When her husband expressed an interest in sewing his own costumes (they are big into Japanese Anime and cosplaying), she found one and bought it for him for Christmas. I love how easy they have been to maintain (knock on wood.)
I've recently been making new covers for the cushions in the Compact II I bought and made a trial roman shade in preparation for replacing the curtains in my Bigfoot.
I love the feeling of accomplishment.
Lora, there's a lot to be said for taking something and making it better with your own two hands. I love the feeling of accomplishment too!
