A New Skill
One of my long standing goals that I have for myself is to learn some new skill every year and I have had a lot of fun over the years learning new things or improving on one that I had started but didn't really keep up. I have learned to rock climb, play tennis, scuba dive, ran a marathon, knit and now I have started sewing. Celina was making all these cute sewing projects and I thought hey that would be a fun little thing to be able to do. So this weekend Celina and Lindsay came over and they taught me how to sew and I made two aprons in just a few hours.The second apron we just figured out as we went luckily I had Celina and Lindsay to guide me along the way but they turned out way better than I ever imagined!! It was a lot of fun but a bit nerve racking when I broke two needles (lets not mention that to my mother) and making sure I was stitching straight. We got the cute fabric from Ikea which is definitely a great place to shop for fabric especially thick fabric. Next is a needle holder for all my bazillion knitting needles so that they will be better contained instead of rolling all over the place!!
