A little less "Uh oh"...

So, with fear in my heart, I headed to the fabric stores this weekend to get supplies to start my "challenging" sewing project. I found some great fabric, in colors I hope my buddy will hopefully not hate, and all the notions necessary to complete the project. The scary part about that is that the weakest link (i.e. my skill and expertise at handling the machine and interpreting directions) is now the only thing standing between me and a finished product.

In order to maintain my sanity and be my own little cheering section, I'm probably going to chronicle my adventures with this project right here in my blog in the hopes that one day I'll be able to look back, finished project in hand, and beam with accomplishment. Or at least, reflect on the lessons I've learned from getting in drastically over my head.

Status of project:
  • All fabric pieces have been cut
  • 4 of 10,000 pieces have been sewn
  • Zero blood has been spilled

  1. Cute Finny...I'm not a great sewer myself (and also worry that I will dissapoint my BTbuddy). But I know a few things and if you get really stuck feel free to fire a question my way...if nothing else I'm bound to have a book with the answer in it - heh! Good luck.


[2013 update: You can't comment as an anonymous person anymore. Too many douchebags were leaving bullshit SPAM comments and my inbox was getting flooded, but if you're here to comment in a real way like a real person, go to it.]

Look at you commenting, that's fun.

So, here's the thing with commenting, unless you have an email address associated with your own profile, your comment will still post, but I won't have an email address with which to reply to you personally.

Sucks, right?

Anyway, to remedy this, I usually come back to my posts and post replies in the comment field with you.

But, if you ever want to email me directly to talk about pumpkins or shoes or what it's like to spend a good part of your day Swiffering - shoot me an email to finnyknitsATgmailDOTcom.
