Top stitching- If at first you don't suceed...

I'm still learning the basics of sewing.  I'll be taking a sewing class on the 24th (had to reschedule due to the death in the family) but I wanted to get the feel of my machine and try out some basics before the class.  Most patterns include top stitching.  That's where I have a great deal of trouble.

I took some scrap fabric and practiced

 And kept on practicing until I got better at it.  It's going to take me some time to get used to it.

 And then I went back and tried sewing my project.  It wasn't the straightest top stitch but it was much closer to the edge.

 Take that top stitch!  You won't defeat me.

What you're saying is completely true. I know that everybody must say the same thing, but I just think that you put it in a way that everyone can understand. I'm sure you'll reach so many people with what you've got to say.
