Yesterday was the last straw! I was sewing my Cynthia Rowley dress (almost done by the way) but I wasted so much time doing that and trying to watch a movie. Then I got turned around on a step (a simple one) and got sooooo frustrated and just stopped for the night. I mean I wasted a good bit of time on something so simple. I know if I had just limited my distraction I would've finished my dress last night and saved myself the added frustration.
As with anything in life, sometimes you have to sacrifice a little for the sake of the greater good. And in my case that would be faster sewn garments (wink)!
With this said I take the following pledge:
In an effort to maximize my sewing productivity,
I, Victoria, pledge not to watch TV while
actively sewing on a project.
Instead, I will listen to classical music or audio books
and reserve my TV use for helpful sewing DVD's
or to watch when I'm doing menial sewing tasks, such as hand sewing.
Whew, I feel so much better! Nothing like a good purge! I'm curious, what things have you had to give up (or rules you've had to implement) to increase your sewing productivity?
