I need new pyjamas.

The effort of hunting through stores

hurts my head.

I have fabric, thread, pattern

and machines.

It’d only take an hour to make,

But just taking

the serger out of the box

seems too great a challenge.

I think finishing my last novel

was more exhausting than

it seemed.

  1. Exactly how I feel right now!

    Maybe you should start visualizing a spa weekend. Or maybe that’s just what I want. I feel there’s nothing wrong with me that a couple hours of full body deep tissue massage wouldn’t cure and a spa weekend would be even better.

    • I had a very intense massage yesterday. I’ll feel better when I’ve got my second workshop polished. And perhaps after I’ve done some nice meditative sewing… 😉 I just have to get the serger out of the box. 😉

    Sounds like a great change of pace. Productive, too, if you can just get the serger out of the box…

    Today I made my daughter a tiny little dress for her little stuffed animal, a bunny she named “Bunny Baby.” It took me three hours. It involved lining, interfacing, top stitching…Three hours to make a tiny dress. Granted, I had to invent a pattern by taking the little thing’s measurements…but three hours? Anyway, it felt good to sew. Working on a tiny project didn’t seem like this big daunting involved thing, and it ended up being a way to psych myself into doing more sewing. Get that serger out, and then take some pictures please! I want to see the fabric, the serging and the final project. That’s not too tall an order, is it?
