*jesse just informed me that this was too far for even him to read without being sicked out and that he is the one person who it maybe wouldn't disgust and it still very much did. so my sincerest apologies if this has gone too deep into the realm of shocking. as always, i am just being honest. sheesh. censored by my own lifemate.
ok, in quilting you are supposed to make sure everything lines up just right and all that. but i was hand-cutting all my strips and making edges only a drunken badger could follow rather than the straight lines that my nerd-tools will produce when they arrive. so clearly that was lacking and that's why the grey stripe isn't in line. the skill was there, i was just working with shoddy materials. uh-huh, definitely.
shewing (get it?) off my equipment. yup, i am hardcore. and yes, those are precious little stickers decorating the sewing machine that her previous owner adorned her with.
wish me luck. and if you never hear about this little endeavor again, don't bring it up because i have quit and am embarassed and am using my rotary fabric cutter to make quesadillas.
