Being happy, then being stabby.



Lining was,sewn into the arm parts, sleeves still unattached.


Getting my layout together.  Going from a series of Shane’s measurements and a photo of a Blackbeard sculpture Shane chose.

As the people who live here are sick, I had to leave work early and call in today.  I was up until 3 ish, playing Florence Knightengale and working my fingers literally to the bone, as my first and middle finger are bruised and bleeding.

Use a thimble? You have my skeleton like hands and try and work a damned thimble.  Anyway.



Ha, the stool looks like peg legs.


Now the area hanging in the middle, the fabric in split has to be ironed and sewn down. 


Now I showed it to Shane and apparently it’s all wrong, and he’s soooo glad he’s not a client, because everytime he “makes a comment” I “act like an ass”.

Numero uno, I never intended to be anyone’s fucking seamstress.  I was doing it to save us $.  Go ahead, google historically accurate Blackbeard the pirate coat for sale.  Tell me how historical or inexpensive it is.



Now YES, the buttons are on the wrong side. Easy fix, they were pinned on.  The part of taking in the crack..coyldnt do it last night, I was too tired.

And instead of an apology I get:
I’m so sorry I want it to be right.

So I sent him this:


He’s lucky I didn’t rip it to shreds, as I am known for fits of dramatics and anger.

If I hadn’t worked so hard and my feelings weren’t so hurt, I would just be like whatever, and fix it.

So for the rest of the day, while I watch over my two children, I will work on my projects, the things I have neglected for a month and a half.  Dammit.
