A Good Day For New Skills

My Zingarella and I have been catching up with Project Runway together.  We’re mid-way through the second season (sshhhh!  No spoilers!  We really don’t know who wins this one!)  Emma has decided that she wants to learn to sew.   She was inspired by a cute little blouse pattern:

Well look who the UPS man just now dropped off!  Emma’s new best friend Torso.

    Yea, Emma! One question: Why is she meticulously cutting out the pattern pieces on the lines before pinning to the fabric??? Are you being mean to her or something? You took home ec in Indiana, right?

    Ah, home ec. I took it until I was ridiculed for it. I shouldn’t have let it get to me, but I did. As I recall, sewing was NOT my teacher’s strong point and she didn’t have much to offer. I liked having an hour in school to sit in front of a sewing machine, though. That was awesome.

    And I have my teaching methods! Shortcuts are more meaningful if you know the hard way first! Ssshhhhhhh!!!!

    I wish our sewing machine wasn’t broken.
