Getting back in the zone of making is important for me, and I am making it a priority this month. After all, it is all May is about making. So, every day this month, I plan on sewing for 1 hour. Hopefully, that will land up being more than just 1 hour.
I have some deadlines coming up, so to balance the must do projects one day a week should be dedicated to a fun project. I am thinking of items like finishing my makers tote, playing with a couple of ideas, throw in some improv. projects like this one:
Including this time for play, provides me an avenue to get the ideas in my head out. I tend to over think things and if I can’t release them then I start not sleeping and getting stressed. I am sure I am not the only one, right?
Here is my current active projects or known projects I am working on, not much has changed but all of them have moved forward.
