Wish Me Sewing Luck!

I have a couple projects left for Lucky's room.  One of them involves this fabric:

and this machine:

I recently set the machine up in our guest room on a desk we moved in from the basement family room.  The sewing machine and the desk are both from my parents.  When I was young (like 6 or 7), I was so amazed by my mom's sewing machine that I asked if she'd give it to me when she died.  Seriously, who does that?  I'm embarassed, and my mom won't let me forget about it:).  Anyway, she gave me her sewing machine recently, and I have yet to use it.  I'm scared to use it, actually.  I don't have much patience with putzy work.  I save my patience for my kids.  Sewing is putzy and requires patience, especially when you're a beginner, like me.

I once made a dress and a purse on a sewing machine, so I've been successful in the past.  It's just that my past success was about 20 years ago and immediately following a Home Ec class in junior high.  Hopefully, after this project, I won't wait another 20 years before sewing anything else:).

Last weekend, my mother-in-law helped me string it/set up the machine (I don't know sewing verbage).  It works.  We tested it.  Now, the pressure is on.  It's time to get sewing!

Here is my plea:

Sewing Gods, please let my sewing project go smoothly.  I want to have the option to sew things.  Like curtains for Charm's room and pillow covers for everywhere.  And Real God, if you have a spare second, could you lend me a hand and some patience?

Very Sincerely,

Wish me luck and have a great weekend!
