Believe it or not! I brought my sewing machine in the house and cleaned it up! It has been in the garage for three years now. I'm so proud of my old baby; it still works.... light and all! I broke a needle when I first got started sewing, but thankfully, had some spares. Below, I am getting started on my project. A new Bible cover. I am still using the same Scofield Bible my parents gave me when I was a senior in high school. I have often thought of switching to a new one, as my cover is worn, but I have so many notes and memories in this one, I can't bear to stop using it.
The dogs surprised me when I started sewing. I thought they would bark and go crazy at the hum of the machine. But look at Butterbean! I brought his blanket in the kitchen and he went right to sleep.
Sweet Pea found herself a spot on the vent behind me. They were both so good. I was careful not to drop any pins, as I knew what would happen if I did. It was almost like sewing with my children in the house again.
Okay, here's my new Bible cover. I'm very rusty and the binding isn't sewn very smoothly, but I'm excited that I actually sewed something today!
I will post a picture of the beautiful bookmark you see hanging from my Bible later. It was a gift from a blogging buddy. I want you all to see it!
