One thing that I have always wanted to do was sew. It was in the same category as playing the guitar. It's things like that, I sometimes think that my time has passed to learn and I'm just going to be the girl that can't sew. Well that's until my little one needed her "nigh-nie" fixed. It's her little blankie that she chews on the corner to go to sleep. How can you explain to Lucy that her mom's creativity only goes so far? So, in the name of my love for Lulu, I got out the machine, LITERALLY wiped the dust off and looked up on the internet how to thread and wind a bobbin. I broke countless needles, had a foot come undone, etc. Those little problems actually made me figure out my machine a little better. I told Ivy that I should name her so I could talk to it kindly and she suggested the name "Emie". So I called her Emie and would rubbed her little back when I thought a problem was arising.
