Like a kid in a candy store.

I am SO excited.

I’ve been sewing.

I love it.

Here is my sewing update for the year:

Beginning sewing (4 sessions): I made a pillowcase, a tote bag, and a drawstring bag.

Followup: I made another tote bag at home.

Zippered cosmetic bag class (one session): I made a lined cosmetic bag with a zipper.

Followup: I made two more at home. One was a modification included on the original pattern. I also finished up the sample coin purse that we made in class.

Big Bag Class (2 sessions): I am making a giant bag. First thing I have ever made that will remotely resemble a purse! 2nd class is this coming Monday.

Spring Tote Class (one long session): This is a 6-hour class that I am taking today. It’s a tote bag again, but with more oomph.

I am having so much fun finally creating tangible things. I am loving the focus and concentration involved. When I sit down in front of my sewing machine, the day flies by. I lose hours. I don’t worry. I sometimes work until I am a little too hungry because I have been so focused.

I am taking all of my classes at Sew You Can, and so far they have all been taught by Bia. She creates AWESOME and easy-to-understand patterns.

I know I have been silent for a long time, but I HAVE been working on my focus! πŸ™‚
