See Sara Sew

I’ve been wanting a sewing machine for quite a long time.  The husband and I talked about having one brought from the States but it just didn’t seem practical.  Then he found a good deal in Merkato.  My machine has been humming along nicely and it’s pretty easy to use.  There’s a lot of satisfaction in making something (like my bath mat for instance!) when you just can’t find it here or it costs a ridiculous amount of money.

Can I just say – I miss shopping! I have shopping dreams where I’m at some sort of mall and I’m finding everything I want.  It’s silly.  There’s no easy-button you can push here and get everything on your list.  It’s irritating sometimes.  But sometimes going ‘without’ isn’t so terrible.  It’s good to hit the creative-button too.
