FIRST BLOG POST!!!

Woohoo! Hello blogging world! *waves* This is my first blog post ever!

I’ve been meaning to start a blog for some time now, particularly for my crafting. What made me finally decide to do so was the decision to dress as Christine Daae from Phantom of the Opera for Halloween this year (really, it’s just an excuse to make things I want to wear – I don’t usually get to go anywhere for the holiday, but I wear costumes whenever I feel like it). This means that I must suck it up and stop being terrified of my sewing machine. Really, you’re going to laugh when I show you my cute little sewing machine my dad gave me. There’s absolutely nothing scary about it!

…Other than the fact that it’s a machine, and I am notoriously afraid of machines. I don’t drive, and the only reason I get along okay with blenders and juicers is because they give me tasty nutritious foodstuffs.

Well, alright… I get along just fine with sewing machine once they’re set up. It’s the whole bobbin-making and threading and tension-setting that terrifies me…

Anyways, Halloween is approaching quickly, which means I absolutely have to make friends with my machine. This is a good thing, as it means I’ll already be on a roll when I finish this costume, then I can get working on finishing all the dresses and skirts I’ve been sewing by hand for way too long (then, since one skirt can take a month of hand sewing, I get distracted and lose interest, so I have a lot of unfinished projects).

 

Bear with me, this site will be under constant construction until I get the hang of this blogging thing down…
