In addition to my other projects, I did manage to do just a bit of sewing in orange this weekend. Just a sneak peek for now.
Sewing is so much fun! I’ve been quilting for just under three years and it’s taken me that long to become good at sewing straight lines. Can you believe it? Of course, no one’s perfect and my lines aren’t always that straight but sometimes they are. And that bit of improvement is what makes sewing fun.
I spent all of Sunday sewing in my studio. I was probably in there for ten hours throughout the day and I was really productive. I think the key was to have the tv and radio off which I’d never tried before. I was totally and completely focused on my project and hours would go by without my knowing!
As much as I love watching movies while sewing, I think I need to work in quiet more often. I thought it would be boring but I was too engrossed in the project to be bored. I thought I’d get distracted after a while but it turns out the tv is the reason my thoughts are often scattered while crafting, why my concentration is so easily broken. Good to know. I’m still going to watch movies but on the days I’m feeling uncreative and distracted, I’ll try it with the tv off and see what happens.
What do you guys do to get into a creative groove? How do you keep from getting distracted?
