My mom got me a sewing machine for Christmas, so I was able to sew some pillows I had been putting off for months. Low and behold! It was so much easier than doing things by hand! It took me a couple hours what would have taken me a couple weeks (on and off....). I did have a little problem with the needle, but it wasn't that bad, and I figured things out. Thanks, mom! We finally have pillows in the library!
