Reading, knitting, quilting and the 50,000 other little things I do to keep my brain working.

Well, today, I finished the skirt I've been working. I gave up on the blind hem. I think the fabric was a little too unwieldy (ie: hard to press and get it to actually stick), and I'd tried the hem so many times, I had a bunch of stitches I couldn't entirely pull out (that blind stitch is complicated on the wrong side!). So I did a simple hem.
And guess what? It's slightly too tight. Oh well. At least I know what I'm dealing with, and I shouldn't have any trouble modifying the pattern to make it loose enough. And it was mostly a do in a day pattern. With some different fabric, I might just accomplish that.
