Seven Days of Sewing

It's been 9 days since I've sewn anything. Nine. I haven't even touched my hexagons. It's taking its toll. I'm starting to get a little jittery. But the next week, it will be different.

Every day for the next seven days, I'm challenging myself to sew something. I'm not pressuring myself to finish a project, or even complete a whole step of a project. I'm not pressuring myself to work for a certain amount of time - 5 minutes, 30 minutes, 2 hours, whatever I can squeeze in, as long as I do something. I just need to shuffle some sewing time back into my life and regain some sanity.

I won't blog every day, but I will try to post a pic each day on instagram and come back at the end of the week with an update - I'm @crookedseams on instagram, and I'll be using the hashtag, #7daysofsewing, to pull it all together. Feel free to follow/play along if you'd like!

I'm traveling home from a work conference in Buffalo (skyline shot below) most of the day today, but the fun starts tonight!
