I realise that I haven’t posted much about how my learning to sew using NGL is going.
I suppose this is for a few reasons. The first being guilt. Though I have joined a little online sewing club, and watched copious videos on YouTube, I still feel a little out of my depth.
She’s so lovely! She talks so sweetly, she’s so calm, controlled, and happy. I tried to follow along and after much yelling, cursing and a bit of blood, finally managed to thread my machine.
I have to re-watch this video each time I want to re-thread my machine. Each time, I go through the same painful process.
I’m not a practical person. Anything practical takes sooooo long for me to master, actually, I have never mastered anything practical. I am my father’s daughter. I could read a book about sewing super fast and remember every page, but ask me to do what that book suggests, is another thing altogether.
But one thing I have learnt, is that it’s not about the end goal, but the process which ensues.
I have also changed my goal to something more attainable.
Here is what I’m making at the moment…
I like this girl better, she’s a little more real and explains everything a little more interestingly! I also like the fact this skirt only takes five minutes. I’m engaged!
Will show some photos tomorrow.
