This year is new and different for me. I decided, preemptively, to take my machines in to be serviced at a time when I didn’t have hard deadlines staring me in the face.
I hope this new found scheduling idea will result in avoiding the crisis of being without a machine. Maybe I can go an entire holiday season avoiding the panic of machine not working.
And best of all, I can be without my sewing machines at a time when I can do the non-sewing preparations.
No sewing machine in the next room does give me a bit of the shakes. I keep walking by the room anxious that there is something I should be sewing.
However, I know that I have preparations in hand, my machine will be back shortly and the rest of my projects will flow more easily.
