Butterfly Seamstress

Do you ever get in a mood where you want to sew so badly but there are so many things you want to sew you just don't know where to start? I'm having one of those days. There's a pile of things waiting to be sewn on the machine but the trouble is...I really want to just sit and hand sew something. There's something therapeutic about running a needle and thread through some fabric and turning it into something beautiful that can be worn. But machine sewing is faster and therefore more practical for some projects. *sigh*
And then...where to start? There's so many projects I have lined up I get dizzy with trying to decide because I can't settle on one...I feel like a butterfly.
Well, I suppose I should get of the lap top now and go try to pick something.
I hope you all are having a splendid day and getting more accomplished than I am. ;)

  1. Yes Yes Yes! That's my mood right now! I'm home for the weekend and I cut out two projects, but I'm having a hard time getting motivated to sew them.

    Are these pictures from Bright Sun? Have you seen that yet? I really want to, and I was just about to do a post on my blog about it.

  2. I know exactly what you mean! In fact, I recently decided to take a break from the machine for a project and hand sew a lovely silk blouse. My favorite aspect of garment construction is the finishing--the part you get to do by hand. It truly is therapeutic!

  3. my problem is finding time to sew period. I have so many things I want to make and no time in which to get it all done. Hope you're able to pick something soon :)



Although I continually talk about movie costumes on this blog, I am not a movie reviewer. Not all the films I discuss are recommended and I do not choose to review weather they are appropriate or not for the simple fact that every person's standards are different. Something that is fine for me may be offensive to some one else and visa versa. If you would like to look into the appropriateness of a title, I recommend I have not seen all the movies I discuss, and am simply interested in the art of clothes in film. I will leave you to decide for yourself if you will watch the movie or not.
