I have spent the day sewing, mending, and making business cards. Most of the day was spent on the cards. I had an interesting plan but it didn't pan out. Took up most of the day and all I did was empty my print cartridge. I still need cards for the art show next month. Oh well I will save that for another day.
I have put off sewing and mending for a long long long time. I used to make all my clothes. I loved to sew. I worked a full time job, made dinner, cleaned up and around 10 pm would start to sew. Sometimes till 1 am.
The bank where I worked had some competition. Quite a few people would have a new outfit every Friday. I admit I did try to keep up for awhile. But I made all mine and that got way too time consuming.
At this time of my life, I don't like sewing much any more. I spend as much time taking stitches out as putting them in. And that is very time consuming. Especially as I have to have a very bright light and glasses. I have a fairly new computerized sewing machine I don't like. I had more fun sewing with the first sewing machine I ever had. I put it on layaway at Thrifty Drug store. I used that machine much more than I will ever use the one I have now.
This one like most of the ones I have had in the last 10 yrs or so are too finicky. The computerized ones start buzzing and showing an error if you run over a little bit of thickness. I really liked the old metal ones. You could sew over straight pins with those. I don't know what you are supposed to do if you need to repair something that is more than 2 thicknesses.
