Daily Prompt: Practice Makes Perfect?
by michelle w. on September 22, 2013
Tell us about a talent you’d love to have… but don’t.
A talent I would love to have is to sew, knit, crochet, etc… In general, to be able to make things. I can cross-stitch a simple pattern and love to embroidery, but to really sew; no talent there.
My ex-mother-in-law could make anything. She could go shopping and look at things she liked, go home, make a pattern, then proceed to make the piece of clothing, etc… She did a lot of quilting and was beginning to teach me to cut patterns and piece them together, but I never did learn to put on the backing.
My mom and both of my grandmother’s sewed a little; none of them were great sewer’s, but the gene just totally skipped me. Instead, I got the impatience gene. If something didn’t turn out right the first time, forget it. I was not going to do it again.
