Do you remember when Lynne(sewing teacher/mentor/friend) took me to the Quilting Guild Meeting last month? We attended a dinner they had and looked at all the projects they had going on and the "Play-things" they did like taking donated ugly fabric and turning it into something else.
After we had left my mind toyed with the idea of joining . So, I looked up the information online and saw that the dues were 55.00 and I knew that was out of my reach right now. I even thought of how Lynne would have to do all the driving and all the wear and tear on her car-so I gave up on the idea and was grateful for a fun experience.
Then last week Lynne wrote and asked if I wanted to go with her again this month? I wrote her back and said I would love to , but I was afraid I would be getting her in trouble. I mean guest status could not last for long.:)
Then last night she replied and said ,"Merry Christmas!" I was stumped. I could not imagine for who the Early Christmas would be for -since - I was the only one I know that is working on Christmas Early. So, I read on and she said -Welcome - you are the newest member of the Roanoke Valley Sewing Guild! I almost passed out! She had paid all the fees for me! !!!! I almost cried -here she has opened the door to a Major Gift to me of teaching me to sew and working with me and haveing patience with me and just for that I knew I could Never repay her-then- she turns around and includes me with this. I have a feeling that there are several of you out there to know how much you get from your "Sewing Meetings" -no matter what they are called -because it comes from the heart. She did tell me that I had to make my own sewing name tag-"Stumped Again"! :)
To recover from my shock - I thought I would start out my morning just sewing tests to see IF I can over come my "Embroidery Machine Handicape"?
Now I was all ready to TRY my luck ? But DH happened to see where I had carried his "GAME EARS" that he uses for hunting -in here in the sewing room so I could see if there was any way I could fix them for him -since he had broke them last week?
Just these few things seem to have taken most of the day. See , why I fuss about time just runs off and leaves you? I would Love to make me a new tee shirt to wear to the quilt meeting on Thursday and you know that is only a few brief seconds to me and it will be hear, ready or not? :)
Let's see, I have to check out designs? That always takes a while and then I will do a lot of :being fearful of this machine. After seeing it ruin two projects laying on the table -I am almost too scared to try again. But, I guess I have just enough stubborness to have to try one more time? :)
Well supper and chores got in the way-we will see how tomorrow goes.:::::
