I'm not going to think about that madness any more. Moving on to the more fun stuff, this month's fostering creativity theme is taking breaks. Last week I talked about taking breaks from the sewing room and doing something else for a bit to bring back your sewing mojo. Taking breaks while you in the midst of a sewing frenzy is important too. Most of us don't get often get the chance to sew for hours on end, but when we do, mini breaks are a great way to keep your energy levels high. Stretching can help get your blood moving and keep you from getting stiff if you are planning to sit at the machine for several hours. There are all kinds of sites that have stretches for quilters. Here a few of my favorites.
American Quilters Society
Hopefully you'll find a few stretches from the above that help you get the blood moving and re-energize you during your longer sewing sessions.
If you've not been able to wrangle an hours long session, have you been able to find just 15 minutes a day to sew? I did pretty well on that front last week.
Tuesday was DT's last volleyball game of the regular season, so I didn't get home in time to sew. I ended up asleep in the recliner on Friday and just didn't make it upstairs to the sewing room. Still, 5 out of 7 days isn't bad.
