» Monday, October 08, 2007A Stitch in Time...Creates Aggravation
I'd planned to not go out today, except perhaps to get some gasoline, and do some crafts, but have ended up starting and half completing a long-delayed sewing project. This started when I discovered one of the hems on James' trousers had come completely unstitched. Since I had all the equipment out anyway, including the ironing board and iron, I blithely went into the project knowing it would take me some time, since I don't have a sewing machine and must hand-stitch, but didn't think it would take three and a half hours! Not to mention only being half finished!
I stick to my assertion that I'd rather scrub the bathroom than sew! I don't know how people who quilt do it, in that crouched position for hours. Leaves my neck stiff and my bones aching. I stretched out by putting up some laundry.
I'm going to start the second half in a few minutes and do just enough that I can put up the iron and board. James is working on Saturday so perhaps I can force myself to sit down and finish it. Now that I know what I'm doing, it may go a little shorter.
