it was bad
i did the worst sewing of my life yesterday. seriously the worst. it was a combination of factors really. i hadn't been at the machine in such a long time, and my list of things to do was driving me batty. and so i started speed sewing. not a good idea. add to that something new (fold over elastic) and my "oh i'll just trace something" pattern making. i could tell it was bad even as i was sewing. i had that whole just push through (speed up) and get it done panic thing going on. like when i eat oklahoma joe's french fries, i just cant stop even though i know i should and i am starting to feel kind of sick. yeah. it was like that. it was so bad that i hemmed a pair of my pants (the ones up there) afterwards just to make me feel better. hemming! so anyway. i should listen to my inner self and not try to cram even more into an already bursting at the seams week. on a more pleasant note, my pants look quite nice. i am wearing them today with sandals and not dragging them all over the floor. yay me!
