I think I have a new hobby

Check this out.


Yeah. I totally made that.

It used to be just a couple pieces of fabric and a spool of thread.

I took a beginner sewing class. Three classes, actually. And I really enjoyed it. I've been wanting to learn how to sew so I could make some home decor basics, like window treatments, pillows, maybe a table runner or napkins or something. So the class was like a test: do I like this enough to go out and get myself a sewing machine? Am I competent enough to complete a simple sewing project?

Turns out the answer to both questions is yes.

You're pretty awesome. I wish I lived closer so you could spend a cozy fall afternoon teaching me everything you know. I too would like to be able to make nice curtains, etc.

Thanks, ladies, I'm quite proud of it! Now I just need to get a sewing machine before I forget everything I learned!
