Sew Addicted

自半年前在多伦多学了个裁缝初学者课程后,就开始喜欢上缝纫。

这次在此也难得有闲空时间,也就拿了个中级裁缝课程来上上。

这几个星期来都学得很开心。也终于忍不住买了部缝衣机。我爱不释手。

妈听了,好笑。我啊这个人一直都很男孩头,怎么现在竟爱上缝纫。

我有些朋友也不敢相信我这个到处乱跑的人会肯坐在缝衣机前。

还有,我常是个三分钟热度的人。

记得当编织很流行时,我曾学过编织围巾。

可是,我太没耐心,觉得编织都是重复同样的动作,我很快就闷坏了。

所以,没两下子,我就放弃不学了。

我买的那一大堆的漂亮棉线就只好躲在储藏室中不见天日。

但我对自己说,缝纫有点不同。

它虽也需耐心,差别是每个步骤都不同,过程有趣多了。

有时也很考脑筋,例如:我很喜欢学习将那平面的布料变成立体的衣服。

最近,我看的书,上网查阅的都与缝纫有关,逛的也是布料店铺。

总之,我有点点上瘾了。

我想,这次我会继续学下去的…

希望我不会又半途而废啦 !

Since attended a beginner sewing course in Toronto about half a year ago, I started to fall in love with sewing. I take an intermediate sewing course this time and am enjoying heaps!

Not being able to restrain myself, I bought a sewing machine recently. The sewing machine is my new baby now and just looking at it make me smiles ! My mother is surprised and wondered why her boyish daughter has suddenly fell in love with sewing, something that she never expected. Some of my friends also can’t imagine their absolutely non-domestic friend has suddenly become domestic.

Unfortunately, I have a tendency of acting impulsively and giving up halfway, just like knitting. A few years ago when knitting become a popular and trendy hobby, I attempted to learn it. I had bought lots of yarns and believed that I would make a few beautiful scarfs. However, I am an extremely impatient person and I got bored with the repeating actions pretty quickly. So, the beautiful yarns ended up in my storeroom and never got used.

However, this time, I convinced myself that sewing is different. Although it also needs patience, sewing involves many different steps in the whole process that can keep my interest up. I personally find sewing is much more fun and challenging, for example, I love learning how to turn the 2D fabric pieces into a 3D garment.

Recently, I find myself reading many books and websites related to sewing, I find myself shopping in fabric stores frequently. I think I am a little addicted….

I think, this time is different. I think, I will continue to learn sewing. Let’s hope I will not give up halfway. Finger crossed !
