After many months of obsessing over which embroidery machine to buy, I settled on a Janome from a mom and pop store in Fargo. They mailed it to me.
I set it up. My first project would be a sweatshirt for J. I put a corn cob in his armpit.
My next project I sewed a butterfly on a shirt for Natalie.
It was sewn together. She couldn' t even get it on.
At this same time, my sister moved into her new house. I was helping her move when I suddenly felt ill. I went into her basement, turned on the T.V. , and laid down on the couch.
There on the screen was a special Sewing with Nancy. Embroidery 101.
I begged my sister for a video tape.
