A few months ago, I had an idea which turned into an experimental sewing project of sorts. It has been a fun and challenging journey.
Since I only know how to sew by hand, not by machine, my progress has been cathartic and enjoyable at the same time tedious and slow.
This weekend I threw in the towel. I had hit the limit with my slow pace. (Patience with myself, has never been one of my strengths.)
I ordered my first sewing machine. Yay! I was so excited.
Yesterday evening, I received my new machine! Of course, I ripped open the box, took out the instruction manual and got started right away. I was feeling hesitant and optimistic that my project could now move full speed ahead. To my surprise I was able to set up the machine and get it threaded rather quickly and easily. I felt like I was on a roll.
Today I remained optimistic and excited for my project. I also realized I have a slight learning curve ahead of me. However at the same time, I know that my new machine will help speed up my progress. I can't wait to learn more and continue on moving forward.
I love taking on new challenges to fulfill an idea. It seems like the process always entails new adventures and new skills. I hope that this project exceeds my expectations.
Have you ever had fun experimenting with a new project?
