The Teacher was great - and she had a ton of great tips for us. Below is a sample of my work.. I attempted the alphabet.. I got to "k".
I can't wait to get to work on finishing some quilt tops that I've been holding onto until this was fixed.
Now for something so funny! The teacher of today's class started by reading a paragraph out of a 1949 Singer Sewing Machine Manual.
"Advice from a 1949 Singer Sewing Manual
Prepare yourself mentally for sewing. Think about what you are going to do. Never approach sewing with a sigh or lackadaisically. Good results are difficult when indifference predominates.
Never try to sew with a sink full of dirty dishes or beds unmade. When there are urgent housekeeping chores, do these first so your mind is free to enjoy your sewing.
When you sew, make yourself as attractive as possible. Put on a clean dress. Keep a little bag full of French chalk near your sewing machine to dust your fingers at intervals. Have your hair in order, powder and lipstick put on.
If you are constantly fearful that a visitor will drop in or your husband will come home and you will not look neatly put together, you will not enjoy your sewing as you should."
Can you believe that? Now, I admit, I do try and look good for my husband on a regular basis, however, I frequently sew in my jammie or sweatpants without makeup. How about you?
When I got home from the class, I must have been feeling domestically guilty. I threw in a load of laundry and cleaned out the fridge. And I'm proud to say that while cleaning out the fridge, I only discovered 1 science experiment.
Then I made this pie.
Then I think I'll put on some lipstick and go sew!Pin It
