Today I: Asked God to smite the POD... he missed... had the painters in... and hemmed and hawed
The POD loading continued today, in 91% humidity and 28C heat. It was not pleasant, and on more than one occasion I contemplated the pile of junk I was carefully storing away, and considered lighting a match and burning the whole wretched thing to the ground. Obviously God heard me, but is either a crap shot, or had heard that Mum's spinning wheel is in there and was too scared to organise a direct hit...
Painters dropped in and did some wall prep. Note the vile green... thanks previous owners!
To finish a long and tiring day I whipped out the sewing machine... which was covered in so much dust I had to take an antihistamine to stop sneezing... and kicked hemming butt by putting a rolled hem on Miss 11s uniform, and then tackled the dreaded Blind Hem for Miss 12s uniform.
The actual secret to the blind hem is a nifty bit of ironing (http://www.sew4home.com/tips-resources/sewing-tips-tricks/how-sew-blind-hem... highly recommend this How To for anyone interested, the writer is most pithy... sewing and pith... day made)
The fact I have not blind hemmed anything for eons, didn't the right sewing foot AND nearly sewed my finger twice, meant that technically my hem would have a sewing teaching poking me with a stitch ripper.... BUT it turned out good enough for me and Miss 12...
Next job hemming all the curtains... sigh!
