Well, it’s been a while, but the sewing gods demanded more of me yesterday than just spending an hour re-threading the overlocker five times, and went for the blood sacrifice.
I was getting on with the coat [collar’s on, skirts are joined to bodices, hole in lining mended …shhhh….] and the end is in sight. I got out my wonderclips [thanks to CatherineDaze for reminding me I had some!] and got lining and coat ready to sew together, zip basted and clipped in place. Seriously, the end is near, after this, it’s sleeves [already assembled and lined] and hem, so a small amount of machine sewing and an hour or two of hand finishing.
OBVIOUSLY time for a sacrifice, so I obliged and machined my left index finger. Good job the coat is red, is all I’m saying! OW.
It’s scabbed over now, so I should be able to continue. If I was religious/superstitious, I’d be praying to whichever saint looks after needleworkers [bound to be one, they’re like rabbits these saints, turn round and there’s another dozen]
Wish me luck, I’m heading back in!
