Ever have one of those moments when you lose your sanity? Probably not. It's probably just me.
Okay, well I had visions of creating these long beautiful dresses for Presley, new window treatments in every room, and embroidering anything that would hold a stitch. My family would ooh and ahh over my creativity. They would tell me how talented and creative that I was. Ooh, Ahhh, Ooh, Ahh.
You get the picture.
Well, the day after I got my glorious sewing machine it happened. I felt like Ralphie in a Christmas Story. I received the one gift that I was dying to get my chubby little fingers on. Ralphie got shot in the eye, I got a big time reality check.
What was I thinking?? Me, Sew? Oh, good Lord.
One month later, my sewing machine is still sitting in the dining room...in the box. The "Sewing for Dummies" book neatly placed on top. I did read a few pages of the book....and quickly put it down. Okay, this is sewing for dummies?? Then I need a "Sewing for Dumber Dummies".
I called my mother in law and asked her subtly if she happened to have the receipt to the sewing machine that she had gotten me for Christmas. Bury me now. I felt like a quitter, who am I kidding..I am a quitter, but I am totally okay with that. =)
She had the receipt and I got the money for it. Hot dog!! Christmas again!! WooHoo!
So, that's my sewing saga.
It's freeing in a way. I know sewing is not for me. Moving on.
