The idiom “chink in one’s armor” refers to an area of vulnerability. It has traditionally been used to refer to a weak spot in a figurative suit of armor. The standard meaning is similar to that of Achilles’ heel. ~ Wikipedia
I have a
HUGE tiny chink in my housewife armor…SEWING! I “made” an apron at a Rhody Bloggers craft night & when I say “made” I mean I sewed cut pieces together, not as straight as I would have liked. My friend Joanna saw my apron & was the to point out the chink in my armor! She was soooo right! My Mom taught me to sew when I was younger, but it has been awhile. Which brings me to my apron… I forgot all about putting the foot down so my stitches were not straight, once I put the foot down my stitches got much straighter.
I reached out to my sewing guru friends Kameron & Liz for some recommendations for sewing machines. Another friend, Michele, had just bought a new sewing machine & mentioned hers. Time for some research…. I decided to go with the Singer 7258 Stylist, which I was able to get on Amazon for $164.99.
I just go my sewing machine today, by tonight I plan to be sewing! I bought some fabric to make some skirts for my girls. I also started on some dresses with an older sewing machine, which I will be able to finish now. I will take you all on my sewing journey, let you see what I’m making & how it is going! I must learn & master the art of sewing!! I don’t want to many chinks in my housewife armor…
