The long seams are all sewn and pressed [that was very hot sweaty work], and slow but sure, they’re also being caught down to the underlining. This really does make a difference to the finish on special projects, and is not too boring as long as I have an audiobook to listen to.
While I was doing tidy work, I also pinked all the seams allowances in the lining, because it was fraying just hanging there waiting to be used.
I don’t mind hand sewing, I just cut loads of lengths of thread, wax them, and then thread several of my precious Black Gold needles at once. I’m addicted to these now, but they are so light and fine, that I regularly go into tantrum mode after dropping one. Bloody invisible unless trodden on.
I think I have gremlins in the sewing room today in any case- I prepped and waxed a dozen lengths of thread just now, turned round, and they had ALL vanished. Baffling.
Do you get frequent gremlin attacks?
