my sewing machine and i have created our first ruffle.
this could be the beginning of a very dangerous thing.
i am seriously considering officially naming my sewing machine betsy in the hopes that every time i start to feel sorry for myself about having to learn everything by trial and [lots and lots of] error, i'll think of betsy ross having to heft the ginormous first american flag through her sewing machine, probably made of old military uniforms and other nearly-impossible-to-sew-straight things and quit my whining.
ruffles! hurrah! hopefully i'll get this done quickly and can show you what it is!
