Laura, a reader from Germany, asked a great question the other day through my Facebook page. She writes:
I am done… Lasted me three days great book!
So I am going to start the experiment for me as it is written in the back… See how that goes!
But there’s one little thing I am curious about what happend to the sewing mashine, did you ever touch it? I sew myself and I never tought I’ll be able to do it. It’s fun, I promise! Hope you have a great day!
Really good question Laura! The sewing machine is still with me… and still bright and shiny. I have yet to pull the thing out and attempt to make something. But I have a couple of factors that make it much more likely that I will more than I won’t. 1) We just moved into this house and I still need curtains and cute decorative pillows which is good motivation to break out the ole’ sewing machine and 2) My mom has moved back to the same town we’re living in and knows how to sew (though I have to overlook the fact that she failed to pass on that sewing wisdom when I was younger). Hoping she’ll give me some lessons at some point! If you (or any of my other wonderful readers) have any pointers, please share!
Until then, it sits in my hall closet and waits.
But – I did achieve one sewing accomplishment – remember the “holey” scarf I attempted, where my husband said it looked more like a face mask than something you’d wear around your neck?
I redeemed myself by making an actual scarf, and presented it to my hubby when he came home from his deployment. Of course, by then, it was summer time in Louisiana, and now that we live in Louisiana, he may never actually need a wool knitted scarf, but he still has it. And he can say his wife made it.
And the holes are even and everything!
Thanks for writing, Laura! If you have a question, feel free to send it to my email address at email@example.com or at my Facebook page. Or if you still haven’t read the book for yourself, feel free to visit my online store and buy yourself a copy (or anywhere books are sold).
