. . . and I am a sewist.
What? Okay, let me explain. I’ve just joined a “twelve step program” sewing group. This group has been started by Chickpea Sewing Studio as habit forming way to keep up on sewing projects: For 12 months, 12 days a month, I will sew for 1 hour. I like the idea of this plan because its not too ambitious, but will give me a bit of structure/incentive to continue to work on my sewing skills. You can work on any project you like: hand sewing, quilts, clothing, etc. I will be holding myself to this outside of any sewing classes I might take. I am hoping that this will help me take my sewing to another level.
Anyone that cares to join me is welcome. There is a related flickr group here to show off projects, check it out to get some ideas. I’ll be posting projects there, but will make some blog posts as well. Wish me luck!
