There was no new LOST tonight. This deeply saddens me. My whole week is messed up! I have nothing to contemplate, nothing to talk about....I'm so LOST. (Haha! :D) Hopefully I can make it until next week...it will prepare me for when LOST actually ends. :(
Now...I feel like I've been keeping things from blogland, acting like my newfound hobby is my first experience with sewing. It's not. Let me tell you a little story.
My Mom is an amazing seamstress. She sewed all of my (and my sibling's) Halloween costumes as long as I can remember and she always sewed other cool things for us growing up. In 8th grade, I decided to take a sewing class in hopes that I inherited my Mom's ability. I didn't. Halfway through the year I carelessly sewed right through one of my fingers, just barely missing the bone. Totally freaked me out. Though it really didn't hurt as badly as you think it would, I never wanted to get near a sewing machine again. To top it all off...I sucked. I sucked big time. My projects were horrendous and I got sew (haha!) frustrated that I basically just gave up. I sewed a few things in that time but I never really got back into it. Until now that is! I don't really know what sparked it, but I'm happy to run with it! Besides, I think it will be a good skill to have in the future.
So...there's the truth. I'm not a real newbie. I like to think of myself as "born again." Phew, I feel so better now that that's out in the open! ;)
On a happier note, I am much more capable now that I am older and wiser. :) I just finished this hot/cold bag from Make it and Love it. I love the fabric, it's so springy and fresh!
