The beginnings of my very first Halloween apron... I adore this retired fabric - Old Hallow's Eve by Robert Kaufman .
Note to self:
1) Get the flat pins - anyone have pin recommendations? I think I will go with the flat head quilting pins. But still doing tiny hems? hmm I wander... It is like I need short pins or something... Open to thoughts on this!
2) Always buy more trim than anticipated! I am at least a 1/2 yard off for the trim. Gerr. Thats okay... JOANN's has really done well in Trims lately so no complaints here!
3) Never watch vintage Battlestar Galactica prior to doing a sewing project. As luck would have it, I caught the last one where Athena (Mrs. Capt. Apollo i.e. luckiest woman on the BG planet!) dies and Boxey(don't you love that name?) and Starbuck (Richard!Hatch!) are all cryinnnn. I was almost crying with 'em.
But seriously- to this day - I still want to know WHY they didn't have that poor woman who played Athena put something on her other than a fricken sheet when she was dying? REALLY now! I mean? It was like they were waiting for her to die so they could put a toe tag on her or bury her in space? or worse - cremate her or something! *shudder* Also ... when you get shot by those lazer thingys... really WHAT happens to you? Because it really took her an awefully long time to die. *sigh* TV shows... I tell ya. :)
But the uniforms make up for all those picky lax details in space gun technolgy. :)
Oh it is late so that means I have to go get some zzzzz ya'all! Nite NITES! Nan
