After some time (and lots of cheating) I finally got the hang of the class and am really beginning to like it. I decided - probably very foolishly - to go and get my own sewing machine. First, let me show you what machine I'm learning to sew on. It looks something like this one:
Yup. Not exactly digital, but I was assured it works. It's also about 60 years old, and was free. I apologize ahead of time to everyone I will be gifting hand sewn projects to. I'll try my best to make sure it doesn't look like something from a 5th grade Home Ec class. Wish me luck!
