It’s Been A While or Limbering Up The Sewing Machine

Hi ya’ll and welcome to this Friday post, It’s Been A While or Limbering Up The Sewing Machine.  I hope you like it.

On The Brother

A little bit of background – about a year and a half ago, I decided I wanted to learn to sew.  My mom was a great seamstress, making a lot of my clothes when I was growing up, but for some reason, she didn’t pass on her expertise, probably due to lack of interest on my part. I never took any Home Ec classes in school, don’t know how I dodged that bullet, again, probably due to my disinterest.  I did take a stab at learning when Big Mommy  was little, but at that time, it was hopeless – think working full time with a two year old.  It was a fail before it even started.

Fast forward to the present and Pinterest…

I keep seeing cute cute cute (perfect) things that people are running up on their machines and with (then) four grandgirls, I decide, once more, to learn to sew.  I buy a decent sewing machine, the Brother I refer to, and start stitching.  I’m not showing my failures – and there are many –  but eventually, the pattern speak started making sense and I had a few projects that didn’t end up in the trash.

A not quite finished dress for me. I hope the final photo is better!  FYI – This dress was a Craftsy  kit, which contained everything but the thread.

So, that’s what I’ve been up to this week.  Do you have something to brag about?
