can think about is what I'm going to make next, or how I'm going to proceed on a current project.

And then some days, all I can do is think about sewing. As in, I think about it a lot and somehow never actually get anything done. Oops!

Part of the problem is, as I've shared before, that I do not enjoy sewing as such. I like thinking about sewing, imagining what I'll make, planning, picking fabrics, problem-solving, occasionally even fitting initial patterns, and wearing the finished product. There's a significant gap between most of that and the final item--the entire construction process is not something I do for the joy of it.

So on days like today where I just finished a project (new chemise--photos to come) and haven't yet decided what to do next, it's soooo much easier to curl up in one corner of the couch with coffee and the celtic music station that Gwendolyn created for me on Pandora and...not sew.

Yep. Not sewing. Just thinking about it. That counts, right?
