Sunday morning: Lay out pieces on flat surface, take out Chibi needle, yarn, scissors. Attach one of the front pieces to the back. Quite pleased with self, even though it doesn't look *quite* like I'd hoped. Put it away to work on again another time, since I had to get dressed to go to my Sunday shift at Rosie's.
Monday evening: Pull out work from Sunday morning, deciding it just looks wrong. Re-do. Looks the same. Back in the bag.
Tuesday evening: Decide to carry on, and attach other front to the back. Hm. Looks worse. Pulled out. Re-done. Still looks questionable. Back in the bag.
Wednesday evening: Determined to get it right. Pull out everything, and re-do it. Twice. Aarrgh, it still looks icky! Back in the bag.
Just before falling asleep: It suddenly dawns on me that the reason it looked so crappy each time was because I was doing it incorrectly! Can visualize proper way to do it in brain, but it is late and on Thursday I will be in charge at work, so I must go to sleep.
Today: Had a decent night's sleep. Got to work - no electricity in the library, and bathroom toilet overflows, causing one patron to ask, "The sign on the bathroom door says 'Out of order' - does that mean we can't use it?" Consider pushing him into bathroom and closing door, locking it. Instead, say politely "That's what that means, you'll have to use the bathroom down the hall." Electricity finally comes on about 11:30. Rest of the day passes without major problems. Get home, eat dinner, feed cats, wash dishes, pack lunch for tomorrow. Go to brush teeth, and get two fingers caught in door of bathroom cabinet that has suddenly been repaired after two years. Said fingers swollen and painful, causing entire hand to hurt. Can type using right hand only, but cannot hold a needle, etc. in right hand to work on sweater, as I am left-handed.
Am trying to be philosophical by telling myself that a) tomorrow is another day, and b) fingers and hand will feel better, and I'll have the weekend to take my time sewing the pieces together.
Also? Hoping brain keeps hold of proper seaming technique ...
