What is your history with sewing?

As said before, I've been sewing for about two years. I've completed a few patterns on and off. The uncompleted projects tend to outweigh the completed projects. I love sewing and I just regained a space to do it. As of late, I am trying to indulge myself with the hobby as much as possible.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Brother CS-6000i Computer. It can quilt and sew. I mostly sew but I would like to start quilting at some point in the future. It came with a number of feet, and I've yet to use them all. I can't wait to do so.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

I usually undo the seam if possible. Or I cut a new piece from the excess fabric. If it is really complicated, I go to Youtube. If that still doesn't work, then that's where I'm hoping you guys come in. I usually try to find an experienced seamstress to help me out. I haven't had such luck as of yet.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

I recently sewed a decorative pillow for my sister. I liked it so much, that I'm currently working on creating two smaller ones for her. Sure, I don't mind sharing photos. Just show me where to attach them.

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

A dress for myself and a couple of dress for my toddler niece. Then I would start on a wardrobe for my fiance. Then I would probably start and complete the decorative pillows for my mother.

Introduction

Hi! I'm still somewhat new to sewing. I've had my sewing machine a little over 2 years. I've done a few patterns in that time, but I still have lots to learn. I need some experienced seamstresses to help when I run into a problem.
