Today I am grateful for spoiling myself!
Yes, I spoiled myself today…
Did something badass!
My last sewing machine was purchased in 1986.
Yes, it still works, but it doesn’t do everything I want to do…
So I took the plunge today.
I bought a new machine.
A Cadillac of machines.
Not only one for me, but also a buy-one-get- one deal that will make a dear one very happy! I can’t wait to gift it!
I am ecstatic — over the moon!
I learned to sew on my grandmother’s treadle singer sewing machine making aprons. Later, she helped me sew 4-H projects, clothing, and I helped her sew quilts. I cherish the memories.
I have always loved the process of creating, cutting, color, picking patterns and fabrics, quilting,
tearing things apart and putting them back together.
When I cannot find what I want in a store, I just make it —
like my red wedding dress!
I love to sew, unless I have a deadline…
I have always thought of everyone else first. Their needs and wants before mine.
But not today.
I spoiled myself
and I am glad!
Excuse me, I need to go play!
XO Lisa ❤️
