Sewing Stuff

Well, sort of sewing.  I'm hemming pants for my boys.  My heavens the children grow quickly!  Often the sizes needed are too long in the leg, necessitating a few cuts and **gasp** some sewing . . .
Vroom, Vroom Goes the Sewing Machine
Have I mentioned how much I dislike sewing?  I dislike it so much that I often forgo any ironing-- just to get the job done quickly.  And often I don't even pin down the hem (I know it's crazy, but its true).  I just eyeball it 'cuz I wanna be done with the whole affair (although I will  mark off measurements on the wrong side so I know where to fold the fabric--and yes, I did just use permanent marker).  Its rather surprising how often my hems end up straight (must be in the genes as my mom worked as a seamstress for many, many years).

Another Completed Hem
Two pairs of pants hemmed.  Four more to go.  Maybe I'll save those for next weekend . . . my nerves are feeling a wee bit frayed.  Perhaps some nice crocheting or knitting can soothe away the tension . . . . 

Hope your weekend was full of crafting goodness. ;)


  1. lol! i love that you eyeball your hems --- i too am fairly casual when it comes to those sort of things, tho i do always get out the ironing board.

    i have found myself doing much more sewing than i planned for this fall -- must be sewing in the air ;-)

  2. Any sewing I do is purely accidental, LOL. Are you sewing anything special, Knitinsage? I better get over to your blog to see what you're up to.
