When you look at this picture, you would immediately think, "oh, she can sew".
It all looks so impressive...the machine, fabric in hand, scissors and glasses in place.
But no, she could not even get the sewing machine to sew the simple seam.
Thankfully, my dear, skilled seamstress sister-in-law did the project perfectly for us.
We put the sewing machine back in the closet, knowing full well that we were only "seamstress wannabes"...
Oh, but wait, I found this picture this morning that my mother had given me, and as soon as I saw this dress, I had to smile.
I remember clearly when I did sit down to my mother's sewing machine 40some years ago, and I made the dress I have on. My husband and I were going to a dinner and I wanted something new to wear. I remembered my home ec classes and I knew I could make a dress.
What was I thinking?
I guess we were so much in love, that my husband would not have noticed the sewing job I did.
So it is with life, things are not as they appear.
With blogging, I try to keep my posts real.
I want to share the real, and yet to share only the uplifting and positive happenings. There is enough of the negative bombarding us on a daily basis.
A little something from my heart today.
Thanks for stopping.
(I wish I would have saved that dress and scarf, in case you wanted to borrow it for your special occasions:)
