i want a sewing machine for christmas.
i also want to be the creative woman that fills her house with wonderful homemade creations. you know who i'm talking about...the adorable blog you find and immediately bookmark, stalk and hope someday you can copy. not that i think that's going to be me. but i'd love to find the creative niche that i think might be somewhere.
so, i'm asking for a sewing machine for christmas.
i used to sew. i took home ec for waaaay too many years. i also sewed for 4-H in high school (i'm starting to sound really cool, aren't i?)
my mom is amazing at sewing. she always had a spot in our basement for her sewing stuff. she made all of our easter, christmas, halloween, and any other random outfits. seriously, every professional picture we had taken until i was like 10 we're wearing awesome dresses (or suits, in my brother's case) that mom created. check them out:
now i'm not saying that i can do what my mom did...but i would love to make cute little outfits for my someday kiddos. or at least be able to fix things. or maybe sew curtains...sigh...we'll see. in the meantime, i'll stick to knitting. and scrapbooking my wedding photos someday.
here's hoping i get that sewing machine! :)
