chool started a few weeks ago, and even though I don't stay too busy...I still find it really hard to do cutesy, crafty things. I have all of these great ideas bouncing around in my head, and the few times I try to accomplish something...huge disaster.
I'm not sure if I told you or not, but I have this adorable orange and white polka dotted fabric that I was going to use to make a Tennessee Vols shirt for my niece. I cut out a big Power T and started sewing it onto a plain long sleeve black t-shirt. I had no sooner started than my sewing machine ATE the fabric... Seriously. I had to take apart part of the machine just so that I could yank the shirt and the huge thread ball out of the mechanism. Annoyed but determined, I found another shirt, cut out another T, and started again. I got no further on this one than the machine ate ANOTHER shirt!
I still haven't tried again.
Maybe in a few weeks when I'm less annoyed. My machine has only done that once! Twice in a row? Ridiculous.
Also on the agenda...a yarn wreath, a scarf, and that quilt that I've been working on forever.
