The Dreamstress is hosting The Historical Sew Fortnightly event this year. It sounds like a fabulously fun, and motivating group sew. I've fallen hard off of the sewing truck these past couple of months. I do have an excuse...a legitimate one...we are trying to sell our house. But, I've felt a giant hole in my life because of it...a huge lack of creativity is taking it's toll on me and making me feel a bit depressed. One can only do so much living vicariously through other seamstresses before one goes mad with an itch that can't be scratched. I simply must sew something historical.
Obviously, because of my present circumstances, I won't be able to make a huge mess. So, large projects are out of the question. But, The Dreamstress has made the categories for this group sew-along broad enough that I'm sure I can find something small to do, that can be packed away quickly if someone wants to view our house at the last minute. I'm also working on a non-existent budget, so I will be only tackling projects that can be done with my current stash, or that can be bought with a $25 dollar gift card I have to Joanne's Fabric store. Not much...but something is better than nothing. I love that this event allows for smaller projects as well as large one, and it's always motivating working along side others. I hope you will join in on the fun!
