I own a sewing machine... AND........

I have a bit of a confession........ I own a sewing machine AND a serger/overlocker,,,, and guess what!!!!!!!!??????!!!!!!!

I can basically only sew a straight line and as for the overlocker... OMG!! I haven't even taken it out of the box yet :O

SO, why do I have them??? Well I guess its a little bit of a quest to be a good mother and make things, a lot to do with the desire to be creative and make some really lovely things, and a little bit entrepreneurial, making some things to sell......

There really are a few things standing in my way though....
** TIME would have to be the biggest one, I mean between my mother/wife/housework activities, not to mention cyber addiction where the heck will I find the time to sew??!!!!

** Lack of knowledge.... Like so many things I have floating around in this overactive brain of mine, I have so many things I would like to do, but absolutely no knowledge in how to do them!!! Although I must say, I plan to self teach myself alot, its a real shame that most of the sewing classes I can find (and there aren't many around here) are during the day... I can't go to those because I have nobody to watch the kids... hhhhmmmmm

** Enthusiastic Children :)... Yep you guessed it, if I ever do find the time you can be sure the kids would like to help me.... and when they are asleep at night, I am way too tired to be dragging out a sewing machine!!!

But regardless of ALL of this.... I DO intend to become a sewing extraordinaire and make beautiful things, clothing and crafty... I found a course running at a local college next year, so I am going to call tomorrow and see if it runs evenings. It's actually in fashion design so I may become a sewing expert yet ;)

I understand this completely!! My mom gave me hers when she upgraded to the fancy kind that has a computer. And have I sewed? No, not since 7th grade, when I made her a duffle bag in home-ec. I'm a disgrace to our kind.
