My new purchase


I’ve been wanting a sewing machine for a while now but a great deal came along at Overstock on Black Friday so I got a Christmas present early!  I’m not going to have much time to mess with it until after Christmas but I’m excited.  I want to be more self-sufficient.  I want to be able to take cute vintage fabric and make simple skirts and drapes out of them.  I want to use it in my quest to recycle more.  I want to cut down on the "processing" of the clothes I buy.  The less ingredients and processes that are done to my outfits, the more I can control what I buy.  I may not be able to be completely sure that children in some distant country didn’t make some part of my outfit but I can cut down on it by simplifying things.
