So, I've hauled out the sewing machine, and am Doing What I Said I Would Do, which you can freely translate thusly:

-Hemming the $2 kitchen curtains that we found at the dollar store, that are slightly too wide for the kitchen windows, so they fit. One down, one to go.

-Making a pillow body for the obsessive piece of embroidery I made for R in 2005, which needs to be attached to a pillow made for it.

-Making curtains for the downstairs window, out of the other nine yards of the pillow fabric.

-Making a second pillow, out of contrasting black faux suede fabric.

It's been a long time since I've sewn something. In the meantime, I'm minus a seam ripper, I can't remember how to make my trusty Viking reverse or set its stitches, and the said trusty Viking has a broken knob which I will have to figure out how to replace.

In the process of hemming the first kitchen curtain, I managed to sew the rod pocket shut.. Because I would just do something like that. Because, okay, spatial task. Fine. I now have a clue, and a bent pin I can use as a seam ripper. Never you mind how I bent the pin, either.
