Sewing vs. Sleeping

I am POOPED.  I’m not sure what’s come over me.  Maybe I’m fighting a cold or maybe Project Run & Play fatigue has hit me (I love that I’ve been so involved and I’m NOT EVEN A CONTESTANT!  Hah!).  For the last few days/nights, I’ve been choosing to sleep instead of sew, which is pretty uncharacteristic of me.  I’ve got a huge list of projects that have been piling up for weeks and I was finally getting around to starting them.  But I have no energy!  When I’m at work, all I want to do is sleep!  And at home after Yuki goes down, I just want to sleep!  And in the morning, instead of getting up, I just want to sleep!  (I think you get the idea).

And then, there was THE ANNOUNCEMENT.

Project Run & Play is extending the Sew-along to include a signature look as well!!  And we have until February 16th to submit it.  Part of me just doesn’t know if I can do it (I have mad respect for the actual competitors who have been giving it their all for so long)!  I was definitely sad to see it end, but I had accepted it and was ready to move on to other projects.

But part of me cannot resist.

And that part will probably win.  So now I’m trying to figure out what my signature look will be.

And all those other projects will have to keep waiting.  I’ll try to share a project or an update or a tutorial over the next week, but between sleeping and sewing, I can’t promise you anything.

Except that I love you.  I can promise you that. 🙂

(I think I’m a little delirious :P)

  1. Ah yes, the age-old dilemma of a passionate seamstress! 🙂 There is definitely a fatigue that sets in with this type of sewing, and I was right there too until I got almost a total week off of sewing, and then tonight I was finally ready to go again! Can’t wait to see your signature look! And thanks for your wonderful comment, too. I’m just blown away by the response to my post today and it feels amazing.

    • I’m glad that you posted your honest reflections and I’m not surprised that you got such positive response to it. I think that people really appreciate, not only your sewing work, but everything you put into it. Alright, enough with the resting, let’s get sewing!! 😛
