I think I could become addicted to bias binding as a finish for curved hems.
And, yes, I still stink at blind stitching. Whatever. Busy prints cover multitudes of sins.

I used five different colors of hem tape on this sucker, too. I have a lot of old hem tape to use up, and most of it is not black. Yellow, teal, electric blue, dark blue, olive green.
The flounce is about six inches from the floor when I'm wearing it. Nice length. Long, but not mud-dragging long.
Listening: Justin Townes Earle mix.
Yeah, I'm not kidding. She really knows how to maximize the amount of space she takes up.

He's not that big a deal now (which makes him cheaper!) but in 1990 I would have sold my younger brother for this model. Although, since he was my younger brother, I probably would have sold him for a Slurpee and a Flutter Pony. But I would have come up with a much better excuse to tell my mother if it got me a "Dr Peaches".

I'm just in one of those moods.
Listening: Cowboy Junkies mix ("200 More Miles" as I type this).
It's cold in here and I'm lamenting that my baggy black dress wore out and I never made a new one. I need a new one. The grunge-look* ragdoll I was in high school needs it so she can wear that huge red flannel shirt the way it was meant to be worn.
Sometimes when I'm grumpy I draw ridiculous things with Photoshop during my lunch breaks.

Millenarian: 1) Of or relating to belief in a millenium; in this instance, 1a: the thousand years mentioned in Revelation 20 during which holiness is to prevail and Christ is to reign on earth
Pietist: 2) emphasis on devotional practice and experience. (Actually, I need to look into this more, because that sounds to me like pretty much every belief system, ever.) Pietism at Wikipedia; the Free Dictionary by Farlex; .
Quiescent: 1) Marked by inactivity or repose; tranquilly at rest. 2) Causing no trouble or symptoms [quiescent gallstones]. Obviously, in this context, the former usage applies.
