I have a question for you today: do you sew in quiet, or with music, an audio book or maybe with a movie or a tv show playing?
For me it all depends. Actually on a few things. Some days I need quiet while I sew so I can just concentrate on sewing. I find in those times, my mind wanders around in the background and works out some answer to something I have been pondering.
Other days I need the distraction while I sew. Maybe because I am chain sewing a bunch of like units and it helps keep me on track. My distraction of choice is a movie or TV show. I seems to find with audio books I lose track of what is being said.
Seems weird right a movie in the background keeps me on track with my sewing? But it does.
Other times, I feel the need for a movie BUT I should have kept things quiet. Like this afternoon. I was working on my AQS block and was watching The Crown on Netflix. I ended up with a center star unit that looked like this.
Hmmm. I believe that is wrong! There should be a Flying Geese unit on each side of the center square.
Jack to the rescue! And ta-da- I fixed the star and kept sewing my block.
Well, I best keep sewing and finish up that block! If you want to see it, check Instagram later! Maybe I will turn off the movie until the block is done and wait till I get to my chain piecing for the quilt I can’t show yet!
