Do you have a talent or skill set that has been dormant? You’ve discovered a new talent and have been so focused you haven’t thought about it in months or years? A new project came to mind for me to create and I needed to do a little dusting off.
Sitting in the corner of the craft nest was my sewing machine. An old friend that my mother bought for me when I was a eleven years old. Next to it was a portable sewing machine that I bought shortly after I married. Both have not been used in years. I was so inspired with my new project I picked up the portable, set it on the craft nest and opened it. I carefully cleaned it and checked the machine over. It was in great condition! Ready to go to work!
I carefully designed my patterns, something I haven’t done in a while. Just like learning the skill to ride a bike, it all came back. Before long I was sewing together a Halloween fabric pumpkin. A joy came over me while continuing to put together eight more of various sizes.
While sewing the granddaughters came in to see what I was doing. They never seen me sew and they were intrigued. They began to ask questions and wanted to learn. It was so much fun watching them feel the power of the sewing machine. Seeing the joy on their faces when they accomplished each small task. Even stuffing the pumpkins, lol! They were so inspired they were coming up with their own creative ideas. Thank goodness I have two sewing machines for them to create, if you know what I mean!
In short, it was a great dusting off day! Below are pictures of what we had created!
