September is National Sewing Month!

Standard

The observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing to our Nation.”

Sewing and I have a love/hate relationship. At times I love it, and at times I hate it. Well hate is a strong word. Let’s just say I have to be in the “mood” to sew.

It can be fun and very gratifying to see a finished project that you made with your own hands. But as with anything else, sometimes it can be frustrating, especially when the projects don’t turn out the way they should 😉

I decided to take advantage of the month of sewing and try to finish a few projects I have sitting around the house. I have some outfits for Chase, and I have material to sew bedding for both Chase and Xander. So I have plenty to keep me busy. I’m sure I won’t get to them all, but if I can knock out one or two I will be pleased.

  


I guess I’m going to have to dust off the sewing table and remove the dust cover from my machine before I can get started. Wish me luck!

National Procrastination Week

Standard

Well, it actually started March 4, that would have been yesterday :0

It’s only apropos that I am a day late in blogging this information.

So, what exactly is National Procrastination Week about? Apparently we are to actually put off what we can do today until tomorrow.
Check out Answers.com, this week is all about “promoting the many benefits of putting off until tomorrow everything that needn’t be done today.”

Sounds like a plan to me!

I ran across this little short video several months ago and just had to find it again so I could post it today:


Ok, seriously I will choose to re-evaluate my habit of procrastination, find the reasons why I do so, and then will make a plan to change my ways!
In parting, I will leave you with a poster I have pinned on one of my boards on pinterest:
Until my next blog . . .  😉
