It’s been so long since the last time I used my sewing machine that I have been afraid to use it. I got a new, really cool sewing cabinet last year then cleared out and cleaned out a room to sew. Then the wood stove moved in and after that things went from bad to worse as the room turned into a catch-all for everything I didn’t really want. Since I’ve been on my minimizing and purging bender, I’ve gotten back to where I can reach my sewing machine.
You know, the one I haven’t used in all this time since I set it up.
The one I’ve been carting around across the country even though I haven’t used it in maybe 10 years. Or more. (Not even sure anymore!)
So then I decided I wanted to make one of Great-Aunt Ruby’s aprons.
I talked my cousin’s wife, Sheryl, into coming over today to make sure I didn’t hurt myself with the sewing machine or maybe because I couldn’t remember how to wind the bobbin. But once I started doing it, I remembered how.
I can’t believe I procrastinated about using the sewing machine again, after making a room where the sewing machine can stay set up all the time and everything! I was just…afraid to get back on the horse. Er, bobbin.
Oh, the things I can sew now! Maybe I should sew some little light day dresses just so people don’t catch me in my chore boots and t-shirts…….. Hmm.
(I’ll have a post soon all about the apron.)
