I borrowed my mom’s sewing machine with the intention to hem the edge of our curtains. The machine sat in our storage room, waiting for me to find time to do the project. That was over 3 1/2 months ago. Somehow the machine just intimidates me, with all its complex moving parts and sharp needle.
Finally, a couple of weeks ago, my mom taught me how to use the machine. Once I figured out how to get the thread hooked up, it wasn’t so bad. So far, I’ve hemmed the curtains, made a tie for Joshua, and made a few pairs of PJ pants for him as well.
