Yay! I finally did it!

Remember my post (last paragraph) from way back about some goals I made for myself to foster my interest? Welp, I finally made some fun stuff using the sewing machine that I borrowed from my sister MONTHS ago! :) Yes, it also took me weeks to figure out that I didn't borrow the power chord and that I didn't have the manual. Hehe. But, nevertheless, I got it all sorted out and made some fun things! I wish I had more time for it, though - right now, I get to sew about once a week for an hour or two. BTW, if anyone has any easy projects or advice, please send them this way. Right now, I have plans to make some drawstring backpacks for the kiddies SOMETIME this year...haha! Anyhow, enjoy the pics!

Flannel/terry wipes (un-paper towels)

Pillowcases (Batman & Wall-E) - super easy!

A set of 6 flannel/terry wipes (can you tell flannel was on sale!? hehe)

Oh, and re: my other goals: I borrowed a bread machine from my MIL a while back and made lots of yummy bread (think applesauce and cinnamon, for example) but found that we had to eat it very quickly to enjoy that fresh bread taste and ended up eating WAAAY too much of it. :P (Not enough freezer space to store it all.) So, I try not to make it as much. Sigh. And most of the pics on this blog were taken with the dSLR, though still have to brush up on my f-stop, aperture skills to really make full use of our camera. But, it's been fun!

So, what have you done to foster your interests, lately? :)
