As a wife I completed my first sewing project! I have sewed before, but I always had my mom there to help me so I was very proud of myself when I got out my sewing machine and did everything on my own. A few months ago, Jesse and I opened our new sheets for our bedding and as I was putting on one of the pillow cases I notice a rip down the seam. I was so bummed because they were brand new, but I could not return them because I had just washed them. I finally got around to fixing it. It was not the best stitching I have ever done, but it fixed the problem and now it is as good as new.
This is my craft center in our apartment. I have several different unfinished projects going on at once, but at least now I can cross off the pillow case. I am also working on an engagement photo album, I need to stitch a bead back on my bathing suit and I have a few buttons on coats that need to be sewed back on before the weather gets too cold. We will see how much actually gets done.
A special thanks goes out to my mom for teaching me how to sew over the years...I am glad it stuck with me.
