I get asked the “how do you find the time to sew?” question a lottttttttttttt.
I’m blessed to have a dedicated sewing space where I can leave my stuff out and come back to it throughout the day. The day I took these pictures I cut fat quarters while my youngest 2 kids slept…and in between making lunch and replacing band-aids I cut out some more. So by the end of the day I had all my fat quarters cut into pieces for a quilt.
And if you looked under my cutting table you’d see this:
My oldest likes to get out his art stuff and have his quiet time while I sew…I should really get him a table.
I rarely find a big chunk of time to sew while my kids are up. So my kids go to bed at 8, we tidy up the house, and then I usually sew or do computer work for an hour or more.
This little gal is on my hip ALL day long…so unless I can do it 1 handed…it doesn’t get done while she’s awake. Which is OK…cause I’m in love with her.
By finding small bits of time here and there to cut, make a block, or sew a row together…you’ll be surprised how much you can get done. You might even find you’re more productive when you know you only have 15 minutes to sew like mad!
I wonder all the time how some of my favorite bloggers find the time to sew, decorate, have 6 kids, feed 6 kids, take pictures of 6 kids and then blog about it.
What’s most important is that you find what works for you, and don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Which is hard…I know. :)
I saw that on facebook and it made me laugh….and it made me glad that I live in this day and age. I certainly wouldn’t get any sewing done if I had to get my “hair in order” before I sewed!
