    My Mom Could Sew Anything....

    Me, I get confused trying to thread the bobbin!  Even so, I am saving my pennies for my own sewing machine, and trying to find a place to set it up. I enjoy every week of Project Runway...i wish they would show more of the actual work time, and less of the drama.

    It was something worth sharing as it is something that few others dare to do! It was a fun time! I found a moving sale and got 2.5 meters for 70% off and I bought a series of other things but didn't end up using them for my dress, I intend to use them for other projects though...
