As you might have noticed, I'm pretty active on my blog. The reason is that the intensive treatment I should get in january is delayed. At the moment I'm still waiting until I can start. (I didn't know that waiting can be so hard!) To pass the time, I was thinking about some goals, other then related to my (mental) health, which helps me to get through the day. And I thought about sewing and blogging in general. And more specific about the Lutterloh project I started last year.
Firstly, it's time to evaluate this project. In that year I was able to finish only 3 patterns from that book. The drafting process is quite time consuming. On the other hand I really like drafting patterns, but I don't think I will be able to finish every pattern from that book. Another thing is, I have more Lutterloh books and by focusing on only one book I will never have time to use the patterns of the other books. So, some things have to change.
At the moment it's really hard to focus on just one sewing projects. In the mornings I'm feeling best, the afternoon is worse. I'm getting tired and easily distracted, so I shouldn't do any difficult things during the midday. Things I like to do at that time is hand sewing or (surprisingly) pattern drafting. Especially pattern drafting is really helpful for me to distract my mind from other things.
This means I would be more productive if I work on 2 or 3 projects at the same time. For example: I use the mornings for sewing and the first part of the afternoon for pattern drafting and the second part for hand sewing or knitting.
The second thing is that I want to include the other books as well. There still will be a Lutterloh project, but I pick patterns from different years/books ranging from the late 30s to the early 50s.
I already started drafting Lutterloh skirt 53 (1941), and today I cut out the fabric for a muslin. I'm also thinking about spring and summer sewing projects. Hence the pink and yellow strips in the books.
So stay tuned for more Lutterloh!
