"When you have a great and difficult task, something perhaps almost impossible, if you only work a little at a time, every day a little, suddenly the work will finish itself."
– Isak Dinesen
8:00 last night I was certainly wishing that this rug WOULD finish itself!
I was sewing my covered cording and had about 5 feet finished when the machine
jammed up. Really, this was a blessing in disguise, because when I took the
cording out I could see that the bottom thread was all wadded up.
I “googled” the problem, adjusted the tension, ripped out about 3 feet of seam
and then got back to it. We’re talking 21 feet of covered cording to make.
Let me just say that I give the phrase “cussing like a sailor” a whole new
meaning when I sew!
1/2 a sleeve of Girl Scout cookies later, (yes people, that
is stress eating at it’s finest!) I had the cording finished.
I’m in the clear……
…..or am I?
Zig-zagging around such a heavy rug was a challenge….
this is one heavy rug! Even though I was working at the
dining room table, so I’d have more room to distribute the
weight of the rug, it was still frustrating!
However, I persevered and I’m finished with the machine sewing…
now on to the hand-sewing!
Will I have it finished in time to take to Lenexa tomorrow morning?
