When am I getting voted off the island?
I've been a bad, bad knitter - I've been sewing, and thinking about sewing a whole lot recently. I assure you this blog will not turn into a sewing blog until some miraculous event occurs as a result of which I actually enjoy sewing. Until that moment, I sew as a necessity, nothing more.
I'm not quite ready to reveal to you the first sewing project. Suffice it to say that Ms. Bestitched and I went to Fabric Place and had a jolly ol' time picking out fabrics for our projects (one phrase comes to mind: sensory overload). Our trip became that much more fun when we approached the cutting counter with our rolls of fabric (whatever those are called) and asked for, "you know, this much," gesturing with our hands. The look on the cutter's face was priceless.
What was it that I said last time? Oh yeah! Scheiβe! No reason to bore you with details, since we've been down this road once before:
The third project was completely unexpected - I washed my curtains.
What THE HELL happened here?!? They used to reach all the way down to the window sill before, and now... now they provide a magnificent 7" view to all my neighbors across the street and my thermometer feels so exposed.
I confess, working on these projects has been remarkably painless. So, when am I getting voted off Knitter Island? ;)
