I don't belong to many sewing communities because the overwhelming majority of posts are photos of t-shirt reconstructions or requests for step-by-step directions of things that would be much simpler to learn by using a purchased pattern, reading a book or taking a class, so I boggled when someone posted to advanced_sewing:
[. . .]  Anyway, i have a sewing machine, and i have an incredible pattern...but i don't know how to use it. Could someone tell me about how to use it and such?

Even after they replied to the first comment, I still can't tell whether they don't how to use a sewing machine or a pattern. Buh?

Now that you've had your daily moment of Zen...

  • A few project links for future reference:

  • We're still discussing making the teepee. We don't want to spend too much on fabric and aren't in agreement yet on what type of fabric to use. I think a survey of the $1-2/yard choices at Hancock and Wal-Mart this weekend is in order.

  • IKEA is opening a store this summer in Frisco. A window-shopping pilgrimage sans midget would be a wonderful thing to do for my birthday.

  • Wednesday is refrigerator boogie day for FlyLady folks, so I'll hold the bag open while you toss -- or something like that. I've been doing it in fits and starts today, so the top shelf is done and I'm slowly working my way down.

I always like the restaurant they have, good food very cheap.

We are agreed on the fabric survey this weekend.

And, you have far more restrictions on babysitters than I ever did, so you find one for your birthday and we can do anything you like to celebrate.

I wake up on the snarky side of the bed everyday.
I caused a bit of a stir recently in patternsource for telling someone that wanted to make flared leg warmers to "practice the tiniest bit and [surely you] can figure it out." I meant it as a nod to her skills but I can see why she didn't receive it as such.

Honestly though. A pattern for something with, at most, 2 seams, a hem and a casing????
