A Secret....Shhhh

You all know by now that I like and am fairly good at lots of different types of crafts. Here's something I bet you didn't know. I can't sew, not a stitch with a machine anyway. Every time I try I get gummed up thread on the back, uneven lines, it always looks like a kindergartner did it. Actually I think a kindergartner could probably do a better job! I suck, plain and simple. :)

Today I attended a seminar over at Lay out a Day called Get Your Stitch On. The theme was all about sewing on paper and I thought that would be so cool if I could learn to at least do that. Great information, fun class with fun people. Aftewardr I pulled out the sewing machine and a project and gave it a whirl. Guess what!!!! I still suck LOL, couldn't do it. I tried all the tips she gave and still it looked like doo doo. So what was my answer? BUY RIBBON THAT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS SEWN! He he he... I knew I'd find a way around it.

With that in mind, I am finishing the project and will have it ready for you to see later today or tomorrow at the latest. The project is even a charitable one so I'm glad I could make it work.

Til then...

Love ya,
