How much sewing is Too Much Sewing? Lets find out ....
Before we start with serious topic, i would like to Wish All of You Happy Friendship Day! i know it was yesterday, 7th August, 1st Sunday of August, but i was so held up to access my Laptop (Oh yes my sister gifted me with a laptop for this b'day! will do a post on the lovely black beauty a bit later!) as my Darling Daughter was not keeping all that well with stomach ailments, and hence the delay, it is always better than never isn't it, so Dear Readers of Adithis Amma Sews, Happy Friendship Day!
Now lets us get on with the topic of the month, probably, topic which we will discuss all this month of August!
How do you know that you have reached the sewing limit for the day? What if you are amidst sewing a pet project of yours,or may be sewing on tight deadline, or sewing for a loved one or sewing for a special occassion which can't be missed, then you realize that it is on the verge of breakdown due to overload, no I am not talking about the wear and tear your sewing machine undergoes, it does, agreed but its just a machine(i know my heart aches while calling it just a machine, when it is kind of your soul mate and sewing your spiritual being!)
Imagine what happens to your body? We all get sour shoulders, pain on fingers , strain in calf muscle / legs, i thought that since i had motor machine, i have nothing to worry, i was so wrong! My Yoga teacher asked me about my heat boils and tried to analyse why they don't seem to go away! After a discussion it dawned on us that my sewing on motorized machine and the heat the foot pedal generates indeed is harmful to my legs and the damage doesn't stop just there, but prolonged exposure to heat of electric pedal leads to clots in uterus, now the panic bells rang for me!
This deeply affected me and i wanted to share this with you all and may be we can together find ways of preserving our bodies, and still be able to continue our passion of sewing! Please leave your suggestions, i plan to discuss about the issue all through the month of August, who knows the tip that you have may as well save someone's health and hobby or livelihood to some!
