I'm a little preoccupied!
Not only is it the last week of our first six weeks, but it is also my planning week for the next six weeks. I feel a little crazy right now. And the first trimester is going out with a bang! Worst week of morning sickness so far! I have cried a lot over what to eat. Nothing sounds good. 24/7 sickness! One more week and I will be in the 2nd trimester. That is nuts to me! When I am in the midst of planning, I usually go into a hole and cut myself off from the world. I have to. Add morning sickness to that and I lose all people skills! Trust me, this is when you don't want to talk to me.
In the midst of it all, Jeremy surprised me with the purchase of a sewing machine! I've begged for two things over the last several years. A Nikon camera (the $800 one) and a sewing machine! He went with the cheaper of the two. I am sooooooo excited!!! Tonight I learned how to thread it and all that other fancy stuff. This thing is amazing! It pretty much does all the work itself. I am a newbie, but thanks to the internet (pinterest is full of tutorials) and Minnie (my friend in Dallas who happens to be a sewing goddess), I made two burp cloths tonight for a baby gift. Need to make a couple more and gift complete! They are not perfect, but I will keep practicing!
Looking forward to a weekend of sewing!!!
Jeremy threaded the bobbin, etc., for me the first time. I decided I was going to stay up late until I could do it myself. I read the manual and got it!! Minnie, I know you are proud based on all the dumb questions I asked earlier! And it wasn't hard once I figured it out! To me, THAT is the hardest part of sewing!
It's 1:15 AM. Must sleep!!
