While I'm sticking to my guns about only having one resolution for 2011, there are a few things that, though not necessities, would be really nice to accomplish this year.
One of those for me is learning to sew.
It's time I did something about this and actually learned to sew myself.
So... for Christmas, my sweet husband gave me a sewing machine!
(He also drew this picture.)
Apparently, some folks name their sewing machine. I haven't named mine yet, but I'd love suggestions! (Just leave comments at the end of this post.)
I'm still getting my sewing nook together, so once that space is set up, I'll begin on my first project. Not sure exactly what that'll be yet, but I know it'll be super simple! I'll keep ya posted.
And speaking of sewing projects and people with mad skills, check out this apron that my cousin, Mackie, made me for Christmas!
(And, ahem, notice the owls.)
Told ya you'd be jealous!
Hopefully soon I'll be making pretty things like this!
