30 minutes for 30 days – days 3, 4 & 5

June 6, 2011

I’ve been sewing 30 minutes a day for the last 5 days! Yey! And it’s been fun!

It’s actually worked out really well;  it has taken a bit of getting used to, as I am working in such bite-size chunks and I generally just don’t like to dip in and out of projects like this – I like to sit down and concentrate for a decent amount of time. But I am adapting much better and quicker than I thought I would, which has been great.

Days 3 and 4 (Friday and Saturday) I actually did some hand sewing. We’ve been doing some pretty serious springcleaning, and on Friday I found a box with a few clothes in it that I’d put aside until I got a chance to mend them. Naturally I’d completely forgetten about it! So when I rediscovered it on Friday, I thought I would use the opportunity of this challenge to fix some things. I mended the hems on two pairs of trousers for my husband, and fixed a hole in one of his T-shirts. Cue nice fuzzy feeling for being such a good wife :)

Yesterday I couldn’t put off working on Sorbetto any longer so I started on that. I’ve now staystitched the neckline and sewn both darts. Today I’m going to press the darts, hopefully sew the pleat down the middle, and you never know, I might even manage a side seam (or two)!

How about you – did you do any sewing this weekend?
