Today I am thinking about all the things I would like to learn. They are as follows:
1. To learn to play the flute.
2. To learn to knit a sweater, mittens, and socks.
3. To learn to put a quilt together with the backing that wraps around to make a binding and to learn to quilt it together.
With the third, I have always put my quilts together like a big pillow. With right sides together and binding laid down I sew all around the edges and then turn it right side out and sew up the whole. Then I keep it in place with the tying method using embroidery floss. I have never actually done a quilted quilt, kwim?
I am thinking of doing a wall hanging or table run to help me learn on a smaller project.
For #2, if I can ever get a free night (smiling while I say this, really!), I would like to go and knit at a local Knit Shop. You can go there free and sit with your project and knit with other ladies and the women who work at the store will help you with your project.
For #1, well someday when we have the money I'll buy a flute and a book and go for it! Right now I am in "praying stage!"
What would you like to learn?
