I did a thing last week.
I did a thing that sealed a commitment.
I'm sorry if your mind went to the gutter, but I sealed a commitment . . . to sewing . . . by purchasing a sewing machine.
Of course, I had to sew all day on Saturday, and it was just as nice as any other time that I've sat down to sew except this time was a wee bit more fun. I haven't read the manual just yet (I plan to) but, so far, I haven't managed to mess up anything.
About the plaid quilty card. I went to a sewing center last week because I was hoping to get good insight and information, and the lady who helped me was . . . well . . . really helpful. I called her the afternoon following my initial visit to see if I could come in to purchase the machine she demo'd, but there wasn't going to be enough time for me to get there before she needed to close. She had a physical therapy appointment scheduled for that afternoon, but she ended up cancelling that appointment (said she really didn't want to go anyway--ha!) so I could go in and take a brand new machine out of her store. She said she wanted to sit down with me to make sure I understood how to wind a bobbin, thread the machine, and a couple of other things. I very much appreciated EVERYTHING that she did to make it possible for me to bring that new machine home, so I made this card for her.
