I love sewing. Honestly, there is nothing like that feeling of accomplishment when you finish that dress, skirt, quilt, pillow, whatever it is you made.
I love when I get a compliment and can go ‘oh, I made that.’ The look of wonder with the inevitable ‘you made that?!?’ I just love it!
I used to get teased, ‘why don’t you just buy it?’ But not anymore. Everyone in my life knows of my passion now, and accepts it.
I remember when I asked for my first sewing machine, I was 16. No one thought I would actually use it so I ended up with a rinky dink 100 dollar machine from Sears.
I wore out the engine I sewed too much! I now have three machines, a serger, a battery powered ‘on the go’ machine, and a fairly nice standard machine.
They all see far too much wear! I wouldn’t have it any other way!
This week I am working on a quilt, nothing spectacular and fancy, just a pink and purple thing for my daughter.
I hope to finish this quilt (at least the top) by Sunday. Then I get to pick another project!
I’ve got this insane goal to whittle down my fabric stash… Sooo I have many things to make!
