Life at our house goes on at a breakneck pace, causing me to neglect posting as regularly as I would like.Â But my sewing room is a beehive of unreported activity, not all of it very interesting.
Wouldn’t you love to sew only creative, fun items?Â Does anyone get to do that? Â Check out an earlier ho-hum post for an interesting view of what constitutes fun sewing elsewhere, likeÂ “baju kurung, kebaya, punjabi suit.” Just how much fun would it be to sew a punjabi suit? More fun than I had with these projects.
But duty calls and I have a running list ofÂ ho-hum sewing which is in addition to routine mending.Â These ho-hums become occasions for which my sewing machines can actually save some money.Â While there is no creative satisfaction, there is the satisfaction of contributing to the family, being a helpmate to my dear husband, andÂ satisfaction in proving that my Brother Dream Machine is more than just an expensive toy.
