Mom and dad Phraner (parents extraordinaire!) were uber-kind and gave me a sewing machine for Christmas. It’s pretty much idiot-proof which is GOOD. Sewing machines and I haven’t really hit it off in the past, but this one? Well, we get along pretty darn well. 🙂 It even threads its own needles! Anyway, I’d been messing around with some scraps fabrics I had, sewing several squares together as practice. Low and behold, it ended up actually morphing into something of significance. I made a new eyeglass case! This is something that I actually need and can really use. I didn’t have a plan or a pattern. I literally threw it together, and I think it came out quite cute. I’m a proud chickadee! Thanks mom and dad!
