sorta silly saturday

Sandra, over at Wild Daffodil, has a year-long photo challenge on “windows” and I thought I’d add a photo.

It includes street lamps and hallways. Can you tell what’s what?

Don’t faint. . . but yours truly actually got some sewing done the other day. Remember this cotton batik? Recognise a slight problem? Note the neck facing attached to the front facing which is almost twice as wide as it should be?? Hmmm. Needed some trimming.

Also note the slight excess of fabric (that fold) in the facing of the other side? Measurement showed a one inch difference in the width between the right and left sides. Somehow the whole neck and front facing thingey got very unaligned.

I decided to trim off that extra inch on the too wide side so it would match the other. Maybe that would take care of that extra fabric that was causing the fold.

So I decided it was time to make things right. Note those chalk lines? That’s where the serger evened things out.

Success! Evening out and matching both sides fixed the fold and aligned all the facings. Remaining is tacking those facings down and hemming.

I guess this is called “Slow Sewing.”

silly saturday

Walking to the library . . .

If that lamp post and the trees are straight, what does that mean for the sidewalk?

On the other hand . . .

. . . if the sidewalk is fairly level, the trees and lamp post are definitely leaning.

Is it any wonder I feel a bit weird once I arrive?

Perhaps if I just concentrated on the ground  . . . but that’s rather boring.
