Now the question of the day is, “What do you find yourself sewing most often?” Which isn’t always the same as “What is your favorite thing to sew?”
I ask this question today because this week is all about ragged projects here on the blog…and I love them…and there was a time when I was doing craft fairs when I was sewing about 15 ragged tote bags a day. Now, at that time I would have without a doubt said that I find myself sewing ragged tote bags most often.
But after I was done loving on ragged totes, I started in on aprons. Aprons GALORE!!!!
Next it was appliqued dish towels…and so on and so forth.
Except when I am expecting…then it’s nothing but baby blankets, bibs, burp cloths etc….no matter what else is going on!!!
I think that every season of life lends itself to one particular kind of sewing whether it be mending, quilting, or sewing garments. And I have to admit that I am enjoying my way through all these seasons of sewing. Stitching up both projects that I sew most and those that are my most favorite to sew.
For me, right now, my favorite thing to sew are quilts. However, the thing I sew most often are skirts for my girls. Not very may days go by before I am making a new skirt for one of my girls. And while I do love that (a lot)…and it is what I find myself currently sewing most often, right now I am dreaming of diving into Christmas quilt making. However, I need to savor the skirt making for as long as I can because I know that one day far too soon they will suddenly become too cool for my handiwork.
So how about you? What are you sewing currently sewing most often? And is it the same as your favorite thing to sew?
