Pinterest, Sewing and Other Fun Things

Saturday, August 27, 2011

When I was a kid, I loved sewing by hand, but eventually I stopped. When I was older, we got a sewing machine and I loved that too, before my mom decided it needed to live in the basement, out of the way. A few weeks ago, maybe a month, I decided I wanted to get back into sewing.

A couple weeks later, my best friend sent me a link to a "pin" on Pinterest. She, along with the rest of my friends, loves coming up with ideas for my wedding. It's the little girl in us all coming out again. Every little girl plans her wedding. The first girl to get engaged in any group of friends gets a lot of help planning her wedding. So she sent me a link to some wedding invitations. I explored Pinterest and fell in love. I started by looking at wedding ideas, photos and DIY tutorials for weddings and parties. Then I realized that people were posting home ideas. Everyone knows that I'm really big into things like that. I'm a furniture junkie with a love of buildings, and a love of colors. A few days after I started pinning like a mad fiend, I discovered a lot of people were posting..... wait for it...... SEWING THINGS! Patterns, tips, ideas, product reviews on sewing machines. places to buy cheap fabric.


I really need a sewing machine, but in the mean time, Jeffrey's grandma is letting me use hers whenever I want. I've already got a few simple projects I want to try, and some complex ones that I want to try but that need to wait until my skill level increases.

And I've got a new favorite website that provides me with a never-ending supply of ideas for sewing projects, and home ideas. And wedding ideas. And a lot of other things (recipies! <3 ). I'm happy.

It's easy to understand why anyone is so hell-bent on self-destruction. It turned out we lived seven minutes apart by train, and have fostered many things to do to keep your man. They aren't special alone but together, they are truly amazing.
