Do you believe in natural remedies? I treated myself to this affordable bottle of Remedies To Roll for pulse points, in the hope of encouraging a studious nature at the desk and sewing machine. I love the scent and certainly my senses are woken. Might be worth ensuring there are no smears of oil left on your wrists to contaminate fabric.
Good light is essential at this time of year and my sewing area has an arrangement of lamps. It really does make all the difference. Even then, you might want to judge what sewing steps you take and when. Hand sewing by lamplight in the evening? Forget it!
And whilst we’re being all holistic, I’d really recommend an air humidifier for your sewing space. My skin is already dry and itchy from the central heating pumping out warm air. Plus, pretty!
At this time of year, it’s easy to put everyone else first. Take some time and gift buying for yourself!
