No Time to Sew......

How do you handle no sewing time?  Do you shop for more fabric?  More notions?  Patterns?  Sewing magazines?  Head to Pinterest and get ideas for garments? Head to your favorite sewing blogs for inspiration?   Look in your closet and evaluate what you need?   Just get grumpy?  Nervous or frustrated?

Well, I haven't had time to sew a garment since February 20th, that is a long time for me.  We have been busy with all sorts of things.  I have been at Paige's house, then wedding planning and shopping for Erin (May 26th will be here before we know it), district basketball, work (2 busy jobs is keeping me very busy), new flooring in the family room (moving things out and putting back).  All great things and much more important than sewing at my machine.

My answer to the above questions would be Pinterest, blogs and become anxious, then of course dream about my sewing.

I am happy to report, yesterday I was able to sew!  Hurray, I worked on a Hot Patterns Rivera jacket from red ponte, it is part of my Wardrobe Basic sewalong.  It does take me some time to get back into the rhythm of sewing again (like, why did I just stitch that?  topstitching is crooked, where is the seam ripper) , but my machine was humming and my jacket started to take shape.

So what do you do when you can't sew?  Leave a comment or answer the poll (created just for this post) - whe do you do when you can't sew.
