I have a tendency to stop with whatever I'm doing if something goes wrong. Sometimes I'm really stubborn and keep sewing that seam until it does what I want it to, but sometimes, for no reason at all I just quit in the middle of things...like the petticoat that ALMOST finished. Or the pants I've been working on since this july.
Somehow it's always the stuff I'm making for myself that goes into the hiding of the wardrobe(...where it lies ashamed 'til I get a grip on myself and make something new out of it, for someone else....)
I'm simply LOUSY on making the most ordinary thing for myself (give me a gown with a corset and I'll make it anyday)
I guess I'm just funny that way
AND, I guess everyone has their wardrobes full of almost finished items...at least I tell that to my conscience.
