sew mama sew

Okay, so I have been wanting to buy a sewing machine for quite a while now. However, I was hesitant on making such a huge purchase before I knew if I could even figure out this sewing thing. So, my wonderful mother has generously given me her sewing machine, accessories, and all of her fabric so that I can learn before I buy. Needless to say, I am in love with sewing. I may not be awesome at it yet, but sewing really is fun. I have already made two pairs of baby booties for Spenser! It may have taken me a while to make the first pair, like four hours, but they turned out really cute. Spenser even wore them to church on Sunday and no one asked me if he was wearing shoes that his ten year old cousin made! Oh and the only time I can really sew is during nap time for Spenser and quiet time for Chloe. So for about two hours a day I am in a wonderful sew happy dream. For those that have known me, well, known me for even ten minutes might be wondering why I would ever want to sew anything! It's simple really....I see all of these cute "hand-made" items and think to myself, "hey, I can make that." So, four to five hours later (sometimes only one or two), I accomplish what some person wanted to charge me thirty dollars for.
