How's this for a swing?

Last night I went to a Home Depot "Do-It-Herself" workshop about power tools. It was fantastic. I was the only one there, and the young girl in her early 20s new more about power tools than anyone I know. It was probably the most perfect learning experience for this situation possible. I even opened up the Home Depot flyer this morning and the pages and pages of tools in there actually made sense to me now.

I also want a mitre saw for my birthday.

After I returned home, all jazzed about starting to learn how to DIY, I grabbed a shirt I want to alter and headed over to the Fabricland sale.

How's that for a swing? Goes to show you how far and wide my interests are. Probably not many people rolling up their sleeves with power tools just before they compare indigo and violet fabrics, trying to decide whether to go with cotton or knit.

My favorite tool! It's one of the few that doesn't scare me.
