Not much sewing this month. I've been waiting for the stars to line up to get the cloak cut but how I planned my September has not turned out to be what I've planned. Much like most of the year. September has been difficult but here we are at the end.
I found a new home for one of the sewing machines. It is being cared for by a young person who is showing some interest in learning how to sew. It felt good knowing that it went to someone who has some interest in learning this skill. I hope it brings joy into their life.
And I broke the fabric fast this month and picked up lining fabric to replace a drapery sheer 😞. I was so close with the fabric fast, if only I was able to stay away from fabric stores. So close. Hopefully, the rest of the year will have a spark of joy in the sewing room that can expand to the rest of the world.
Right now, I don't feel like spending my free time sewing. My heart is not into it. It's time to turn off the lights on the sewing table and at this time I don't know what tomorrow will bring.
On another note, these items were de-stash this month.
- 1 sewing machine
- 1 tomato pin cushion
- 1 copy of Sewtionary
- 1 package of tailor's chalk
- 1 package of knit sewing pins
- 4 packages of sewing needles
- 1 package + 0.20 metres of Knit 'N Stable tape
- 2.4 metres of fabric
- 1 previously used pattern
- 1 new pattern
In the meantime, I have a few books I would like to work through.
Stay safe and Happy Sewing!
