I think I’m going to look into a sewing class.

I’ve had my sewing machine for years now and am able to use it for very basic things, and I kinda just use it without instruction. But I foresee a lot more DIY textiles for our home and would like to stop winging it. (Although I seem to be pretty good at just winging it.)

I can’t wait to meet Doris, Ruth and Betty Sue.
