Well, I have to say for years I wanted to learn how to sew. Of course I put the cart before the horse and bought a sewing machine about 10 years ago one Black Friday in Walmart. I thought I could read the instructions and it would all fall into place. Needless to say I was sadly mistaken.
Okay, now lets talk about the present. I have been taking sewing lessons from a woman who is has the patience of a saint. I went there a few times and she would go over the basics, threading the machine, putting the bobbin in, making the bobbin. Then I would go home with homework and panic, show up for my lesson and tell her I thought about throwing the machine out the window. Well I have gotten past that and am working on my first official project, duvet covers for my boys. (I did have another project I had started on my own and that was an apron that I never finished, and barely started. Enough said)
This night I was working on sewing ties onto the duvet so that the down comforter will be secure when inside the cover. That task went off without a hitch, except for the one make I forgot what I was suppose to do there.
Phase 1 Duvet... check.
Phase 2 Duvet... this weeks lesson.
I will keep you posted.
