I didn't. But I pretended that the sewing kit my mom gave me gave me the right to say I could. And that is why I have fixed the hem on a pair of pants, made wristbands out of socks, and sewn buttons back onto a shirt and a blazer all in the past month. Maybe that's not real sewing. I'm going to keep pretending.
As far as my other homemaking skills, well, the knitting, that's not coming along as well but I'm sort of strapped for time with more pressing things (classes, membership ed, sleep, socializing--maybe not in that order...) so I figure I'll just do it this summer. Along with the learning how to cook.
