Sewing intimidates me! I've always considered a sewing machine to be right up there with a standard transmission and organs - terrifying!! Give me a piano and I'm in control but these things with motors and foot pedals and I'm paralyzed with fear. Over the past few years, I have overcome my fear of the organ out of necessity, filling in for our ailing church organist. Four years ago I was inspired by my sister to by some fat quarters and a quilt pattern. That's as far as I got, the giddy groupings sitting in a bag gathering dust in a corner of my bedroom closet. Last year for my birthday, my husband gave me a sewing machine thinking it would keep me busy while he was deployed....that too has been gathering a bit of dust sitting in a corner of the music room. Well, he is coming home on leave next week!!! Motivation!!!So, here is my first attempt in progress. Giddy and random!! I am not showing my sister (sewing goddess extraordinare) until I have the top sewn!! There are still corner and setting triangles to be added but I am impressed to be this far!
