I am currently trying to get down sewing so i can make some body armor carriers and chest rig gear. Boy toy junk mostly for me to play with. I seriously am a moron apparently because as soon as my wife or her mother thread the machine and walk away and i look at it it pretty much refuses to stay threaded or to even stay threaded. I am so ready to give up on this.

i honestly cannot recall the last time i felt so incredibly fucking frustrated. i feel like a ten year old who just broke his favorite toy. what gets me is i found ACU camo material at the Walmart and was like "oh shit now i can make my own chest rig if i get some more stuff " i buy about 6 yards of acu at 3 bucks a yard. i get needles for finishing edges or attaching thick nylon or whatnot and i buy a few of those 6 foot lengths of 1 in wide black webbing with buckle attached from the outdoor department. then i get some shit called batting which is also called padding in my world. anyway i spent about 40 bucks on junk and now i cant figure it out.

My biggest failure is painting.

I can draw pictures 'til my heart is content, but for some reason I have a mental block with painting pictures.

I tried, I tried, I tried... but I cannot make it work. I'm slowly trying to work myself into it, but it's been years since I last tried paints. I have a great program for my computer called "Painter" and have been periodically familiarizing myself with it but I haven't come close to mastering anything.

For some reason I have a very hard time with mixing colors (acrylics and watercolors are what I have tried, both for classes and on my own). I'm not colorblind by a long shot, but for whatever reason... It just doesn't happen for me.

I can use dry media (charcoals and colored pencils) well.
