Is there a "worst post" award? I'm pretty sure this one would win.
Yes folks, we have not only bad lighting but also boring content!
I finally decided I couldn't put off sewing the stocking linings any longer. I've been dreading it. I don't know how to sew. I have a sewing machine... in storage. Apparently way, way in the back of the storage unit because I couldn't find it. Not that my sewing would have been much better if I'd used a machine. Only slightly faster.
Did I ever tell you about the time I failed sewing lessons? Yep, I failed sewing lessons and the teacher suggested I find a different hobby. It was so disheartening!
I think it was back in my senior year of high school, maybe the year before... Really doesn't matter, but I was a teen and I took a class at the local technical center. Our final project was to sew a dress. I was so excited about making myself a dress! I loved the fabric I'd picked out so much I can still picture it today. It was green with blue flowers and white butterflies on it. Doesn't get much more late '70's than that!
Anyway, my dress was dismal. One sleeve was longer than the other and the zipper was inside out and upside down. I was heart broken!
Personally, I think I have potential talent. I think I just had a lousy teacher. And despite everyone else's dress turning out perfectly, I'm determined my pathetic non-dress was the teacher's fault, not mine.
All I can say is, thank goodness the stockings will only be used once a year. It means the lining has a chance of holding up long enough for Hayden to start kindergarten.
