Is Slow Sewing Better?
In the past when starting a sewing project I knew when it would be finished: as soon as possible.
Now, my time is limited which turns out to be a good thing because so are my finances. I pick a project and pull out my fabrics checking for what might work before I purchase more.
A Christmas banner is something I've been wanting to make for a long time. I even had a magazine with the project I wanted to do.
I searched through my stash and found I needed to purchase only one fabric.
That was a month ago. See how slow sewing is going?
I've cut everything out and began the project.

Because I am not rushing I find that I need to use the seam ripper less.
Another reason to embraces slow sewing. It seems Wendell wants to help me sew at the machine.
I'm looking forward to slow sewing this project. Once it's done (before this Christmas I hope) I'll post a photo.
What about you? Have you slowed down to enjoy your hobbies? Or are you in a race?
