As I was doing laundry, I came across an old comforter that has ripped seams. Of course seeing this made me think, what the heck am I waiting for? So I ran upstairs, plugged the sewing machine in (the fact that I know where all the parts are is a miracle considering all the construction in this house.) Halfway through the crooked seam repair, I broke my needle. Then I realized that I couldn't unscrew the old needle. So now I will have to wait until my husband can help me unscrew it, then I need to find a new needle (under the seat that goes with the sewing machine?) so I can finish it another time.
This whole scenario made me realize a couple of things:
1. I need to get organized if I want to do this more often.
2. I need some serious practice if I eventually want to be able to make these:
I am thinking, perhaps these might be a good project to attempt, after I finish the comforter:
It says that it is for beginners. Hopefully that means me. What projects do you see on DIY sites or in pictures that you want to try?
