Have just returned from sewing retreat at Camp St. Christopher on John’s Island, SC – It was great to get away for my mental health – Now it’s great to be home. Balance is key. As I was walking along the beach look who else was enjoying the beach sand! can you tell?
Guess who? well if you don’t know – it’s a friendly deer. While away I finished several UFO’s (Unidentified Fiber Objects). To stay focused I kept all unfinished projects in the car and had only one in the workroom at a time. When I finished that project I took it out to the car and brought in one more. This not only kept me moving around and exercising but also kept my focus on one sewing project at a time. With this method I was able to finish 5 out of 7 projects. Now I only have about 400 more UFO’s in the sewing room!
Why a Sewing Retreat – is key to our mental health
- You get to finish UFO’s (satisfies a sense of accomplishment and closure)
- You get to sew (favorite hobby activity) with other sewing buddies (always fun and a bonus)
- You get to eat great food without cooking and cleaning up (Thanks to the great kitchen staff at Camp St. Christopher)
- You get to take long walks on the beach with no one else around – (excellent for processing ideas and listening to nature)
- You get to have real quiet time with God. (Listeining to HIS voice in my heart is key to my mental health)
