Okay… so I don’t just knit! I can sew too :o)
I wanted to post because I’m excited I finally have my sewing machine set up (temporarily in the living room, but it will have to be moved somewhere else soon).
It’s an old Singer. At least as old as me (24), maybe even older. It used to belong to my Great Grandmother who passed away when I was about 5 or 6. The table goes with it and actually sets into it so it’s level with the rest of the table which I think is really the best feature and the reason I will always do my best to keep it running well. The table suffered a lot of damage before I learned how to sew. My mom used to set glasses on it all the time which caused a lot of damage to the top of the table. Underneath there are some marker scribbles and I will guess that one of my sisters did that. It’s been moved from the west coast to the east coast. It’s survived more moves than I can even reasonably count. I’ve been seeing a lot of crafty projects that are sewing related and I’m actually quite anxious to get back into sewing again. It’s much more economical to make a dress or skirt myself than to buy it… plus, then I know it will actually fit me properly!
And the thing I’m MOST excited about?? I’m part of the Spring Bag Swap on Craftster.org! This is my first swap on there and I’m thrilled about it. Laying in bed last night I was thinking about the bag I’ll be making and I’ve got a good idea of what I want to do. As per the usual as of late, when I don’t already know a pattern I want to make, I dream one up. I think this one will be really neat and I can’t wait to get to the fabric and yarn store this weekend so I can start work on it really soon!
Okay… back to work I go!
