"Wow! You've been busy!" That's the phrase I've been hearing a lot during the last few weeks as I've been releasing my BRAND NEW Doll Patterns. So far I've released 21 of my 30 new Linda Walsh Originals doll pattern designs. Next week I'm going to release the remaining 9 and then I'm going to take a break.
What kind of break will I be taking? Why, a sewing break, of course. You see - I just love to sew. I would actually say that I have a "need to sew." But, what does that mean? Anyone who loves to sew knows what I mean when I say "I just have an urge to sew." An overwhelming desire to create. And when you do, you get into a mode - "a sewing mode" which may last for days on end. Sometimes, even months on end. You must be wondering, "Is that relaxing and taking a break?" For me it is. It's the best form of relaxation.
So, I'm going to take a sewing break. Well, you know what that means. I'll sew 20 or 30 more of the 100 or so doll designs that are on the back burner. Then, I'll put the dolls all together, take their pictures, create their patterns, add them to my website, and then start promoting them which puts me right back at square number one. Design, sew, photograph, write, add to website, and promote. A viscous circle. Well, not so viscous when you love what you are doing. And, I do love it.
So, yes, I've been busy. It is time to take a break. A "sewing break."
