I really, really want to sew. Really bad. I want to make a million things, but every time I sit down in front of my sewing machine I get overwhelmed. If it isn’t already set up to just push the peddle and sew, I have NO IDEA what I am doing. I couldn’t change a spool of thread on that thing if I tried my hardest. Reading manuals is completely pointless because none of it makes a lick of sense unless I SEE someone doing it. Not to mention, I kinda suck at sewing straight although I know that with practice I SHOULD get better at that.
Usually when I feel this way about stuff I end up giving up on it after a while and getting interested in something else. It has happened with all other things crafty before… making wood letters, painting, knitting, scrapbooking… but sewing I have never stopped wanting to do. The more I see of things I want to buy, the more I just want to make it myself. Blankets, dresses, bags, skirties, diapers… you name it, I want to create it.
It’s times like this I really wish my Grams was still around to teach me. =(
