Now that my quilting machine and embroidery machine are both broken, I need something new to do. I have a friend who sews clothing for kids at Pine Ridge Reservation. I asked her what patterns she uses and she sent me links for some skirts and hats and mittens.
Now I have something to work on until my machines get fixed. Surely better than cleaning the house. I've done loads and loads of laundry and dishes and shampooed the carpets and while it is fun to make things neat, there isn't anything to show for the work I've done. Entropy always wins and after a day, the laundry is back and the dishes reappear and the carpet gets dirty again. At least when you sew, you have something to show for your time spent.
