Victoria at tenthousandsewinghours.blogspot.com attempts to sew or do sewing related activities for a minimum of three hours a day as a form of sewing self improvement program. Visit her blog to get her take on what she actually does, but I thought there is much to learn form her approach.
Quite a few of us don't carve out a little sewing for me time, and I am certainly in that category, which is why Victoria's Fearless February challenge was a good push start for me. While I do not have Victoria's desire to devote a 3 hours a day to developing her sewing skills and knowledge base - or rather I know my own limitations, life demands, obligations and responsiblilities - I have decided that I must not allow them to take total priority over my desire to also improve my sewing skills. So I have decided that I can afford 30 minutes a day - over time that adds up, and on some days, quite a bit more.
Today was a 30 minute day, as I had to go to work. So, I found my small piece of Liberty lawn and quickly made a scarf out of it - all I did was complete a machine stitched narrow hem around 4 edges of a rectangle. I love Liberty prints, but unfortunately, worn as a blouse or dress - Liberty prints do not like me!
So, here is how I will wear this lovely Liberty print:
