Trying something new

I decided to finally try something I've always wanted to do - learn to sew and I had my first class yesterday at this fabulous place here in Atlanta called Whipstitch.  Now I've tried my hand at sewing in the past, in fact I took a class when I was in the eighth grade - but I need a reboot because let's just say I'm a bit rusty. 

Last spring I dabbled a bit and made this pillow out a tea towel from Target and my daughter's old pants:

I'm not sure where this class is going to lead.  I have grand visions of reusing old coffee bean sacks...but for now I'll stick with our homework assignment of a mitered napkin.  More than anything, it has been a fun way to get the creative juices flowing in a different crafty medium and to remind myself to keep learning new things.  Wish me luck and I'll keep you posted!
