I have been out of commission with a terrible head cold for most of the week, but before I got the plague, I was busy becoming the next Martha Stewart. My mom has always been a great sewer, so naturally, she tried to pass that along to me when I was living at home; however, it never really stuck. She even offered to buy me sewing lessons for Christmas one year in high school, but I never took her up on the offer and I cannot tell you how many times over the years I have kicked myself for that. Last year, I expressed my newfound desire to sew, and low and behold my mom bought me a sewing machine for Christmas! I broke it out this week, and I was so proud of myself for using the manual and setting up the machine myself. It took me FOREVER, but it was so gratifying when I sewed that first stitch! I almost couldn't believe it when the machine actually made a straight stitch! And my sweet husband brought me home a beautiful gerber daisy to celebrate the accomplishment. :)
I hope you enjoy the weekend! We have a lot of plans to clean house and relax.
