I *Am* Sewing. Really, I am.
How lame is it to host a sew along and not post to blog of said sew along? I encountered some non-sewing-related speed bumps and am in the process of recovering. Although I have been working on my jeans and nothing else, that work did not come without dedicated use of my seam ripper. I had problems with the zipper area on both pairs of jeans and had to unpick countless miles (okay...feet...maybe inches) of topstitching. Plus, on one pair, the fabric is just way too stretchy for my taste. The zipper area pulls open so much so that I hand sewed snaps to keep it close. Not. Cute. I will finish these and just wear a long shirt to cover it up. Hopefully, I'll finish this weekend. We shall see.
