I ventured into unfamiliar territory at Inspired when it came to Susan Edmonson's class.
Our task was to create a fabric book. And it involved use of sewing machines, which intimidate me because I do not have a clue where to begin.
With thanks to my best friend, I own a sewing machine, and she as well as my 2nd mommy have demonstrated how to operate it. Because I do not use it very often, I have a tendency to forget what I just learned.
Thank goodness for patient friends who are willing to not only hold my hand throughout the class and show me the way but select and purchase the fabric for me. (I was unable to join them when they paid a visit to our local quilting shop.)
I developed a small bit of confidence and even got fancy with my sewing using a zig zag stitch on the machine and layering the fabric as shown above.
Stamping onto fabric was quite a liberating experience as well. I could have spent the entire class stamping on fabric.
This class was a 'journey' for me, a journey into unchartered waters.
And I will be amazed when the project is completed.
