Sewing: Day 1

To say my first stitches looked like the work of a drunken sewer would be putting it very kindly. They zigged, and they zagged, and did everything but end up in a straight line....until I realized I didn't put the foot down on the machine. After that discovery, I can proudly report, my stitches went one by one in a straight line.

Here's to hoping Ruth Singer's "The Sewing Bible" can transform me into that chic seamstress I know is buried deep within. I have daydreams of makeup bags, pillows, lunch totes, and so so much more.

So, Ruth, I hope you're up for the challenge.
