I was never really 'trained' in the sewing arts. I went, wild-eyed, to the craft store and haphazardly bought a sewing machine, pattern and some material in a pathetic attempt to keep my mind occupied during my hubby's first deployment. I did learn to sew, a bit and made my daughter and I matching outfits, lots of Halloween costumes and a few other easy items (except for that Scarlet O'Hara dress I had always vowed to make-That was one vow I ALMOST broke!)
Today, I sat myself down to work on the 6 sets of 2 squares and got them all cut and sewn together. I would love to say that I have been turned on to the quilting arts and that I am looking forward to my next sewing project. The truth be told: I am a crocheter at heart. The entire time I sat there measuring, cutting and stitching I was mentally preparing my next crochet project. I have a wonderful Wookie Water Holder all cooked up in my mind. I'd be done with it by now had I not been stuck at that stupid sewing machine. I'm crossed-eyed now because my machine's light keeps flickering every time my toe touches that pedal.
I'm proud of myself, because I was able to 'get 'er dun' and I can't wait to see the final product, but I am more happy than I am proud-happy that I'm DONE and can finally get back to CROCHET! :)
