Wow, if you never want to be bored when you're sewing, try topstitching. Like, all over. Try it late at night, say midnight, when you're tired. Try it with a single needle when you should probably use a double--that way your heart will really pump when you've already sewn one line and the line you're working on must be absolutely parallel or else glaringly obvious. Try it in tight spaces, like on the outer or inner side of a pant leg where the body of the pants have already been sewn into shape. It's seriously exciting.
