Consequently this will be a very brief 15 minute post this morning.
I had a really good week, finding at least 15 minutes to stitch (or in some cases play with a fabric layout) for seven out of the last seven days.
No breaks for me this week, I've felt really energized about being in the sewing room. There's not a lot of changes up on the design wall, but I can see the evidence of progress with all the little pieces piling up by the sewing machine. We've been taking about taking breaks this month as part of the discussion on fostering creativity. Sometime we need short breaks to energize ourselves when we are lucky enough to get a few hours to spend stitching. Even during shorter stitching sessions stretching is a good idea to keep one from getting stiff and keep the blood moving. If we've been stitching a complicated project or have just finished a project that had a deadline, sometimes a longer break is needed. We go do other things for a day, two, a week or sometimes even a month, until our stitching mojo comes back.
So take a break, write a post about how you are doing finding 15 minutes to stitch. Or are you on a more extended mojo building break?
