Am I the only one who has a bottomless bin of items that need to be hemmed, altered or repaired?
Most people know better than to give me things to sew. But seems my immediate family hasn’t gotten the memo.
I like to create new things. I don’t want to fix others’ creations. There’s no creative process…no fabric to select, no trims to add, nothing to embellish…totally uninspiring.
My procrastination probably stems from the time several years ago when Mr. Diva asked me to hem his pricey velour sweat suit. My serger literally ate a chunk of the velour in the middle of the pant leg.
However, I needed to get over my fear as my 9-year-old son is down to 2 pair of pants that fit him. Like a good mother, I purchased 10 pair of pants in the appropriate size. That was at least 2 months ago. They all need to be hemmed at least 4 inches in length.
Last night, it took me no less than 2 hours to measure, cut and serge the bottom of each pant leg. Perhaps next weekend, I’ll actually finishing hemming them. Maybe not.

Oh, my poor Garden Room! With all the snow melting, my Garden Room roof is shot. Not only is the roof a loss, but so are the wood walls.
We have to completely rip down the Garden Room and rebuild it this year due to all the water damage.
So now I’m trying to design a new 3 Season room without breaking the bank. Whatever I decide, it’s going to have to have lots of big windows (like this one above)! All I need now is to hit the Lotto. Yep.
