Don’t know about you, but I usually have a million projects going at once. OK, maybe not a million – just feels like it sometimes!
Now that doesn’t count things like laundry, housework, cooking, paying bills & grocery shopping. Although these projects do eat up a lot of my time. And we won’t mention the time spent writing blog posts!
Part of my sewing time involves testing patterns, and making samples. There are times that this keeps me very busy. When not testing patterns or making samples – or writing Blog Posts, I usually have a number of projects in various stages of completion.
I find that I have to stop every so often and give my sewing space some personal time. Starting with my ironing board and cutting tables, I sort and replace things that get piled high while I’m working.
So today we “Get Set” to work on Pillowcases.
- Clean off Ironing Board & Cutting Tables.
- Pack up remnants from recent projects – Scraps, useable yardage, etc.
- Change the Blades in my Rotary Cutters.
- Change the sewing machine needle, general cleaning of all that fuzz that accumulates and oiling the bobbin area.
Once I get the piles sorted & put away and the machine cleaned & oiled, I can “Get Set” on my next project.
- Iron Pillowcase Fabric
- Cut Pillowcase body, band and trim (if I decide to use it)
I will set the cut fabric aside in stacks all ready for a day of sewing on Thursday.
I’m “Set” to get started, are you?
