Take as long as you need to finish that seam or embellishment and if it's wonky, so what?
Does it always have to be perfect?
Does it always have to have a purpose?
Does it always have to be meaningful?
You are coming to class with the desire to learn and in so doing, wil make mistakes and your seams will be wonky.
Like driving or cooking when you are concentrating on it you notice how far away to not hit the curb or just how much of a spice for that perfect taste
It all becomes second nature after you do it for months and years but untill then, you concentrate on just how long that stitch should be before you can just "feel" it.
So go ahead, give yourself permission to make a mess, take a few days to get that stitch.
We as women and mothers don't do that for ourselves as much as we should.
We need to realize if only at our sewing table, it's ok to take our time, to make mistakes and do it over again.
Our lives are so busy taking care of everything and everyone we forget to take care of ourselves. We forget that we need "quiet time".
SLow stitching does that for me and I like to share it.
