Headcoverings

JayneK: I have actually done some sewing.  In my 7th grade home economics class, I sewed things more complicated than a mantilla.  More than that, I have seen my wife learn to sew more complicated things just be being adventurous and trying new things.

I have had the same experience with things like carpentry, plumbing, cooking, and so on.  If it's really complex, get a professional, but if it's simpler (can't be simpler than a mantilla), and you aren't rich, then it's often worth doing it yourself.

I also avoid doing certain things myself if it's a safety issue or I don't want to ruin something (e.g. I might not attempt electrical work because the cost of error is high).  But with cooking or sewing, what's the worst that is likely to happen?  You mess up a dish, or the first mantilla doesn't come out well.  Try again :-).
