Sometimes a change of scenery makes all the difference.
This time of year, my basement studio is cold, especially in contrast to the beautiful Spring days we are starting to have. I find myself antsy and wanting a change of scenery.
Have ya ever temporarily moved your sewing "spot"?
It has made all the difference for me as I collapsed the vintage sewing machine I display upstairs and put to use the sewing cabinet my dad refurbished for me almost two summers ago. I can now sit in this sunny spot in front of our large window, listen to the birds flutter from treehouse to treehouse and watch the neighborhood spring activities as I sew....and it's warm enough I can be barefoot!
It's the perfect spot to create the scrappy "made fabric" border I'm creating for my rainbow girls because I don't need a lot of supplies. I can sit down and sew for a therapetic thirty minutes and once my pile gets high (Notice it at the right of my machine) I stop for the day, go downstairs to iron them, ready for the next day. I so very grateful to have a designated sewing studio, but sometimes a change a scenery is rejuvinating. I can now just sit and sew. I find myself anticipating coming home from work today for a little free flow sewing without feeling like I need to go downstairs to "get everything started". I'm curious to see if this will improve my "sewing time" during the week. For now, it's refreshing to have a new sunny spot to look forward to "winding down in" at the end of the day.
It's my new happy place.
Hoping your week is off to a great start as well.
