I read this over at Ravelly. It's about your sewing rituals. It was one of her older posts about sewing rituals. I thought I'd write about mine.
1.) I always use my angle arm magnifying lamp over my sewing area. Mostly for the extra light and the lense for seam ripping.
2.) I sew barefoot or in socks.
3.) I behave as if I'm working in a sweat shop. Head down, focused and as fast as possible.
4.) I sometimes listen to music but mostly it's just the hum of my machine.
5.) I can't seam to learn that the ironing board is not a good cutting table.
6.) I make a disaster of my craft room and refuse to straighten it up until the project is complete.
7.) I keep my little fiskar fine point scissors at the machine for trimming threads.
8.) I keep all my scissors at my sewing table within easy reach.
9.) I keep my bobbin holder next to my machine in case I need to speed load.
10.) My seam ripper holder is "stuck" to my sewing table with double sided tape so it can't be moved, lost, or otherwise AWOL.
When I take a stretch break I'm usually all bound up in the sewing hunch.
But it's soo much fun.
