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.

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?
