    I see everyone with cute Sewing Machine Covers... I want one.. well I want 3... LOL!... I wish I could make one.. OMG! I bet I could make one..

    What I am looking at... hmmm someting.. kinda LOL! "crunchy" maybe some plastic canvas or craft foam.. cover it in fabric...

    I want something that I can cover the whole machine... not the little ties on the side AHA!!! Think of Gramma's Toaster you know big and just cover it...

    While I am whining.... I want a kitchen aid mixer cover to cover Sebastian... he is sexy as hell and I hate that he gets dusty... You know it really is a pain to be a Quilter and not a Seamstress or someone who sews... My mom can recreate what you are wearing but cannot make a quilt to save her life...

    and I alas cannot make clothes... But I can make a mean quilt... LOL

    Thanks for listening...

    I WANT a Sewing MOMMY!!! Where or where are the cool moms/grammas in Houston...

    SAVE ME FAIRY GODMOM SEWER!!!

    You can adapt it to fit Sebastian, just momentarily pretend he's a sewing machine and measure as per the pattern.

    Then all your beauties will be covered...you will be a happy quilter and you can post pics and we will tell you how clever you are!

    Ok I am discouraged and really upset.... :"(

    I measured.... ok that was off.. so I did a actual measure up... overcame that..

    i embroidered the design on.. ok the design was flawed and it moved... ok overcame that.... ugh.. I think I put the piping on wrong.. I just balled it up and bawled LOL!..

    I am sticking to quilts...
    :( WAHHHHHH

    now, now, now how was your first quilting experience?, perserverence will make it work. Work on your quilts and then go back and do one step at a time and stop, push it aside for a few more and suddenly wala all done and accomplished! I started sewing in high school and can still hear my teacher telling me to "get the pins out of your mouth"! yep heard her yesterday! You'll get there

    It is a quilt (of sorts...). Now don't let Boris et al down by quitting! Hang in there and remember tomorrow is another day.
