i have 2 finals tomorrow. but instead of studying, i've been sewing like a madwoman for the last 3 days. i've made like 6 skirts, a reproduction 1950s dress, lined a hoodie, and started another dress.

thank god i'm switching schools after this semester to become a fashion major.

I agree absolutely, I always don't know what to do first, just have so much hobbies I'm unable to divide the time among them fairly and sewing takes most of my free time. Usually my day looks like "till 12 p.m. some crafts - finishing dress because I have to wear it the next day, making arrows for larp, beadwork and so and from 3 a.m. learning for school and writing homeworks..." Grin Would you believe I feel that coffee really stops working when you drink it like water? But yes, the inspiration always comes when you're stressed because you have a huge variety of incentives, or at least I do. Wink

Walking through the glass of mirror,
going to most distant star,
looking for the higher tenor,
journey leading far and far.

If no one was crafty life would be boring.

I just finished 4 essays last week and have finals next week and all I'm doing is sewing.  A wonderfully productive form of procrastination.  I already have my sewing plans laid out for winter break.  All I'm going to do is sew...and work....but sew.

So true! Thanks for starting this thread, I KNEW I wasn't the only one. When I was in school, I had to sew for my schoolwork (design major), yet I still wanted to just sew my stuff all the time. It was a big stress reliever to put down the pieces I was working on and just make myself a simple skirt or something. I also really enjoy making housewares as my sewing-work-reliever now. Usually I'm stuck behind the machine making custom stuff for people that's not as much fun as housewares. I love them! Mail organizers, tea towels, hand towels, pillowcases, curtains, potholders, you name it.

I find now that because I sew so much for my income, I've really taken to doing childish crafts to relax, like making a buttload of paper ornaments that are vaguely christmas-y. Basically I wanted to sit down with construction paper and a stapler and not have to think about it.

Anyhow, with all the Christmas gifts I need to be making, I'm still trying to make dresses for myself. I think I'm nuts!
