I was talking with someone the other day about talents that you have & the talents that you wished you had. Instantly, the talent I wish I had comes to mind... its been there for quite awhile...
I wish I had the talent to sew!!!!
I sit & watch Project Runway every season & am in AWE of the things they can do with a machine that spins out a little tiny thread & some material... I wanna be able to do that! I wanna be FIERCE like Christian!!! And who didnt love Santino? Laura was always a favorite of mine! And season one - Jay???? He was the BEST!
There's a new show starting tonight on Bravo too about designing & sewing... already got the DVR ready for it!!!!
I am the type of girl that has always LOVED long skirts too.. & being 5'9 - its hard to find LONG skirts for me. I think they are great in the summer with flip flops (& cool too) & great in the winter with boots & a pretty sweater - & I think, how simple would it be to be able to make just a plain a-line skirt that is long? Not simple enough I guess because I cant do it....
I see some of the projects that people make on their blogs too & my jaw drops with envy every time I see amazing curtains or dresses for little girls or even table runners... anything that is created out of a plain square of material - know that each time you post something like that, I'm totally jealous!
Yeah, give me yarn & needles & I can make some sweaters, scarves, hats, socks, purses - ANYTHING almost... but a skirt made out of cotton would be pretty dang heavy!
And the materials out there now... when I go to Hobby Lobby - the yarn is right behind the material... I always swoop in & just look at the pretty stuff & think, yep, I'd like to make something out of that... & that... & that....I really do need to invest in a real sewing machine & learn!!! And I say "real" because I do have a sewing machine... the smallest sewing machine known to man... A Shark!!! I had to get it cause it was just too cute! It even has an adorable little foot petal that I'll just pull out & say, "AAHHH - isnt that cute"... but I cant even use that thing! I think I actually broke it trying to sew up the sides of pants of Ricky's Halloween outfit... I ended up hand stitching it!
Any suggestions on learning how to sew? I WANT THIS TALENT!!!!!
What's your talent that you wish you had?
