Sewing for Others

For anyone who follows my blog regularly, you may have noticed that I'm not posting very often. I'll be honest - I'm struggling to find a balance in my life.  I absolutely love working again, even if it's only part time. But because my son is still so young I'm working nights and weekends. Some days I feel like a zombie during the day and have been known to take a nap between the 3 trips I make back and forth to school. It doesn't help that I got sick right after the new year and still don't feel 100%.

Now don't take this to mean that I'm complaining - I'm not. I've not been out in the working world for 5 years now and it's just a life adjustment that's going to take some time and for now it's my sewing that's taking the hit. I just don't always have the mental capacity to be creative. So for now, the only sewing I'm getting done is for my bee mates in Compass Quilters and Stash Bee.

Here is my most recent finish, my February stash bee block for Kathy. You can read the Stash Bee blog post here.


  1. Came over from your Stash Bee post because I wanted you to get the comment. Striking block - I love the contrast! Adding you to my list of blogs to read, too. Hope you feel better soon and find some time to sew for yourself.

  2. Balance is the hardest thing to find! I feel the same way that something always has to give, and if I direct more attention that way, then something else suffers. Hopefully are now feeling better and can start having some more energy. Your sew mojo will come back :)

  3. I am so glad to hear that you are enjoying working, but try not to exhaust yourself! I hope some balance appears after you have truly shaken the New Year lurgy.

  4. Thanks for the update, Diana. I wish you the best and I hope that you can find the balance you need in your life; it seems like such an elusive thing sometimes. I hope you start to feel healthy and whole and know that we'll be hanging out and ready whenever you have the time! Also, you made a fun and bright block for the Stash Bee this month. :)

  5. Try not to exhaust yourself Diana, as it is so difficult to regain lost energy. Glad you are enjoying working again. But balance is important!

  6. Ah balance - the elusive balance! So glad you have enjoyed going back to work - that is important as is your family and if you can squeeze some sewing in too its a bonus :-)


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from my readers. I typically respond directly to your email unless it's an answer that I think everyone would be interested in hearing. If you are a no-reply blogger (and I know that blogger doesn't play nice with other blogging platforms!), I will reply directly on my website. Thanks for stopping by!
