Sew What?!

Oh geez, I would be a sewing fiend if I would just trust myself. I learned how to sew in high school, and have paid two different sewing diva friends to teach me since, and I have still never made anything more than a simple sheath dress, a tank, and a couple of skirts. I have so many ideas... and I have a sewing machine... come on already! I can be one of those people who trusts myself to learn from a book or the total opposite and need to be shown by someone step by step... for the machine I feel I need the step by step. I can hand stitch with out any problem ;) Anyway, I asked Maureen, at Victory, for some lessons. She can't do it for a month or more but suggested I find a good book in the meantime. So, today, while in Calgary picking up our good friend, Jean Marc, who is visiting from Ottawa, I checked out the titles in Chapters and I think I found the one. It is called Sew Subversive and it pretty much starts right at the beginning and seems easy to follow. Now I just need an Etsy sale or two so I can buy it. Can't wait!!

Have faith! I have several sewing projects in the midst of completion. I loose faith half way through and put it aside. Great ideas...

Thanks, Kerry! I am part of a blog called Create-A-Day and there is a woman there who calls those projects UFOs (Unfinished Objects...). I love that term :) Best wishes with yours...
