'Tis a cool, rainy Friday here. We didn't want to wake up. We put the winter flannel sheets on last night, and it would have been a lovely morning to sleep in. But! He has to go to work this morning.
A nice day to bake something... And to make up my mind, about something. To get or not to get, a sewing machine.
Years ago, I had a sewing machine. And had a lot of fun, sewing simple (Jiffy) patterns, and simple gathered skirts for myself and our daughter. But I haven't had or used one, for years. Now I am getting the urge to do simple sewing again. Gathered skirts... long and in pretty cotton patterns. To wear, instead of my usual cotton pants.
I would get a beginner-type machine. Because that is all the sewing I want to do. I don't quilt or do anything fancy. Just-plain-simple-sewing. And I've looked into a simple Singer. But... But what???
But! I have a history of finding new and fun sounding interests. Liking them for a while. Then losing interest. -sigh- Which is ok, as long as I have not spent money, on the interest. I do *hate* to spend money, and then, not make use of it!!!!!!!!
So even though the simple machine I have seen, will not cost "an arm and a leg," I am still loath to jump at it.
So, perhaps, today, I should use to make up my mind. To get it and use it? Or to linger, until the interest fades? Wish me well. :-))))))))
"The goldenrod is yellow,
The corn is turning brown;
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down.
From dewy lanes at morning
The grapes' sweet odors rise;
At noon the roads all flutter
With yellow butterflies."
