Remember when I made the trip to Craft Market and picked up this?
And was so tickled that this was inside?
Well, it got me thinking about my relationship with Birgita. In fact, chapter two is titled You and Your Machine A Love Story. When I first got her, I had never used a sewing machine before. Ever. At. All. In fact when I got her, I didn’t even know what I was looking for in a machine. I always to a lot of research before I make a large purchase, but one day my mother-in-law said, “Lisa, if you keep waiting to find the perfect machine than you will never buy one.” And she was probably right. But we had a lot a bumps along the way . . . and a lot of things that just didn’t turn out.
After looking through the first couple of pages of Stitch by Stitch, I realized that I should have had this book when I first got Birgita. It would have saved me a lot of tears and frustration early on. I was hoping that by now I would have worked my way through the book, but that (like my blog) has been neglected. I hope that I can start working on that soon. In fact, I might try to give myself a challenge and dedicate a whole month to it. That way I will have to do it right? Maybe after I finish sharing all the projects that I still have on my list.
