It’s been twenty years.
That’s the last time I’ve used a sweing machine.
I’ve been thinking about sweing for a while now. Since I dnot have a whole lot of “free time” right now I thought I’d wait a few years and then look into getting a sweing maching of my own.
But then after Christmas I saw these $300 machines go on sale for $99. And I just so happened to have Christmas money burning a whole in my pocket.
So I did it. I bought a mchine!
I’ve had some projects in mind, but frankly, I’ve been intimidated!
I couldn’t even remember how to thread a bobbin or whatever else I was supposed to know.
Luckily I have several sewing friends in my life.
Today my neighbor (and friend) Kim came and tutored me through it.
I felt like I was re-learning to ride a bike. Shaking. Nervous. A tiny bit fearful. Hesitant.
But also excited!
And you know what? It was like riding a bike! I picked it back up in no time.
Sure, I need a little practice. But even stil, my first project turned out great. I made super hero capes for Levi and his friend Max for their birthdays. (Shhhh… don’t tell them. It’s a secret!) I love the way they turned out and I’m excited to see them running around in them.
So… sewing, I’m baaa-ack.
How fun. A new hobby for a new year.
Merry Christmas to me.
Q for you: When is the last time you tried something new? Or old, again?
