That right folks, I am about to expand my homemaking repertoire to include “seamstress”! Don’t get too excited, sometimes I have great ideas, then I see something shiny and the moment’s over. I truly hope that’s not the case, though, because I’m tired of asking Kelli to sew things for me. And it was embarrassing to pay $13 to have a button sewn on my pants once I found out how easy it is. No button will be safe now!
I have rebelled against this skill for quite some time now (28 years, to be precise), and it still makes me nervous. Mostly because crafty-type things just make me nervous. They seem to require such precision, which is not my strong suit. Hence my distaste for baking. But since mom is here with me, and can’t get out and do much, I intend to make use of her. She is going to teach me! I hope this isn’t like when she taught me piano lessons in 2nd grade. I guess the odds of me throwing a temper tantrum until she lets me go swimming with the other kids are probably slim. I like to think I’ve grown as a person since then.
