Home Ec!

I am stuck in that Mommy rut! Moms, you know what I am talking about. The rut where you feel like all you ever do is cook, clean, laundry, take care of a little persons bodily fluids. Yup. That rut.

So when Gussy mentioned an online sewing class called Home Ec, I was all over it. I have had a sewing machine for several years and much to Johns dismay, I have only used it a few times.

So I immediately signed up for the class. Here is the link to the information -->HERE<--. You can still sign up through Sunday, and the class will be live online for a whole year!!! That means you can do it at your own pace. At the end, you should be able to make a duvet cover!!!! I am so excited to get started. Just last night i watched a tutorial on how to use your sewing machine, and I realized I have been threading my machine wrong (duh)!

Today, for motivation, I went out (with coupons) and got some fabric to motivate me to be really excited about the class!

Here are some of the larger pieces of fabric

And then the smaller, 18x21 pieces I got..

Ooooooo...love the fabrics! Don't you want to make the Tracy's a new duvet cover since Nicole desperately wants one? Haha, kidding.
Good luck with your projects. If I had a sewing machine I would consider joining. What great Christmas gifts you can make!

Sounds like tons of fun Amy! Let me know how it goes! I need to start using my machine more too!

What fun! I just finished a king sized duvet cover that I made the pattern for...so I need some time off from my sewing machine. But I was looking at the website and it looks like a great mix of projects if you're not that used to your own machine and don't have a ton of experience sewing! I hope you love it and become attached to your machine. It can help with the mommy rut from time to time!
