Since we are currently living at my in laws, most of our things are in storage. Until yesterday, so was my sewing machine. I would occasionally use my mother in laws machine but I always felt bad using it all the time and she has a lot of projects that she is busy with, so I brought my case to the house and Im going to set my machine on the kitchen table anytime I want to use it.
Oh, the endless possibilities. I have a lot of ideas of things I want to make and a little bit of fabric I bought at Joann's. I start sewing and all I have is issues. My mil's sewing machine is much nicer than mine and does things easier. I have to remember how to thread, and it comes in handy-- I had to rethread it almost 15 times in a half hour. Okay, maybe just 10. It was a nightmare.
I was getting frustrated and didn't want to complete any of my projects. That, and I just didnt have enough time. Taking too much time to figure out how to use this evil contraption, I only had enough time to make 5 cup sleeves.
I dont drink coffee, and the only time I have starbucks is when my little sister brings me a Zebra Hot Cocoa to work (and its not scorching hot by then). But, I know that these reusable cuties are good for the environment, and good for those who need them. I gave one recently to a coworker for her birthday. I would use one around the house on a regualr cocoa cup.
Now all I need to do is figure out how to put things on my etsy shop. and put a widget in my sidebar. Oh, these things will probably be put on the back burner for now.
