Heart, Soul, and Rough Edges — A Gypsy Journey of Words and Wonder

Make Visible: A New Addition

My creativity extends beyond poetry to crafts.  I just got a “new addition” to my creative arsenal, a sewing machine!  It’s not really new, in fact it’s a 40-year-old Kenmore, all metal construction.  I haven’t sewn since I was 13.  I’ve already done a bunch of straight stitches and figured out how to stitch in the opposite direction.  I haven’t filled a bobbin yet or threaded the top and bottom of the sewing machine.  I plan to do crafts to start with, like aprons and potholders.  Here’s to my new hobby, sewing!  Below:  the Kenmore, a book to help me, and some fabric to start with.

    Thanks, Peggy! I know, so much fabric, so little time… 🙂

  3. I envy crafty people. So many cute projects out there. When I took Home Ec in Junior High, I couldn’t sew a straight line if my life depended on it…
