I'M GOING TO LEARN HOW TO SEW!
There. I said it! I got a brand spankin new sewing machine for Christmas about 8 years ago because I wanted to learn how to sew. Ever since then, that new sewing machine has been following me from home to home...untouched, unused, unloved.
NOW is the time. I am finally feeling the promptings to DO THIS. There are SO many things I want to make that require a sewing talent and I have made excuses long enough. One of which being that I am too old to ever really learn ALL the secrets and tricks to sewing. Crap. That's what that is...crap. I'll never be too old and who's to say I won't pick it up super extremely fast?! ANother excuse I use it that I'm a perfectionist. I only want to do something if I can be the BEST at it. So if I can't be on project runway, then I don't wanna even try. Stupid. I'm ridiculous in my thinking and I'll just have to get over that. I have great sewers in my genes...actually AMAZING sewers in my genes. It's in my blood. "It's what I LIVE for." No not really. But seriously. It is. I want this. I can do it! All those who support me in this new venture say "Aye!" (is that the 'I' you say or is it the letter?)
ps...attention all you great sewers out there! don't make me call you out by name (marian, mutha, valinda, sandra, nana, momo, stephanie toland and yes, even YOU lindsay and amy and many more who keep their talents secret). I need all your support. If you have any advice on where I should start from LITERALLY square ONE (like i don't even know how to thread the sewing machine needle or fill the bobbin up or anything) then NOW is the time for you to raise your voice and give me suggestions!!!
