Hem Hawing...


Well... it's COLD... 17* this morning... THAT is COLD...
I've been staying busy... doing a lot of things that I'm not really a FAN of doing... (this is NOT my favorite time of the year if I may offer a confession)... you know... all the HOLLY JOLLY HOLIDAY STUFF... I've been visiting LOTS of blogs and am just in AWE of all the neat crafty things people are doing for this holiday season... I think (ok... I pretty much KNOW) I was born "sans" the "I LOVE CHRISTMAS" gene... inherited (or I guess NOT inherited) from my FATHER'S side of the family tree... I mean... I don't DESPISE the whole season... just the "rush" of getting things done... having (OK.. not REALLY having... but being made to FEEL like "HAVING TO") to DO... when I don't REALLY want to... I'll get through it... but I am looking forward to Jan. 2nd already... is that WRONG???
One of the things I've been doing is HEMMING... HEMMING... HEMMING and more hemming... I don't MIND it... but I am NOT a FAN of this particular sewing "talent"... especially when the hem differs by about 1/2" on each leg (you know... the whole one leg longer than the other thing... really... I AM NORMAL)... I measure TWICE... and then TWICE more... and then one more time before I make the cut... I would like to know WHO the heck has legs as LONG as manufaturers make these pants??? (Peggy... betcha NEVER have to hem right???) So the HEMMING has come to an end for the moment... all pants/jeans/skirts DONE... something I had been wanting to mark off "THE LIST" since FALL...
On to the next thing...

Haha! I hate to hem, too! By hand or machine. :P

With the earlier and earlier start to the Shopping Season (truly believe we have all lost sight and minds of the real Reason for the Season when someone will say, "so what ELSE are you getting for him/her?")...I feel like I am already behind the 8 ball and it's only December 7!

At this point, bring on the hemming! Sounds a lot more fun. o_0

Oh good...I'll send my pants right over :) I hate hemming too. That's why my new pants are still hanging in my closet too long for me to wear and I keep complaining about not having any pants to wear ;) It will be January in a blink of an eye. Just enjoy the stillness of winter with your family and try to forget about the rest!!!
