With a baby on the way (only 21 weeks to go! time is flying!) I am setting a goal to sew a few nice pieces of clothing for both Rita and the baby. Let's say three things for both kiddos.
It will be a fun challenge to put myself on a schedule (that works in harmony with Rita's schedule) allowing me to have 15 minutes of personal prayer time (one of my goals for the year) and hopefully 30 minutes of sewing time. Sewing five times per week for 30 minutes will give me 2 1/2 hours of time!! That is plenty enough time to sew a garment. Let's say that each project will take two weeks = 12 weeks of sewing time needed. This should be a great set-up because I will have those last few weeks to wash diapers, clothes and do other prep work before our wee one arrives! The deadline for completing my sewing projects is June 9th.
Making time for a hobby always helps me to be a more balanced individual. More selfless, patient, giving, grateful, joyful and content. I am really looking forward to the fruits of my labor - both spiritual and temporal!
