That’s right! I finished the curtains.
Kate paid me a visit last night and helped me remember what we had planned on doing to finish them. I had zero intention of working on them last night, so after visiting with Kate until 8:30 or so, I decide I would work out. So I spent 30 minutes on the elliptical, showered, and then had no idea what I was going to do for the rest of the evening. Andrew had to “monitor” until midnight. (Monitoring is something to do with checking a running script every few minutes to make sure it is still running. Servers, computers, scripts, upgrades, downtime, blah…) Normally if Andrew has to stay up for work later than 10 or 11, I go to bed without him. This time…I decided to stay up and finish the curtains. I was in bed my midnight, but Andrew was not. I think it was much later than that, but I was dead to the world in a matter of minutes…so I can’t be sure exactly what time he came to bed. (Somebody in India was supposed to take over at midnight, but I guess that somebody wasn’t great at telling time.)
Ok, so they aren’t entirely finished. Kate still has to buy buttons and we are going to have a movie watching and sewing on buttons party. That brown circle on the left, that’s where the buttons are going to go.
I managed to complete this project with almost no injuries. I had a minor scare with the edge of the iron and the edge of a hand, but nothing came of it. However, do not hold the thread nippers in your hand while you are turning wheel, unjamming fabric, cussing, etc. You will slice a very small, but bloody, section of your index finger.
Small nicks and cuts happen all of the time. I ignore them all of the time and go on my merry way. Not with this cut! It bled. I was right in the middle of ignoring it and noticed a few drops of something in the red-colored family on my hand. My immediate thought was…”The fabric is bleeding!” Haha, just kidding. I actually thought that I had marked myself with my new pink Frixion pen. (Thanks, Mom!) Well, that was not the case. I was definitely bleeding. A quick stop to the first aid drawer and I was back to sewing. (Note to self: Buy bandages.) I don’t know about you all, but I am a dangerous sewer…at least to myself.
Have a great week!
