Two new sewing projects cut out over the long weekend. Who's feeling productive now! I'm starting to enjoy the pattern process a little more and it's feeling more therapeutic than drudgery. I think I've reluctantly let my parts of my life slow down over the past few years but now I'm starting to accept it and it's not a bad place to be. The pace of ironing, smoothing, tracing and cutting with patience and purpose is quite comforting. I know I can't do everything in one day so small accomplishments done well are reassuring triumphs.
