Some things I learned this March:
1: It's Still Winter Here. (ISWH)
2: When I know I should be prepared for something, I tend to have a hard time deciding how to prepare--and then get nothing done. All through February, I kept thinking I should be sewing for March, which made me procrastinate sewing for March.
3: It's probably a good thing I procrastinated, because I imagined I would be sewing Spring clothes for March. (See item 1)
4: Being cold can be a good motivator to make clothes. Too bad, I ended up ripping out most of my knitting.
5: Long underwear needs a lot of stretch.
6: Should I have an urge to sew something impractical, I should wait and see if someone else does first, and then learn from their approach. Then, I should sew while inspired, instead of trying to be practical.
7: Still, a person doesn't really need that many drapey cowls.
8: Sergers are squat, scary beasts, but I can tame them.
9: New habits can be established in 1 month, but it helps if you feel an obligation to somebody besides yourself. I have read many times that the best way to establish new habits is to clearly state your goal in a public way, find some like-minded people to join you, and document your success. It seems too simple, but it does work.
10: I can't stop wearing brown. Yet, have been on the lookout for some bright colors for Spring--the real Spring--which really is upon us.
Finally, I can't stand the bizarre faces I make to self-timers. (Thanks Rachael for the photo.) Do others of you have this disorder too? (Self-Timer Facial Self- Distortion Syndrome STFSDS.) How do you get your best pictures? And how do you feel about the headless shot?
