NOT A STRAIGHT SEAM AMONG THEM


SC County Fair: One of the Needle arts first place winners.

I woke this morning with a nightmare fresh in my mind.  I had really made a half inch error putting in the facings on my Comic Con costume.  At the end of the night mare a solution came to me. 

I dearly wish I could sew as well as this person could.  Look at this wonderful piece of creativity correctly assembled.  I hope the young lady who sewed this had no nightmares over her work.  The judges and I agreed, It’s a wonderfully sewn work of art.  I was never great at it, but never before have I irrevocably made such a unreparable error.

Then again, I have a picture of me in a plaid dress, and nowhere does the plaid match.  Sometimes all you can do is laugh at yourself.

  • Himself:  Visit Poolie.  Museum today.  Starts as meeting Chair on Sunday up at the big table.  Normal hours Monday.
  • Herself:  Teapots at work so a Poolie visit is in order.  I think I will visit museums today instead of struggling to correct all my fabric errors this afternoon.  Will miss holding G’s hand on Sunday evenings.
  • Reading:  Today starting a train book, but he is awfully cynical.  It doesn’t make for a comfortable read.

  6. I used to make the children's (simple) clothing - only once attempted something for myself. Never again!
    I'm sure you'll sort yours out - can't wait to see it.

  7. Sewing ain't what it used to be and few seem to do it, but my niece (great niece, I guess) is always sewing new clothes. It's her thing.
