Sorry for the radio silence
I've been single parenting for the past weekish
and the only stitching I've been game for
is stitching back my dignity and spirit with a giant piece of pie
and a serial killer TV show.
I like my sweetie.
I like him especially at the 2 year old's bedtime :)
And now for further crafty news.
Santa came and left me with a...
Thank you Santa!
I hope Santa will also contribute to the therapy
fund required to support learning to use one of these bad boys.
Rather than swearing loudly
while making countless mistakes
on strips of garbage fabric,
I decided to swear loudly while edging flowers.
On sparkly linen.
Threading and changing thread on this machine,
is just as terrifying and daunting as reported.
Total madness without the video.
And even with...
did I mention the swearing?!?
Then I got bold.
And changed things.
Magical buttony, needly, thready things.
And I tried a rolled hem.
but it does involve extra swearing and watching instructional videos
did I mention over?
In other anal retentive bulletins:

I found a new and better home for my ribbon stash.
Off to eat pie and watch Dexter.
(Wait, The Sweetie is back, what's my excuse now?)
