I've been trying to lose weight and therefore, I've been sewing a lot.
How does that work, you ask? Well, I like to sew a lot. When I'm going about business as usual, I am often tempted to stop for a little snack. But when I'm sewing I get so caught up in it, I forget. I lose all desire to eat. (I also lose all desire to sleep, bathe, and leave the house, but that's a whole 'nother discussion.)
Along with some other tactics, it seems to be working. I'm down at least 6 lbs in the last month.
And I've gotten some good sewing done. I just finished this dress and wore it to church Sunday:
Now the trick is to finish my sewing projects fast enough that they're not too big by the time I finish them. And if that's my biggest problem, I'll take it!
