So here I am cruising along this request, when suddenly my needle snapped. Well, I come to realize that, that was my last denim needle! To top it all off, it had slipped my mind to purchase double fold bias tape and some connector rings... which to be able to continue further, I can't do without (still kicking myself ). I can't make any bias tape because I have no spare matching cloth to make it from...
Unwilling to lose hope, I decided to take my chances with the next town over hoping that they would have what I need; even though it was just a wal-mart I was going to (waaay more than my town can boast)... alas, my hopes were for naught. Everything was there... just not in black like I needed (least I got a pack of needles); gas money right down the damn drain...
How aggravating it is to live so far from everything! It costs too damn much money and time to get the simplest things! UGH.
Wrenching myself out of this road block was no easy task, and forcing myself to look into my sketch/note books and begin preparations for the skirt to blouse project on my list was no picnic either. I usually take the time to reflect on the project pending, and refuse to think about anything else. Not this time; this month I made it a mission to waste no time waiting.
|I think, therefore I...can?|
*sigh* It's things like this that remind me why it would be best not to take requests from anyone at this time-- even from friends.
I have such a hard time saying 'no' to the people I care about; it's not necessarily a bad thing, until something like this happens, and I begin stressing over it.
Probably redundant to repeat it since it's at the very bottom of my page, but I have a few new readers (always good to see new ones! Welcome!). My designs are my own, please do not copy without my explicit consent-- I mention it on this particular post because I am sharing a new design straight from my books.
