sewing.




one of my ultra lovely christmas gifts this year from mom and daddy was a sewing machine. my mom and dad kept saying that they were so excited because daddy had come up with a fabulous gift for me. this is really funny because dad is not the most creative in the gift department. even though he has lived with all women for years, he typically left the gift buying up to mom.
anyway, he did good this year and i love my machine. i haven't taken lessons yet, i just went to a quick overview to learn how to use my machine.
all i know is that sewing is something that i always thought was super hard and intimidating, and even though i don't consider myself an expert.... i must say my panels and shams turned out just as i wanted them to.
i told jess that a monkey could sew if they had the right machine :)
point is... if you think you need a new hobby and are interested in sewing, go get a machine, a quick lesson, some fabric and thread and you'll be amazed at what you can do!
hope everyone has a fabulous week!

LOVE the curtains and shams!! Great job!! I've always felt intimidated about sewing myself. The only thing I can sew is a button or stitch a small hole - thats pretty much it. But this makes me want to sew. I have a older sewing machine of my Mom's - but that may not work as well as the new ones that are out these days. But maybe I'll give it a try.

Have fun with other things you end up sewing. =)
