Not much to say this evening.  It was a rough day where my lack of patience and temper got the best of me.  I decided it was best to lay low because of that.  I ended up pulling out my sewing box and working on some old cross stitch patterns that I had.  I was given a sewing machine a couple of years ago and I have never used it.  I would really like to learn how to sew more.  I haven't tried to do any sewing in a long time.  It was something that I regularly did with my aunt and grandmother.  I am probably better at it than I realize but I know I have much more to learn.  I don't think I would ever be one to make my own clothes or anything but it would still be a nice skill to have.  I also used to crochet but I haven't even touched my needle in years.  I might just have to go get some yarn to see if I can remember how to do it.  Now my thumb hurts from sewing all day.  I forgot how relaxing it could be and how wrapped up I could get in it.

The holidays bring out the best and worst in all of us. My advice, pull out that crochet needle again. You may need a distraction/escape as the first couple of holidays as newlyweds are tough.

If you want to sharpen your sewing skills, Youtube may have some good videos.

Forgot to ask, what did you sew, or start to sew?

I had some old cross stitch patterns that I worked on a bit this weekend. I will get on a kick where I work on them a lot and then I will stop so I have several half completed projects in my box.
