I WANT MY SERGER BACK!!!!!!
Okay, it's been two weeks...Yes, 2 WEEKS since I have been able to sew anything and I am going NUTS!!! Even Ole commented and said "You need Sergio back!" I knew I was going to miss him, but I didn't realize how difficult it was going to be. I keep having all these ideas and I want to create them and then I go to my sewing studio and see that empty spot and my heart just sinks. I can tell you...as soon as I get the call I am going to get him!!!! Cross you fingers that "that call" comes in soon!
Yes, I know...I could sew. But I am such a perfectionist when it comes to my creations that the thought of my seams not being perfect drives me crazy. Which brings me to a funny story that I should share with you.
The other day when I took Abby for her meet & greet at school there were a lot of mamas "oooohing and aaaahing" over her dress. One teacher, who I have never even met made the comment "Oh, you are the mom that makes all the gorgeous clothes!"( evidently the word is out ) I just smiled and said "thank you". Then one mom actually came up and started inspecting Abby's dress looking at my seams and peeking underneath to see how my finishing was...I guess, and her comment was "This looks too good to be Homemade!" and then the killer was "Oh, I so wish I was crafty!" What the heck is that? First off, I really wish people would stop thinking that anything handmade has to look frumpy and secondly I have to say...In no way do I think of my designing as "a craft project". Of course, I know she didn't mean any harm by it and I was basically amused by her statement. I just amazes me what people say sometimes.
