Never Enough Time to Sew?



I love this time-saving tip from Pat Sloan that I heard on her podcast.

Sew at least 10 minutes a day is her mantra. Her tip is: Always have something out. Have it ready to pick up, and a place for it, so that you don’t have to go and hunt, and clear space, and dig through stuff just to sew ... so you have a way to get to it quickly ... something small, portable. Whether you like to piece or hand applique, or embroider, or finish a binding or a sleeve, a label, etc....

It’s good advice! So I always have a bit of hand piecing, applique, or quilting near the phone or the TV, ready to pick up to sew a few stitches. You will be surprised how much you can accomplish.

My only problem is I can’t stop after 10 minutes!

Keep Stitching!

  2. This is such a great idea! I just cannot find the time to get to my sewing room anymore and I'm going to try this. Makes ALOT of sense. Thank you!!!!

  3. I either cannot stop and neglect other things that need doing or I fall asleep within minutes of starting to hand sew. Still, I keep trying.

  4. I do this and you're right - sometimes it's hard to stop. My downfall is the time it takes to prep. I need a space where I could leave it with all the accoutrements needed.

  5. Great advice and I have a hard time stopping also. I am determined to keep stitching string blocks until I empty two bins of strings. The thought of those boxes being empty keeps me going!

  6. I do this as well I keep it beside me in the living room my husband tends to watch lots of sports and I don't want to go to a different room to sew. So I keep my hand applique close by and three hours actually go by very quickly.

  8. الحشرات تكثر الحشرات في الدول العربيّة بسبب ارتفاع درجات الحرارة وارتفاع نسبة الرطوبة في العديد من المناطق التي تطلّ على المسطّحات المائية، وتُسبّب تلك الحشرات والآفات الكثير من الضرر في حال تواجدها في المنازل أو منشآت الأعمال، خاصّةً التي تختصّ بالمنتجات الغذائية، ومن أهمّ المشاكل التي تسبّبها الحشرات في المنازل الأمراض التي تصيب قاطني المنزل خاصّةً الأطفال، والعفونة التي تصيب الأثاث والملابس المحفوظة في الخزائن.
