Sew What?

I used to sew. A lot. By hand. My best friend since kindergarten, LK, and I used to buy clothes at thrift stores and sew them into new designs that we called “recycled fashions.” We even sold some of our clothes online. In college, when people needed a costume for a costume party, they usually came to me and I would help them make something. I used to do a lot of sewing by hand. It was relaxing and enjoyable.

Today my hands are so demented it just took me half an hour to replace a button on the shirt I was wearing yesterday. Granted, it was a weirdo fabric-covered button (i.e. not your ordinary button with a couple of holes in it), but still. It was one button. It should have taken approximately three minutes, tops.

::sigh:: At least I did it in the end, I guess.

i was going to write something about missing hyenaihateyou and perhaps having you send me your mending (i'll do it! it's waaaay better than civ pro!), but then i saw that my word verification for this comment is...

"spern"

i wish you could see the font.

i know i don't comment often enough, but i do read your blog a few times a week. i'm sending you good vibes every day (i live in san francisco now; statements like this are taken as serious descriptions of fact).

um....I'm pretty sure just about ANYTHING is better than civ pro. RA might be better than civ pro. At least with RA, sometimes they give you vicodin. ~;o)
