My very first sewing day Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

I did it !!! I did it!!!

I had my very first sewing lesson and I soooooooooooo loved it !!!!!

Before I went to the store they told me to bring all I would need for the sewing class and I did LOL

I got my new sewing box this week and put all the stuff I could need in it.

Way to much, but I didnt knew what I could need.

I have 2 teachers and they are so nice and helpful. We are 6 women in this class and I’m the only one without sewing knowledge.

2 of the women were nearly pros, who only needed some advise. They made dresses. WOW.

Not the style I would wear, but the dresses looked like the ones you can buy in a store. Just amazing. I have to learn so much to come even close this class.

I have so many fabrics, but I didnt wanted to use it as test piece. I knew as a newbie I only could sew simple things.I decided to make an underlay for my sewing maschine 🙂

The maschine is white, the sewing table is white <—– boooooring

So I went to the store last week and bought fabric ( with stripes LOL ) and Vilene to make it look more thicker. I even bought a bottle of socks stop to prevent the maschine from gliding when on the fabric. Now I know the socks stop has been a stupid idea because the maschine is much to heavy hehe

Before I started this course I searched the internet a lot for DIY sites. A lot of them made their own logo on their selfmade things.

I wanted this too even its only for myself. I wont sell anything I make. Maybe a give it away for family and friends. But sewing will be just for fun. So I ordered my “own” logo hehehe

Here are the picures of what I made yesterday. It isnt perfekt, but Its my very first and I love it 🙂

The first picture shows that I have to sew with hand a little at the site. Its where I turned the underlay inside out. And next time I should turn the compass too. I have to admit, that this little compass made the most problem because its so small. As you can see the seam is crooked. Next time I will ironing this logo first.

After my first sewing day you can count me as a new member to all the sewing fans around the world. YEAH

Photos of a beautiful fall

After a very long time we decided to search geocaches again and looking for lost places. It has been months since the last cache.

Whats there to say? We choosed the worst weather to look for caches: rain, lightnings, thunder. We only found one cache, but  also a nice lost place. We couldnt explore the place because of the rain. The terrain has been to slippery.

So we went to a park and made a few photos

Back at home we both were nearly soaked to the skin, were hungry, tired, but had a lot of fun 🙂

As a reward for what we went through LOL we watched Doctor Who yeahhhhhh

My sewing class will start …. Finally

Guess what !!!!

I called the fabric store the day before yesterday and asked for my course to start.

Unfortunality all members from the former course registered for the next one too. So there hasnt been a place for me anymore. But the store offered me an alternative: 3 hours on saturday. This week I dont have time for it, but I payed for the next 5 saturdays, starting on september, 27th and all saturdays in October.

If I like it, and I’m sure I will, I will go on in November with the next saturdays too. Now as a “member” I will have priority too.

Maybe saturday isnt even a bad choice for me, because some days I work to long and wont even make it right in time to the sewing course.

Saturday is my day off, or most times, so I can sleep late and  start fresh with my lessons. Everyone knows your focus is better when rested.

I’m so excited !!!! I have so many ideas what to sew. Most of it are for advanced levels, but I dont care. I will start slow till I’m good enough to realize my ideas.

This week I have been on a photo trade show. I wrote, one of my hobbies is photography. Here a few new photos I made this week

Still waiting for the sewing course to start ……

its been september and I didnt got the phone call for my sewing course so far 😦

when I went to the fabric store weeks ago they told me I will be on the next course in september. I was so excited to start with my sewing lessons.

I will go  to this store again this week and ask what happend. Why they didnt called me.

My shelf isnt ready either. In “About me” I wrote, that my free time is very limited. This is the reason I couldnt work on my shelf every day. After 10 to 12 hours a day at work I dont have enough energy to work on my shelf. And some days I have been lazy hehe.

Lets say it, I thought it would be going much faster to make this shelf. I believe I make every mistake with this wood working you can do. This is also one of the reasons I’m not finished yet. I want to make it as perfect as can be. Its unbelievable how often I had to start from the beginning because I didnt liked how I worked. I didnt changed my idea or the plan to make this shelf, but when one door is nearly done, I see something I dont like. Maybe no one but me would see it isnt perfect, but this is way too many LOL

Here a few pictures I made last week. Fall isnt really my season – I love the summer – but the colors are beautyful

Maybe in my next post I can write about my first sewing lesson.

Lets hope ..
