look what i can do!

It might not look like much to you, but today, I accomplished something.

I sewed.

These cute garlands will help decorate our church basement for an upcoming girls' day, and they'll probably find a spot at my birthday party as well.

I sewed.

I can hardly believe it.

Trust me when I tell you, this is big.

And perhaps bigger things are coming...

After my ankle recovers from restraining my lead foot-- a sewing machine needle can move quite fast. Who knew?

Woo Hoo!!!! I (more than any other) am sew proud of you! I got fabric out today and am planning to make two new pillows! Look what moe and doe are learning!
p.s. Could this be in a small way experiencing the "simple life" ?
