For years, upon years, upon years my mother had a sewing machine. She made dressed for Cynthia and me. Dolls. Curtains.
Want to know what I learned to do? I learned how to insert the thread in the needle and only because she couldn't see and had the young vulnerable eyes do it for her.
So now, I am in sewing lust. I *borrowed* my sisters's sewing machines and have it all set up. After a frustrating day of trying to figure it out on Sunday my mom sewed two pillow cushions. Note, that I yet again, was relegated to threading the machine. :) But the dream lives on and I shall sew! How about this pretty little bonnet for Lily Kae? I can just imagine how cute she'll look in this!
