Things I have learned

I am a mental sew-er (not sewer but a person who sews.) What I mean by that is in my mind, I think about a project and I can envision how to do it PERFECTLY. I can see every step and it is all very logical. And then I try to do it. And this is what happens.

First the bobbin tension was way off and left me with a mess of thread on every surface.

Second -- measure twice, cut once, folks. I'll just say that again after you see Halloween costume #1.

Measure twice, cut once.

So Maddie was a Future Mountie (i.e. Mount St. Mary student) for Halloween Part 1. Much like todays students, she wore her uniform skirt way too short, and rolled. And I've already been told by Sr. Carol Anne that she expects to see Maddie in her office on a regular basis. I've also been told tuition is due on Monday, so I'll get right on that.
