I am really itching for that sewing machine
Between Michelle's blog and the finishing blog I have on my favorites list, I am jonesing for a sewing machine. Like I used to jones for a Coke. I know I need the thing. It's not a matter of it being a want versus a need. I could finish my stitching, sew my clothes, fix SO's work pants (I am not Martha Stewart but I am pretty sure that sewing his belt loops back on with DMC floss and a size 28 petite needle is not a viable long-term solution to the problem. However, and I have to applaud him for this, he is always very grateful for my less than mediocre hand-sewing skills.) Sears has one on sale for $99. It has 54 functions and a needle threader. Not that I ever found threading the needle to be the most difficult part of sewing (making sure the pattern on the fabric flows right is way harder), and 54 functions, whew, I could be a seamstress. Though I do have to note, and not with glee, the listing does not mention what those 54 functions are, and I probably don't know why I would need 53 of them. And just think, while SO is out mowing the lawn, I can be in my little sewing room, making loungepants out of Repro Depot fabrics. I am now trying to decide if I should charge one on my Sears card and just pay on it a little longer, or if I should hold off and just pay cash for it. Hmmmmmm . . .
