" I cannot count my day complete 'til needle, thread and fabric meet" - Unknown.

What happened to the weekend? No, seriously, where did it go? It was Friday afternoon and then allofasudden, I'm at work... Monday morning.... clutching my to-go coffee mug like "what the hell...?"

It was a busybusy one for sure. Sunday afternoon was my first ever sewing class (check here for upcoming classes!) I had never touched a machine before 12:30pm and now I'm shopping for them online.

I have a one-track mind when it comes to things I want *really* bad, be it a haircut, new pair of glasses or major appliance and now I have sewing machine fever. I'm not the most patient person in the world so after two hours of sewing machine exposure, I expect to be a professional, to know...possibly through osmosis/ laying my hands on the machine, to be blessed with complete knowledge. Which is ridiculous. But I do want to practice and perfect, possibly acquiring a hunchback in the process.

While I was at Sew Crafty, I picked up a new Sublime Stitching pattern. SO AWESOME. I'm pretty excited to embroider one of those Matryoshkas on a boring, solid colored V-neck shirt from Forever 21. Huzzah!
So until I am the owner of one of these bad boys, I'll continue to do things by hand and work on great little projects.
Now for some pretty embroidered inspiration!
