Hey Friends!!! How in the hell are you?!
I am…well…I’m not quite sure as of late, so I’ve decided to force myself back into creating happiness all around me.
I don’t necessarily want to, but I think if I force it, I will in turn find that I do really want to and I will get back to me quicker.
I hope that makes sense, if not…well try and keep up will you? :)
About a month (probably longer) ago, all of my sewing projects came to a quick halt when I discovered how to read a crochet pattern. Additionally, I was super put off by the fact that I didn’t have the necessary supplies to properly complete the sewing projects I had in mind. I love knits, all kinds. I can’t stand cotton and hate that it’s so much easier to work with than knit. I’d reached an impasse where my abilities and supplies met when wanting to make some knit clothing for my girls and myself: no serger, broke my only twin needle, and no walking foot. Not to mention no money to buy these things even if the stores in this town even HAD what I needed. Can you believe that between 2 craft stores and Wal-Mart that not a single twin-needle could be found? How lame!
So needless to say, I got discouraged, decided that crochet was the way to go for right now and I pushed my sewing machine over and shoved my projects in the corner.
Well…My Mama is a super sweet chick. She knew what was up and decided to be an amazing mama and help a sad seamstress out! She got me all the stuff I needed, I was so happy, my mom rocks. She didn’t even tell me she was going to, what an awesome surprise!
Check it out!
THANK YOU MAMA!!!
She got me these probably a couple of weeks ago already, so I’m feeling pretty guilty for not using them yet. So, with a little helpful inspiration from my friend Ben over at Spider-Man Mashup Cosplay Costume who is getting his very first sewing machine in the mail TOMORROW, I’ve decided that today is the freaking day. My baby is coming out of retirement and I’m going to learn how to use this bad-ass walking foot to my ever-growing advantage! (Rawr! I totally felt like I needed to rip my shirt off like the Hulk right then).
This blogging thing has already took up most of my morning; I have teeth to brush, chill’ren to satiate, and sewing to do!
Peace Out Homies :)
