Getting Organized: Lesson 5

Hmph, the next lesson is entitle “Press As You Sew”. How did she know I hate to do that!?

Well, she explains how she knows.

Those of us who are “blessed” with being sidetracked often have the attitude of “well, if it doesn’t show, it doesn’t matter.” I’ve discovered that isn’t true in sewing (although I still don’t like to do it) and I have a feeling I’m about to learn it in becoming organized.

Basically this lesson was “It’s going to be tough. Some of it isn’t going to be fun, but if you skip something it will negatively effect the rest of what you’re doing.” So bring on the ironing!

  1. Bring on the ironing indeed! I probably need to work on that a bit more. with quilting I press everything to death just because presicion is a must. But with a lot of other things I find myself finger-pressing quite a bit.
    I find that my worst problem in sewing is clipping all the little threads as I go. I know there are highly organized sewers out there who do that. I get to the end of a project and there are threads sticking everywhere. Not fun to go back and clip.
