My stitching resolution for 2021 is to make time to sew.
That should be simply right! Not in my world. During 2020 as I worked my way through a set program of projects to become a Quiltworx certified shop I really struggled at times to find time at the machine. Now I was hearing stories of how much time other people were having sewing up a storm and here I was really struggling.
I got there in the end but it was not the way I had planned to do it. I had a plan for 2020 that fell apart about April. Yes I can blame Covid-19 for some of my failings. Making everything harder and creating too many hoops for me to jump through behind the scenes to keep the business open and running within the new regulations. Boy, did I have issues. There was plenty to deal with and I tried my hardest to battle on and not to let it show. The rest of the issues were my own doing, I could have done something about them and didn't. Plus trying to keep everyone else happy was too much work and only pushed me to breaking point.
Now how am I going to make time for me to sew.
For 2021 all workshops and classes will have the end of the the sessions announced, unless you are paying for an extended session. This should give me extra time to take care of business during shop hours rather than in the evening when I could be sewing.
Next half of our Saturday sessions are becoming 10 am-1pm sessions, which hopefully will give me 1-2 hours on some Saturday afternoon to sew.
I have 3 big projects I need to find time to work on during 2021. One is the Glacier Star project the ladies are doing this year. I need to be ahead of them so I am sure I know what I am doing during the workshops.
I wish I could tell you about the other two, but at the time of posting this blog post I can't share the details. When I am able to, I will shout the details from the rooftop.
When there is a fifth Saturday or Sunday in the month they are mine to sew, no workshops will be scheduled, unless it is unavoidable.
Until Next Time
