Like another hole in the head
Inspired by my crafty buddy, Kelli, I've pulled out my sewing machine. Mind you, my machine is probably 30 years old and weighs a freaking ton.
Yeppo, baby, that is a 1970's Kenmore sewing machine. 4 whole stitches. But that is all I really need. I haven't used it regularly in years, so the other night (thanks to Kelli's brilliant suggestion) I dug out the manual and followed the directions to clean the inside and oil it up. Saving me $60, I might add. With Brian's help, she is running better than I ever remember. I decided to toss decorating schemes out the window and set myself up in my bedroom. Now I have a little crafty corner!
Last night I finally had a little time, so I made this:
It is a little padded pouch for sewing or knitting/crochet tools. If you look at the second picture carefully, you can see the various pockets. Pretty cool, huh? For not having sewn in forfreakingever, I did really well. My stitches were nice and even and I didn't wack off any fingers when using my rotary cutter (if you only knew what an accomplishment that is, right Brian?).
Seems as though I might actually start getting to have some alone time now. Let's see if I can get this right. The Princess is back together with The Boyfriend (I won't even go there) who is also friends with the Star who now has a girlfriend who just happens to be the Princess' best friend. So, they are all yapping together on 3 separate phones or on conference calls and running back and forth to tell each other to call each other and when they can't they tell each other what is going on.
Kind of makes your brain explode, doesn't it? See why I need a crafty corner? Now, if I can just get the damn cats to leave me alone... Hey, maybe I should set myself up in the shed?
