Like so many people, I have a bucket list. Some things on my list are pretty achievable. Others, however, have a few question marks after them.
Learning to sew is on my list.
I took Home Ec when I was in 8th grade, and I got an F in sewing. I tried. I did. Our assignment was to make a rag doll with clothes. Before I realized it, I had sewn the head on backwards, and the doll had a huge case of turn toes. Ever since, I have had an aversion to sewing.
These have been my tools to use in lieu of sewing, and they have worked very well.
But it’s time to learn to sew. I have visions of pillows, and maybe a patch-y quilt thing when I get better, maybe even sewing a basic curtain..
To encourage me, my parents gave me a sewing machine for Christmas. I pulled it out of the box, I took my first look at it, and immediately I thought that I need to enroll in Berlitz. All those stitch choices look like a foreign language to me.
On the top of the machine, I see some arrows. And I thought to myself “hmm, those arrows must mean in one ear and out the other….???”
I sat there and pondered.
I tried to make sense of it all, knowing I need to watch the instructional DVD that came included with the machine.
I have some big goals. And a lot of pillows to sew. And pre-cut suiting fabric swatches ready to be sewn together into a patch-y quilt thing.
Ugh! Sew Me Strength!!
