Last Sunday I decided it would be a great idea to take a nap at 6:00 pm. Late night naps are terrible ideas. Because when you wake up at 8:00 pm, you will be very, very awake and have nothing to do. Then you’ll get angry and bored, and be forced to stomp around the house in a very mature fashion.
Around 10:00, I figured I could probably put my new sewing table to the test and try to make another shirt out my girls’ dress pattern. My mom had sent me curtains from my childhood kitchen and it seemed just the perfect time to use them.
Not only am I a fairly terrible sewer, I’m also a fairly slow sewer. Five and a half hours later, lots of profanity, several buttons, and more ripped-out seams that necessary, I transformed the kitchen curtains into some sort of buttoned shirt. It looks a little rough, but it hasn’t stopped me from wearing it to work.
(It turns out I don’t feel particularly motivated to photograph my progress in the early morning.)
One day my neighbors are going to walk out the door to find me sitting in the backyard with the camera lashed to the fence.
