I am feeling pretty darn good about myself!
It's only February 4th and I have already tackled 2 items on my 2013 to do list!
Last week I shared how I organized our garage in a way that I can use it for a workshop, we can keep our family outdoor gear there, and we can park a car there. AHHHH that one feels really good!
Now, onto my next adventure, I took a sewing class!
It was 2 sessions and I now know how to thread my machine, load the bobbin, untangle my bobbin thread, sew some straight lines,
untangle my bobbin thread, replace a presser foot, and untangle my bobbin thread (again).
I also learned my old machine is a piece of junk and that is why I keep getting tangled-I was just glad it wasn't my fault!
The first week I made a sub par pillow case that isn't fit to be shown around. But, the second week I actually created something tangible and kinda cute.
I actually made this cute lil drawstring bag and the best part is,
I Could Do It Again!
It is lined and works, and doesn't have any holes, or crazy mishaps. While making this, and cursing as I tore out yet another crookedy seem, a lovely grandma wandered by and said,
"A man riding by on a horse sure wouldn't notice that crooked line!"
Love it. I gave it to my daughter and she looked at me like I was a superhero.
"You made that????"
Yes I did, with no pattern, pinning, tape measure, or even sample (can you say-questionable teacher?) and it was still successful.
It feels so exciting and gratifying to really accomplish some items from my to do list. Learning new skills and creating useful stuff-it is awesome!
Is there anything on your to do list that you have tackled lately?
Any new skills or projects you have tried?
How empowered are you feeling from it?
Because I feel like...well a superhero!
