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.
