I was given a sewing machine as a house-warming gift and I’ve recently begun to use it. Sewing, therefore, has become one of my new hobbies. Here I go adding yet again, to my arts and crafts repertoire (rubber-stamping, calligraphy thus far).
Surprisingly enough (or not surprising to some of you who actually sew), sewing requires a lot of engineering and organizational/process-oriented thinking. This is where Nick comes in. He helps me with the geometry side of things sometimes and even uses AutoCad on occasion to get me the template I need. It’s fun to be able to include Nick on some of my creations. We’re like a project team– he helps me brainstorm how it’s going to happen and I make it happen!
Here are some pictures of my first project: a pin cushion, because every sewer needs a cute, nice-looking pin cushion.
