In the middle of sewing a dress for myself, and decided the bodice needed a lining. The neckline isn't so curved that I would have had trouble understitching it on the machine, but that's one thing I enjoy doing by hand - I can better feel that everything's smoothed out properly.

(Of course, if I'd been as fussy about proper lighting, my stitches wouldn't be so uneven!)  


  1. Yes, good lighting is essential as your eyes get a bit older,my tiny back stitches on a name label were not too precise yesterday, but it had more to do with Coco headbutting my hand, while sitting on my lap, than lack of adequate lighting.....I wonder what made her think she would get some stroking by being THAT bothersome?
