My Friend Marilyn has passed this "Treasure" award on to me, even though I don't quilt! I think that is so sweet! She has been trying to get me to quilt for YEARS. I think I have come a long way, I actually own a sewing machine now, and I have sewn on it. AND the other day the seam wore out on my fav pair of jeans and I sewed it back together!!!!!!!!! AMAZING!
I actually wanted to sew when I was younger. My Grandmother made all my clothes and my doll clothes and I equated it to good homemaking. So naturally I would try it. Well, I had an awful time of it. (I was teaching myself)
Imagine this - I am at a sewing machine, I have tried to do an "easy" pattern. It has not turned out for the umpteenth time. I pull the project (shirt) out of the machine wad it up and throw it across the room with a loud gutteral sound and I walk out of the room, slamming the door.
I honestly don't think I opened that door for DAYS and that was the last of it until I met Marilyn and slowly, slowly she has helped me through the healing process. I still make gutteral noises when things don't turn out the way they are supposed to, but I rarely wad them up and throw them across the room.
I am passing this award onto Emily. She's a blog I've been visiting lately and her Creme Brulee Diet Post had me roaring last night. I hope you enjoy her Blog as much as I do!
