I hate to admit it, but it seems like I have overdone it with sew-alongs, contests etc. Additionally, I started a new job this month and underestimated the amount of time it takes to learn the new tasks, prepare an important meeting and so on. That’s why my blazer is still unfinished and the matching skirt is cut but I have not even started on that one. In the end the sewing became more of a chore and the fun got lost a little. Sew-alongs and their likes can certainly many to achieve more in less time, however one should not overdo it. And my job still pays my fabric consumption and anything else and so it always has to come first. Therefore, I will take it easier during the next time and tackle easy sewing projects that promise instant gratification. What are your experiences with sew-alongs and Co.? Do they help you or do you loose the fun through them?
