I was naive and excited and chose my first sewing project in this century...an unprinted beauty of a halter dress. I finagled my way through it and with stars in my eyes moved onto the next one. I kept sewing, kept having stars in my eyes and kept finagling. But now with many months behind me I have seen blogs where people REALLY know how to sew. Most of the time when reading them, I don't even know what they are talking about. I wish I did!! I don't have all the proper tools either and my budget at the moment does not allow me to get them. I would love a serger! I would love a self healing mat with rotary scissors.
So I am scared..not really scared, but perhaps afraid to fail. Have you ever been afraid to start something for fear of failure? What got you motivated to get going and try it anyway?Any advise would be helpful.
In a better mind frame...I finally finished and was able to take pictures of the sweater I knit for hubby. I started it last January and he wore it today to my son's graduation from Police K-9 School.

I searched far and wide for the perfect buttons and found these vintage leather beauties in France.
