|my first sewing book|
Two years ago (or was it three?), I decided I really wanted to learn to sew. I convinced my husband that I NEEDED a sewing machine and he fell for it. I got it for Christmas and his brother got me sewing books (one of them shown to the left) for Christmas that year. I am ashamed to admit that I have really only used the machine twice and have maybe flipped through the books three times. I am also ashamed that I tend to get really excited about a project and then lose interest rather quickly, like Rudy from The Cosby Show (I think it was Rudy). This is going to change...now. I have decided that I will not start something without a plan to finish it. I am going to set goals for myself and will achieve them. ...starting with opening one of my books and getting going on a project!
I am really hoping I am not the only one who has these great ideas in my head, plans them out in such great detail that I feel like I have actually completed the project, so I lose interest because I am so mentally exhausted from all of the planning. I am not sure that even makes sense to anyone but me. Ha!
Just looking at pictures of this shop, inspires me to get moving on this sewing thing, so I plan to stare at them daily:
459 Broome Street
New York, NY 10012
I am really going to do this! :)
