So here's the thing: I've kind of been holding out on you guys. This fancy new sewing machine showed up at our house over a week ago, and I haven't mentioned it once. Maybe that's because I still haven't gotten up the nerve to do anything but fill a bobbin and thread the needle. I think I wanted to do something amazing with the machine and then tell you about it. I'm realizing now, though, that I really just need to turn the darned thing on and get comfortable with it.
I think this is the weekend for it. The weekend forecast is rain and I don't have anything better to do. Besides, if I don't get to work, my partner-in-crime might sweep in and start sewing up a storm, and then I'll just be jealous. I have to admit, he is more mechanically-inclined than I am, and whether I like it or not, a sewing machine is--by definition--a machine.
A machine that I intend to master.
If you haven't already decided which project to tackle this weekend, here are a few ideas to get you started:
