I have something I need to share with you. This crafting confession or “CC” as I’m calling it, is about my sewing machine. I mentioned here that my husband was and still is super awesome. He bought me a sewing machine and jewelry for my birthday. I have the beauty of a sewing machine sitting on my desk and it’s staring at me as I write this post. I’ve mentioned on Facebook and Twitter that I’m taking weekly sewing lessons. I’ve only had one lesson so far because my teacher has been in Argentina visiting family for the last two weeks.
You see, this “CC” is kind of embarrassing to admit as a crafter because this should not be happening. I feel like an awkward teenager trying to hide a mouth full of metal or a toddler who just wet herself in public. I feel ashamed and kind of scared to be judged. I also feel like laughing at myself because I know it’s silly. Ready to know what this confession is about? I’m afraid to use my sewing machine.
I know it’s completely irrational. I KNOW THIS! I’m scared to break it, like it’s some piece of heavy machinery. The first time I ever touched a sewing machine resulted in a major catastrophe. As in, I broke a sewing machine that did not belong to me. Bird’s nest of thread. Broken needle. Machine that needed to be taken to a shop. Get the picture?
I’m soooo in love with my new sewing machine that I’m scared to ruin it. Ridiculous and I need you to tell me so! There you have it, my confession. Along with my “CC”, you also get my promise that I WILL SEW TODAY. Promise. I’ll tell you all about it and our snow filled trip to Tahoe tomorrow.
Do you have a crafting confession or silly fear like me?
