100 till I drop
I'm pretty much in love with my sewing machine. (Well, I love it, it doesn't exactly love me back.) Can you tell? No? huh. I'm sure some people might call my love an obsession. But hey, I'm getting my moneys worth out of this sucker, ya know? Actually, my sewing machine was a christmas gift from my parents. "Debee tell me what you'd like for Christmas..." me, "A SEWING MACHINE!"
My parents I'm sure were like, "yep yet another crazy idea from our middle child" What were you expecting? :) LOL. I have the best ideas- just not everyone thinks so. But anyway, so the machine was a gift. THE BEST GIFT. I'm happy, excited about scrapping and creating with it. So far, I've made 12 items with it. NONE you can wear- but whatever. I'm happy. So yes, that there scap page above is a testament to just how much I love my sewing machine. ALMOST as much as I love Mr. Handsome. JK!!!! ;) I sat and sewed that baby what seemed like forever but dang it was awesome. The result is not exactly what I envisioned- ( more like my dream quilt ) so look for more sewing on pages.Ahhh the suspense.
Oh yeah, I easily get sidetracked LOL, you might ask what my title "100" means? Yes. (just nod) Okay, I'll tell you anyway since you asked to nicely :) It's the number of pieces I want to create with my sewing machine- regardless of it's real purpose which is to sew clothing. So there ya go. When I invest in something like say, shoes, I spend anything over $50 (I live in a real world although I'd sure like to move to Anthropologie land) I HAVE to wear the pair of shoes at the very least 50 times. Just to make me feel better- AND because I have the slightest case of OCD. So I've created 12 pieces so far and am fashionably pleased and happy and feeling creative still. 88 to go-and then I'll give it a break. So you'll probably get sick of seeing so much sewing. But just know that it makes me ever so happy and tingly inside and don't ya just know that's all that matters? Really. Sew a little. (Or in my case- just pretend you know how and don't worry about what other people think) I don't care as long as were both happy :) Okay? Okay- off to sew something :)
