I finally figured out what is wrong with my sewing techniques... I've been doing it all wrong. My friend Terri sent me this fabulous sewing tip to help get me in the right direction.
Well, there ya go! I had no idea I was supposed to look as attractive as I could before I started sewing! Nor did I know I was supposed to make up my beds and wash the sink full of dirty dishes. Why, thank you, Singer! I just know that from now on, I am going to love, love, love sewing while I'm in my clean dress. With a martini in one hand in case hubby comes home unexpectedly, and a bag full of chalk in the other. Wait, that doesn't leave any hands for sewing. Oh, now I get it.
