Learn to Sew – Maria’s List

It all started with buying a new Janome Sewing Machine and signing up for classes at Spool of Thread.  Once I started, I was on a roll.  In August 2014 I started with the Tote Bag class.  I practiced by making all of my girlfriends reversible tote bags for their birthday gifts.

Then I took the Zippered Pouch class and in August 2015 it was the first piece of clothing with the Miette Wrap Skirt.  I have successfully learned to sew and can’t wait to continue with new sewing projects in the future.


Go to a movie alone-Sharla’s List

I did it! Actually I have now done it 3 times!

While on a work trip to Australia I bit the bullet and went to a movie alone.  Surprisingly it wasn’t too weird.   Actually it was pretty fun.  So then two nights later while still in Australia I bought tickets to go to an outdoor movie theatre.  Normally I would have seen advertisements for a fun activity like that and been sad that I had nobody to go with….but I decided I could do it on my own.  So, I saw Crazy, Stupid, Love while sitting in an bean bag lounge chair in sunny Australia drinking wine and eating a cheese plate.  Way cool.

Once safely back in Canada I kept the momentum going and saw My Week with Marilyn on a random day off.  My question is…why did I wait so long to do this?
