After graduating from school I moved across the country away from all my friends and family and everything that I knew. I began spending more time on my hobbies and began looking for new hobbies to fill my time and loneliness. i expressed an interest in sewing and in 2011 for my birthday my boyfriend bought me a sewing machine. It was pink and cute and I soon got a table and chair and set up my machine. I found myself being lost as to where to start; I had no idea what a good beginner sewing project would be and sewing quickly became frustrating. The only place to set up my machine was in my bedroom and I just did not find myself wanting to sit in there to sew. I soon lost much interest in my sewing machine.
Last year we moved to a two bedroom apartment and I set up my sewing machine in the second bedroom and told myself I was going to make a more concerted effort to learn to sew. Last year a lot of my time was taken up by my sister’s wedding (I was the MOH), so all things considering I think I have been doing pretty well in achieving my goal of sewing more.
