Domestication for Dummies

Man, I started this entry in February and then got really busy and never finished it. So much for posting once per month... it seems like the month of March just flew by!

It had been on my mind for awhile to seek out a sewing class, since the skill seems like something I'd enjoy as well as something that would be useful. Finally, I found one month "Sewing for Beginners" classes at Lake Washington Technical College that seemed perfect, since the college is really close to where I live.

I really liked the way the class was organized because we were able to complete at least one project each week. At the beginning of the class, I didn't know how to set up a sewing machine, and by the end, I'd completed a pillowcase, several reversible placemats, a heart-shaped potholder, and several other small projects. I liked it so much that I bought a beginner sewing machine and signed up for the second month of the class, where the main thing we did was a pair of pajama pants.

I hope to learn how to quilt in the future. Definitely have a long way to go before I'll be able to sew well, but at least my cat likes the results.
