Sew, Write

Bernie and Me

Remember that determined post I wrote yesterday about my writing goals?

Ha ha, the joke’s on me!  I picked up my beautiful new Bernina sewing machine today and guess who didn’t get a lick of editing done?

Yeah, that would be me.  I’ll need to set some ground rules, I think.   Something like “Daily editing and writing goals must be achieved before playing with the new sewing machine.”

By the way, so you’re not confused in later posts, I’ve named her Bernie.  We’ve been hanging out all evening.  She’s helped me sew together two more baby blocks and some colorful patchwork.  My family thinks I’ve lost my marbles because I’ve been calling out things like “look at these fantastic zig-zags!” and “she has so many different feet!”   (Seriously, you should see the cool presser feet on this machine!)

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

P.S.  I promise to edit tomorrow.  Scout’s honor.  🙂
