good evening friends! it's late, and i'm sewing.
i don't really know how to sew. what i do know is how to mend holes in jeans (my mom taught me this and it has been a life saver). however, the last time i mended any jeans was over christmas break with my mom in tow... meaning she would help me whenever i needed and show me over and over how to get the bobbin thread in with the needle thread (uh i don't know technical terms). she isn't here tonight (she is sleeping in her bed in georgia), and i felt a little nervous doing it on my own. i discovered this weekend that i was walking around vegas with large holes in the crotch of my pants. awesome. they are my favorites so no matter what, i had to figure it out. and i did. i totally figured it out on my own and i'm so very proud of myself.
aren't you proud mom??
for me, if i want to really do something, i just have to do it. i've been avoiding my sewing machine because i'm not very knowledgeable in that department. maybe not knowledgeable, but definitely capable. sometimes you just have to take the extra step and get the sewing machine out. like, actually take it out of the cupboard and put it on your kitchen table. now get the scissors. cut the denim. pin it. do your thing.
now that the machine is out and i've accomplished something tonight, i think i feel pretty comfortable tackling some other projects that i've been wanting to do for awhile.
i'm feeling very domestic right now.
and with that, i am off to bed.
