sew wonderful

i am strangely proud of my less-than-perfect first sewing project- a throw pillow for my bedroom. my fabulous little sister (who has major, ninja-like sewing skills) was kind enough to bring over her sewing machine (i have a wicked old hand-me-down that needs to be repaired), shop with me for fabric, and walk me through the sewing process. i had a lot of fun and in my constant striving to be a better homemaker i hope that i will be able to tackle more projects soon (and that it will get easier)! anyway, i just wanted to share my masterpiece!

I am so happy for you! Keep sewing it up and I'd love to continue and see your creations. You're cute and I can't wait to see you this summer.

I am so impressed! I have tried to have my mom teach me how to sew like five times and each time she ends up taking over and I don't learn anythng. So now I just have her do something if I need it.
