When I got my first sewing machine for my 30th birthday I was completely out of my comfort zone. The last time I had used a machine was as a teenager customising my old jeans and turning them into skirts (it was the late 90’s OK). So it was a massive learning curve. But I started reading sewing blogs and buying up all the fabrics and I started pushing myself.
I think some of my greatest ‘Yes moments’ of late have been sewing related (but some of my most sweary moments have been through sewing too).
I am sure Jim thinks I am absolutely crazy when I cheer about achievements – lined, zipper, handbags that take every single bit of my concentration, tops that I can actually wear and working zip enclosures. But they are all little ‘Yes moments’ that make me so so happy.
