After spending some time planning, I decided to drag out the sewing machine and see if I could do some practice runs. I have identified my problem with sewing. I can't measure properly. Michael spent a lot of time showing me how to measure. I guess I was sleeping during math class many years ago! He reminded me that he is a woodworker and sewing is the same except you are working with cloth instead of wood. Makes sense to me...I was just thankful that I had his help. After a few hours of work, I finally made a square that I was satisfied with for my quilt.
I took my time and didn't feel pressured like I did at the sewing class. I actually enjoyed the time spent today. I wasn't near as stressed as I had been last week. I didn't even need Tylenol! I did go hunt a pair of reading glasses and that made it easier too. It does help when you can see what you are doing. And the best part??? I didn't even cut my hand! See, I told you we had a good day.
grace and peace,
