    My biggest sewing challenge is time. I have numerous medical issues with my bones and being able to sit for very long at the machine, or hand stitching with the joint issues and arthritis in my hands. I take alot of breaks and do what I can to alleviate the pain so I can sew, but it’s a challenge either way. It might slow me down but it doesn’t stop me! :o)

    My biggest sewing, knitting, or crocheting challenge is so little time, and fingers that work so slowly. So many inspirational patterns, so many wonderful fabrics, everywhere I see ideas. Many times I see something in a store or something someone is wearing, that triggers my imagination. And I can picture delightful upcycled doll clothing.

    My biggest challenge for sewing would be working with knit fabric. My biggest challenge for crocheting and knitting would be keeping the tension I’m using constant. My biggest overall challenge for all three would be having to deal with carpal tunnel syndrome, especially when wanting to work on projects with the limited time I have.

    My biggest sewing, knitting, or crochet challenge is trying to decide what material I want to use for the project I want to sew. I have so many thoughts in my head of what I think it should look like but take a very long time deciding which material to use. Most times I have to call my daughters and ask them to help me choose. They don’t like to sew but they are so good at knowing what material to use on my project and they have never failed me yet. Those projects always turn out looking gorgeous.
