i’ve been thinking about doing a “confession sunday” series for a while now, where i talk about unfinished projects, random thoughts, projects that may have seemed loved but are now discarded, my messy sewing space, that kind of thing. the photos will be mostly unstyled, the posts will be short, and it’ll happen just every so often, but i think it’ll feel good to get things off my chest. sometimes blogland (my blog included) is maybe a little TOO “perfect,” and we all know reality is anything but.
in some instances, these confessions might even motivate me to clean/organize/do better!
(EDIT: people’s blogs are their own personal spaces, and if you care to only show pretty finished projects i’m TOTALLY cool with that – that’s how i am too, most of the time! i read blogs for inspiration, and i crop out messes like crazy. but lately i’ve felt like my blog was missing something, and that’s what this series is about. i hope you understand i’m not being judgy on either side of this issue… okay, carry on!)
today’s confession is a case of “the cobbler’s children have no shoes.” and see? you even get a grainy sunday morning photo! i’m trying to let go a little with these posts. hehe.
Em has simple ikea curtains in her room, because as much as i love the idea of beautiful handmade curtains, i hate sewing large things with long, straight hems even more. her ikea curtains were floor length, which didn’t work since her bedroom furniture has to overlap the windows a bit. it just annoyed me that they were all bunchy every time i tried to open them.
one day, on a whim, i just cut them with my sewing scissors to get them the right length. i cut them while they were hanging up. this was months ago, and i’ve never bothered to take them down and hem them. i’m sure it would take me less than a half hour to do it…but i don’t.
that’s my confession for today. jagged, unhemmed, cheap-o curtains in Em’s room. got anything to “confess” and care to join me? i’d love to hear it! feel free to comment or link up in the comments. it may be a little embarrassing, but it does feel good…and now i REALLY want to get those darn things hemmed.
have a happy father’s day!
