Among the many wonderful and thoughtful gifts I received this year for Christmas was a mini-Janome sewing machine. I'm not going to lie, I had mixed feelings about this gift. (I.e. a touch of excitement mixed with absolute nervousness.)
For one, I am not what you'd call a domestica diva. I never had a home-economics class in grade school. And, I'm not even sure I've ever sewn a button onto an article of clothing. Because of this, my idea of "hemming" has evolved into grabbing some safety pins and/or duct tape and going from there.
My mom (thank goodness) has taken notice.
At 26 years old, I am now prepared to dip my toes into the pool of domesticity (if that's a word...). Wish me luck.
