I've been feeling crafty. As in sewing crafty.

I think it's a problem created by a combination of things. First of all, I've been watching a LOT of Gilmore Girls. And the illustrious Lorelai sews all of the time. She makes awesome, crafty stuff all of the time and every lives happily ever after. It's WONDERFUL.

The second part of this is my increasing frugality. Every frugal super hero uses a sewing machine to make wonderful, low cost gifts and things for their home, right -- right?!

That's what I thought.

And so tomorrow I am planning on buying a sewing machine. I know, I know -- you didn't know I know how to sew. Well, I do. I used to sew a lot Back In the (13-year-old) Day, but I never really had the patience for it.

My shiny new toy has been in use for several years by an old lady who bought it 0n the Air Force Base for the purpose of making quilts. I more than likely will NOT be making quilts.

What I DO hope to make are super hero capes for Dave, decorative burp clothes for friends with new babies, curtains for our next house ... sounds easy enough, doesn't it?

We'll see about that.

  1. Despite all the reasons I've ABHORRED the idea of buying a sewing machine, I'm starting to warm up to the idea more. Go for it!
