1. Completing my first “on my own machine” sewing project. Yay for success!
2. Experiencing fond memories of time spent with my mom when I was a kid, the two of us cutting patterns and sewing together. As I told some of my friends, “I never would have been able to complete todays project without years of my mom’s tutelage when I was a child. Parents, never underestimate your influence – you just never know what lessons you teach (overtly or subtly) will crop up in your child’s lives days, weeks, or decades later. Thanks for teaching me so many cool things Mom – I love you.”
3. Knowing I can now make future fabric-related projects (or repairs). I love feeling self-sufficient!
