I'm working on my first sewing project without my mom's help. OK, well she's still helping through the phone, but not in-person help this time. I'm making 8 cornhole bags for my husband. I thought this would be an "easy" project, but I'm learning that sewing is not necessarily ever easy. After ripping the stitches out of the first bag several times, I left my desk in this state and took a day-long break. This weekend I'm returning to the project with a fresh attitude. I learned that my sewing machine will doublestich (yay for twin needles) and I'm trying out some other solutions. So far, sewing has taught me that I'm not a very patient person...this hobby will definitely help with that! I will not give up!

This lovely shadow cast itself on the wall of my office this morning. It's a mix of morning sun and the tree outside my window. I felt very zen. Happy Friday!

  1. I've just started trying to crochet, which my grandmother taught me when I was a kid. I'm dying to learn how to sew though. Hoping to invest in a sewing machine sometime soon. Photography supplies are my first priority for now. Let me know how it goes!
