I also whipped up a little cover for my new Featherweight. Now I just need to clear some shelf space for her to sit when I'm not sewing on her.
Which brings us to my word for the year. Challenge. It's not easy to see, but there is a buttonhole on this doily. I don't know if I've ever made a buttonhole before, but If I have, it would have been in Junior High Home Ec class. I won't challenge you with the math, but that was a very, very, very long time ago. I had to decide between the challenge of figuring it out and just doing it, or finding someone to do it for me. Guess what: making buttonholes is quite easy. But you all probably knew that.
I plan to challenge myself in other ways this year as well. I'm going to learn some new quilting techniques, improve my photography skills, and address some health/exercise challenges. And I won't back down from the challenge if I need to make a buttonhole!
How about you? Have you chosen a Word for 2018? Sunny
