I bought a sewing machine.

We stared at each another for a few days.
I read and reread the instruction booklet. I read and reread patterns. I bought material and thread and a seam ripper.
Tommy asked me when I was going to use the machine.
I told him I wasn't quite ready.
Tommy glanced at it, spent .8 seconds threading it, and began to sew.
I told him it was MINE (I learned from Judah) and that I was finally ready.
I made two skirts.
Here's one:

(the model is my lovely niece on her 2nd birthday)

I'm proud. Very, very proud.

*one of Judah's favorite things to say...

I cracked up when I read your post, because I just put my (very old, broken) sewing machine out in the alley tonight and was feeling guilty about it. Now I really do!

P.S. Congrats on coming over to IAN!
