Personal ReflectionWhilst enjoying my garment-making hiatus, I have done a little reflective thinking about why I didn't want to make garments. This has been for a number of reasons:
1. I don't want to make clothes for my current figure. I am a bit ashamed that I let myself put on so much excess weight over the winter. I don't want to be photographed either.
2. I tidied out my wardrobe and realised I have FAR TOO MUCH clothing already. The very last thing I need in my life is more clothing! The added trouble is that I don't ever throw clothes away. If it is too summery to wear, it gets put into the spare room closet. If it is too small or too big, it gets put into a size-labelled container and hidden in the loft/attic until I return to that size in the future.
3. My sewing room -which is also the spare room- is full of my Mister's things. We are still awaiting a joiner to create storage space in his workroom and so in the meantime my room is a storage room, which makes anything larger than a bit of patchwork piecing difficult to work with in there.
4. I am LOVING doing patchwork at the moment. I bought some beautifully coloured prints and am really enjoying making them into something wonderful for my sister. I also bought some sweet little girly fabric that I am enjoying cutting up to it's best advantage to create a patchwork quilt with too - I have no intended recipient for this quilt, but it is bringing me much joy creating it. (I'll share some pictures of these in my next post)
