What a way to start the New Year - in the company of my faithful friend QuickUnpick.
So here I am, New Year's morning, madly trying to finish a very overdue gift, and I got the seam allowance wrong! Aargh. And of course I sewed the entire thing with a stitch length of 1 so as to very securely hold the vintage linen in place. My own fault really for mixing up my ambitions with my ability, and for arrogantly thinking such things as: "surely it won't be that complicated" and "patterns are for other people" and "who needs a tutorial?"
I sincerely hope your New Year is off to a better start than mine!
