Since the studio has been ready for working in, there's been a nice little groove of sewing, more slowly than before. Something I didn't predict, but that I'm quite happy about. It feels much more thoughtful and mindful. Because I can *see* everything, I already seem to spend a lot more time in the planning/thinking stage of making things. Like this:
Yeah. I'm wearing a hole in the floor in that spot, I'm sure. Just standing. Looking at it all. Planning. And thinking. No longer just grabbing whatever happens to be on the top of the pile becuase digging around for something better would be too overwhelming a task. I can actually spread things out, match them up, put them back when they're not right, and on and on. Ah...I do hope this lasts (my new mantra: I will pick up my mess after a project. I will pick up my mess after a project.)
Oh, and see that cute shiney head on the left? He's the other contributing factor to the productivity slow-down. With this newly mixed up space, there's comfortable room for two (he's on my laptop getting his daily You Tube fix). Nighttime sewing is much more fun with someone at the other end of the table making me laugh, and yes, slowing me down. So yeah, maybe there's a little less sewing, but there's a lot more fun. I'll take it.
