I got to play on my machine for a few moments today. It's been hectic around here so I have not been able to begin my new project.

I have tho been able to tackle a little bit of mending we had hanging around the house.

My machine helped me to reattach a bra strap.

Fix a ripped crotch in yoga pants.

Fix two ripped pairs of scrubs.

Not much I know but enough to allow me to practice two different styles of stitches and play a little bit with some stretchy material.

I also got to put more thread on the bobbin and re-thread her a few times before the end of my mission.

I went to the unemployment today and learned I was not qualified to have retraining. Sadly I can't have my course covered. I am going to have to really work hard at finding the right information to teach myself with.

I am not discouraged tho, I know if something is meant to be it will be. I have to say this is the first thing in a long time that I have been willing to put such an effort into.

That speaks volumes to me.

I was flipping through the tv today and out of the blue I come across a show where the woman is sewing. It was the tail end of her lesson but I was lucky as there was another lesson about sewing a curved sleeve.

It was a little beyond my skill set but it was interesting to watch her work and realize once again that my new best friend will be my iron!

I went to their website and discovered a plethora of shows to watch on many different projects.

Good thing I like to learn!! I certainly have my work cut out for me!!
