An everlasting WIP finally turned out an FO. Hooray!
A closeup of the Ginko leaves can be found here.
The bag turned out pretty nice, don't you agree? I'd wear it myself if it wasn't a custom (okay, and if it wasn't dark-green *g*)
I was almost done with my work yesterday night and I just had to cut back some seam allowances when it happened... oh, forgive me whining here, but.... I MURDERED MY DRESSMAKER'S SCISSORS! Can you hand me a tissue, please?
Yes, I'm a scissors murderer. Oh, woe is me!
To make the long story short: It was late. Very late. I was tired and eager to finally finish my work, when this happened.
You know, I leave my needles pinned to the piece while I sew. I pin them 90° to the seamline, so I can just sew over them without something happening.
Then I take them out.
Except one, which had a dark green head and which I obviously missed.
Then I thought of cutting back the bespoken seam allowance.
....... and found the needle.
Results: Bag finished, Scissors blunt. Hope the man at the key-service can fix it.
Now you may judge me for that crime.
But please take into consideration that I can look very innocent. Imagine that look before you judge.
Have a nice day & take care of your scissors. Like most things we use everyday you'll miss them only after they're gone!
