I bought a sewing machine! I am very excited to be learning to sew. My first project is this skirt option C, using the materials and trim in the picture. I am very excited. Probably a little too excited.

On a side note, I would like to say that I am disgusted that my blog pictures never seem to be crisp. I can hold my camera out the car window on a vacation and end up with pristine landscape images (and I have), but I set up the lights, haul out the tripod, and plan for half an hour, and these blog pics are never clear. Grrrr. I know that’s a defensive and self conscious thing to say, but I’ve said it.

      I really should take some progress photos- it’s actually close to being done now.
      *hugs back*
