Adventurous or Foolish
For sometime now I have been wanting to learn how to sew. So after much debating on if I should take the big plung into the sewing world I decided to give in. Saturday morning I got up and went to Hancock Fabrics. Everyone was very nice and helpful. They set me up with a good sewing machine and all the necessities and off I went. Well Sunday I get the sewing machine out to start learning how to use it. I open up the directions and they seem easy enough. I start by loading the spool to transfer the thread to the bobbin. I followed the directions word for word and still the thread would wind loose on the bobbin every time. After several tries I began to wonder what I had gotten myself into. I really don't want to give up on the dream yet so I have decided that it is time to call for back up. I am going to find someone to help me get started. I do not yet know who the lucky person will be but my search has begun. Hopefully, in the near future I will be able to post pictures of me sewing a straight line!
