Believe it or not, I just finished muslin #7 of My Heart's Aflutter, and it STILL is too high in the front. I don't get that! I did a full 1 1/4" (total allowed per LC) FBA, PLUS I added some more to the length of the front. Crazy! I took pictures, but I never could get one where the hem looked level and straight, so I decided to do this short video just for myself. I'm sharing it with whoever cares, which is probably nobody, lol.
I am going to do ONE MORE MUSLIN. I made this video for MYSELF, but you can watch it if you like. I was trying to see if the front of this blouse was STILL pulling up on me. It looks like it still is. More tomorrow, or the next day. I'm still sewing.
I had one big emergency with this version. You can imagine after changing the paper pattern SEVEN times, it looked like it was ready for major surgery or the dump, one. I got the not-so-brilliant idea to iron some of the cheap Hancock's Pellon interfacing to the back of the paper to stabilize it.
Well guess what that did to my pattern????????????????? Can you guess?
It wasn't so bad on the main pieces, but the interfacing caused the facings to shrink so much, that they could not even be applied. I had to redraw and recut all the facings. AARRGGHH!!! Wish I had thunk of that!
No, I didn't forget sermon notes. The sermon was about the Feast of Trumpets, and it was very good. I would love for you to hear it. Taking time to know our God is the most important thing of all.
The sermon was about the word "rapture" not being in the Bible, and about the actual rapture of the church possibly happening any moment.
My Mother has been telling me all my life that she is going to go in the rapture. She is 85 and refuses to buy the plot at the graveyard next to Daddy or to make any kind of arrangements. I fought until my fought was worn out, and I gave up. I hope she is right, and I am wrong.
Better go. DANCING WITH THE STARS starts again tonight. Our very favorite show!
