Four New Stockings!
Yeah! They are done. I figured out why I don't sew as much as I knit or spin. First of all there is all that ironing. I HATE to iron. In fact that was one of the things I told hubby when we first got married. I don't iron. LOL! There is equipment to deal with. The sewing machine has to be on a table. Not like knitting or spinning which I can do out in the Great Room with the rest of the family. I also had issues with the sewing machine and all the bottom thread kept bunching up and I had to rip it out and do it again. It didn't work and I tried 2 more times and ended up changing thread before it would work right. There is all that pinning. You spend more time cutting and pinning then you actually spend sewing.
I need to plan to do at least one project a month sewing though. I have a bin full of fabric that is future clothing for the family.
