My Weekend Task
My hubby had been nagging me to shorten his new jeans for several weeks. We bought him 3 pairs of jeans when we went to the mall last month and had been sitting in the closet since. I told my dear hubby I would shorten it for him sometime. Otherwise, we had to send it to the tailor and would cost us about $11 or so for each pair. So that would be $30++ saving for us if I could do it for him.
But boy oh boy, are men nagging worse than women. For several weeks, most popular Q & A in the house particularly in the morning was 'honey, when are you going to shorten my pants?' and of course the popular answer, ‘don’t worry hon, I would do it sometimes soon.' I was not sure who became irritated more on that Q & A session (LOL). Yeah…yeah, I know, it’s been several weeks already ……haha!
So last weekend, I decided it’s time to get our peaceful morning back. Time to get the job done….haha. The challenging part, it had been almost a decade since I used sewing machine and to get my new sewing machine to work for the first time since I had it 5 months ago. Furthermore, it’s thick jeans I have to alter. Huh! So I did not blame my dear hubby for not have full confidence in me to get the job done. I determine to show him I can do it. So it’s pretty crucial for me to get this first job done successfully.
Ultimately, I had it all done within a few hours. It was not as hard as I thought it would be. Pheeew! And I love my new sewing machine. It works so good and easy, much easier than the one I had many-many years ago. I am very happy with it. If you are looking for a sewing machine, you might want to consider Singer 7442. It cost only $197+. Reviews on it are very good. That’s the reason I had chosen it amongst others at the first place.
Glad I had it all done now. So no more irritating morning for me and I guess for dear hubby too. :-))
