A couple of years ago I was lucky to get a fancy new sewing machine. In the last couple of weeks I sat down and actually tried to learn how to use it! Most of my day-to-day sewing didn’t require any special knowledge. But I’ve been looking at all those stitches it could make and have never used. I had this bit of canvas I’d been using to playing around with painting stripes. Fairly uninteresting. So I picked a stitch and used it to create a little dialog with the stripes. Now I really want to know what all those stitches look like.
