Sew Good

It’s just a pillow. A chocolate colored pillow made of soft suede sitting against the back of a living room chair. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start.
Yesterday was my birthday, and Lee got me a sewing machine, storage case, and starter kit. I’ve been wanting one for a while because I think sewing might be a fun, gratifying hobby. I started with the pillow – next I’m going to work on living room curtains. I think I’ll enjoy making things for the house, but I also think I’ll have fun making things like Halloween costumes for the dog, etc. Okay, so it took me ages to figure out how to thread the needle, wind the bobbin, etc., but that will become easy with practice.
My birthday weekend has been great. I got lots of nice phone calls, and Lee always makes sure my birthday is special. Maybe I’ll sew him something, like a lopsided pair of socks (I need more practice…)
