I've been sewing for over two years, but I'm still fumbling my way through my projects. You'd think with all the whining that I do on blog, I'd give up on it and I'm still whining about it on my blog. So I've been reading The Colette Sewing Handbook to brush up on my sewing skills.
I've flicked through it in the past, admiring the gorgeous photos and making mental notes on which projects to make in the future. But today I started reading the techniques and instructions, and they're so clear and well-written. I've only read the a few articles, but I already feel inspired to be more thoughtful about my sewing, instead of just plunging ahead and trying to finish a project as quickly as I can.
I should start spending my lunch breaks reading sewing books, instead of always shopping for shoes.
So I read a bit of the book at lunch time, and it's been a very trying day at work since then. I'm supposed to be reading/reviewing a document but all I can think of is that pretty sewing book in my bag.
I've also checked out some reviews of the book and now I'm looking forward to making all the patterns in the book!
