As I’m sewing, I keep notes on the choices and changes I make. I like to use sketch books for that purpose because sometimes you can pack more information in a quick sketch than a thousand words. By the time I fill up the book with notes, sketches and fabric samples, the cover is usually in pretty bad shape. I don’t keep these forever, just a year or two. These aren’t real sketch books where your art takes shape, changes and matures. They are sewing notes that I need/want for a brief period of time. But I need to know the period they covered. Plus this is a great time to play around with machine embroidery.
I seem to have been very productive recently. This on contains only 3 months of sewing projects!
