There is an unfamiliar sound at my house. It's kind of a humming, a whirring.... Yes, it's a sewing machine! We have had our sewing machine for a few years but no one knew how to use it. Then, my brave husband decided it was time to get some use out of it. He is an engineer, so no problem for him. I am another story. I sit and drool over things that others can create. I wish and wish, but the sewing fairy just doesn't show up.:(
Well, my wonderful friend, Robin, hosted a Christmas Stocking Swap and I decided it was time to stop being a chicken. Maybe it's because I will be turning 40 soon, I don't know, but I am tired of being such a weenie! So, this past week, each member of our family has done a bit of sewing. I am still a bit intimidated, but now I can see why sewing can be a joy! Yippee! Here is a peek at the stocking that I made today- my first ever!
These are the stockings that my girls made. They designed and created them and are so proud. Who would have ever thought you would hear a sewing machine in MY house? I have to give Jeff a big "Thank You" as he was a great teacher. Thanks Sweetie!:)
