We live in a fast-paced, NOW, right NOW culture. Although, at times NOW is good…when it comes to sewing, especially garments, SLOW and STEADY wins the race!
I know that this comes with extra steps (thread tracing your muslin, hand-sewing your hems and zippers, etc.); and just the excitement of getting to the end result! (Trust me, my ADHD self knows that feeling.) But, I also know that those extra steps, mellow me out! Therapeutic.
So, I take care to take my time with sewing because it looks very well made, and there’s a certain satisfaction that comes with knowing you took care to take your time in constructing your piece!
I pray you all, Merry Christmas and Happy New year! Make sure to take care of each other!
