I like to think I can “do” deadlines. There’s nothing quite like the adrenaline of a big deadline inching closer and closer by every second.
At least if you make a mistake in an article, you can get it corrected in a matter of seconds once you’ve spotted it. But say you end up sewing something topsy turvy, you’re guaranteed to have a solid half hour of unpicking on your hands – and that’s only if you were lucky enough to make a mistake on the bodice.
This is partly why the Twitter dress has taken me so long to get done. But with the Wales Blog Awards presentation coming up this week, I really wanted to get the dress done so I’d have a me-made dress for the evening – it would be a bit embarrassing if I wore anything else, wouldn’t it?
I don’t know what it is about an imposing deadline, but I managed to get most of the dress done last night! A lot of what I have left now is hand-sewing, which I can do on the train back to Cardiff tomorrow evening.
How satisfying! Do you perform well under deadlines?
