Thirty Days of Thanksgiving | Day 24

After yesterday’s sewing victories I decided I was ready to take on a real project. I went shopping and came home with a pattern for a simple apron, adorable fabric (shown above), and some thread. This morning I got up and got my fabric washed and ironed, and studiously studied my pattern and got the pieces cut out and ready to go.

Everything was going great until I put a scrap of fabric into my sewing machine to do a quick test piece and the motor on my antique sewing machine froze. The needle won’t budge and the motor has the smell of really unhappy electronics. I was incredibly disappointed. On top of that, I couldn’t find a repair shop that was open on Sunday so I’ll have to deal with that this week. I hope it can be fixed….and I really hope its not too expensive.

If all else fails i’ll take my adorable fabric and pattern up to my grandma’s house at Christmas. I’m sure she’ll help me finish it! It’ll become an apron eventually!

Today I am thankful for:

  • A long phone call, catching up with a close friend
  • An AMAZING dinner – Chicken Involtini with prosciutto, fresh herbs, and parmesan with a side of roasted veggies
  • Delicious almond-apricot biscotti cooling on the counter, ready and waiting to go with tomorrow morning’s coffee

What are you thankful for today?
