Once upon a time there was a demon that lived in my old sewing machine.
And because of this demon, I was not able to make decent potholders no matter how much seam ripping was involved. And let’s just say the seam ripper has never got quite the workout that the potholders provided.
Which was really embarrassing…because come on they are potholders. Just like a tiny quilt block. So should not be hard or complicated. But it was and my potholders sat in the growing unfinished project pile, a victim of the sewing machine demon. For months….
Inspired by the new sewing machine, I was convinced that it had to be demons of the old one that were causing my failure. Because it certainly could not have been my sewing skills.
Which I am not going to mention here because, well, they really were stupid mistakes. Just trust me about that. And learn from me…if something is repeatedly not working correctly, ask someone for help before ditching it in the unfinished projects stack. Because after Minnesota, I came home with these….
So now that the potholder demon is gone, I can move on to other projects. Like sewing large numbers of really boring drapes. Or start the Christmas presents I swore last year while I was binding a quilt at 2am on December 24rd that I would begin in July.
Or I could always start on something more fun. Like this……
I know what I am thinking…..
