I sewed. Yep, I sewed my swatch for my steeking class. I stressed over it, but took my mothers advice of using tissue paper over the stitches. After an initial tension issue, I managed to sew it just fine with very pleasingly straight lines. So it leaves me a bit of tissue paper on the edges, doesn’t matter, it is a swatch. It served its purpose and I won’t be as scared again.
Which means I am all ready for stitches midwest now!
