It is the best when time flies while sewing! Emerging from a creative activity and thinking where did that time go? is a "state of flow".  

It feels soooo good... 

I just read that "people who have experienced this state of mind report higher levels of productivity, creativity, and happiness for up to three days after experiencing flow state" (in an article by Harvard professor Teresa Amabile).

See you again soon!

This is a great first item of clothing to make after the beginners course. Learning how to apply facing and invisible zip is such a great skill for future and the instructions and teachers made it so easy to follow. Having the take home pattern is a bonus. Can’t wait to make this item again in my own time.
