I'm not a good or perhaps even competent seamstress. I took home economics all the way through high school so I've got good basics. I even own a sewing machine that has all the basic uses. It has been a few years since I've used it but my mom just used it last month! So my sewing machine should be in good shape.
I decided that I needed pillows in my porch and thought I'd better make them outdoor quality. I couldn't find any nice ones at the store so off I went to Rockland Textiles (what a wonderful place!) to find my fabric. After much touching and consideration I made my purchase and headed home to start my pillows. Cutting went well (always a sore point for me) and I quickly sewed up one pillow, stuffed it and then started on the second. I even had enough fabric to sew a cloth for the table! Everything must have been going too well because half way through pillow number 2...my machine seized! There's something wrong with the timing and I don't know what is going on. So there sits my empty pillowless chair and my fabric stuffed in a drawer until I find someone to fix it. (I fiddled a bit but couldn't fudge it to work)
