Making the most of my time...



My sewing time usually occurs during Ezra's afternoon naps. Occasionally I'll get a couple of hours in the evening after the boys have gone to bed and if Mike is busy doing other things.
During my afternoon power sewing sessions the house is remarkably quiet and cozy. I used to just enjoy the hum of the sewing machine and get lost in thought. Over the past few months I have begun incorperating something new to my sewing time.
I pull the laptop over to my workspace (we are a sans I pod house:), and I listen to various Bible teachings online.
Incorperating this little practice has really been such a renewing time and a time to discipline my mind and keep it from wandering to things that it can wander to...worry, to-do lists, etc...
If you are interested, here are a couple of websites I get some great stuff from each day:

Back to sewing while Ezra continues napping. I am trying to finish five aprons for the shop by Monday. Wish me luck!

  3. I thought I was the only one with a laptop + sewing machine set up ;) Sewing time is the best, and it's fun to incorporate different 'background' entertainments.

    Good luck with your aprons!

  6. That sounds like a very serene way to sew. My boys join me in my daily handwork, and this might be a very nice way for us to come together and enjoy a bit of peace
