I started sewing when I was 9 or so. I used to be very impatient and messed everything up. Then I got more patient and took my time. Then I got a cat that likes to crawl up fabric, so I've been out of practice for the past couple of years.
Your basic Singer that's about four years old.
Depends on the project. If I've invested a lot of time and money, I'll usually try to undo it and then put it away if I've got the time. If this is a critical error on something that was iffy to begin with, I follow my grandmother's advice and "pitch it across the room".
In 1980, my grandmother and I were going on a trip together. We took turns sewing, cutting, and ironing and in one afternoon made six complete outfits for me.
A cover for my couch. Then some circle skirts to embroider.
I'm Gayle. I've been in Austin since 1983. I'm divorced, childless, and work for UT.
