… be sure to have all of your supplies!
I was in a crunch when I needed to finish the last Rock’n Round Robin row onto a quilt which I showed last week. Well, I was in such a time crunch when I was working on this (about 3 weeks ago) and the night before I was struggling to stay awake at the sewing machine (but of course once I went to bed, it took me forever to fall asleep which led me to thinking why am I not sewing if I am not sleeping but yet I can’t get to sleep if I am not laying down…) and finally decided that this was just going with me to work the next day!
Today I thought I would share with you a quick tip for utilizing just about anything around you or the place you are in, in order to get your sewing done! I am sure we have all been met with deadlines but have other commitments (like the job that keeps the utilities on :::insert sad face here:::) and among life in itself, can’t find the time to get it done; I got her done! hehe
One of two very large couches became my design wall…
A small white chair with a white rag on it next to the last electrical (in my reach) plug was available; which was also where all phone lines and electrical is based became my iron board…
|The small table to the right of it became the table where I laid the blocks out for ironing.|
So to say that when in a crunch and needing to sew, I have quite learned that I don’t need all the fancy set ups and all the appropriate devices such as tables and ironing boards to sew… if I want to sew I really can. Yet they say that with anything, don’t they? If you really want to do something, you will. So I did.
I am grateful that I work for a company that supports ME and not just the job I do FOR them. I hope you enjoyed today’s quick TIP! Never say never when it comes to sewing! You CAN get it done.
