Look Out Martha Stewart

For Christmas, I asked for a sewing machine. I've always wanted to learn how to sew...even though I have zero patience. Luckily, my husband knows his way around a sewing machine after watching his mom sew for years and years. He's a great help!

Today I started on my first project...making new pillow covers for the pillows on our couches. I have to say I'm quite pleased with the result. It's not perfect but it's quite good and definitely cheaper than buying 7 new pillows from a store (I will never understand why a single pillow costs $20 or more).

One down, six to go!
