I recently decided to run a comparison test between Mettler thread and Gutterman.

I went into it with a set of preconceived notions, all of which turned out to be false.

I expected the Mettler to be better thread. Less linty and better quality.
It wasn't.

The Gutterman thread shed a LOT less and broke far less often.

And it's cheaper!
This dress is finished and going up on the etsy shop :)

Too much

There's just too much gibberish out there.
It makes me want to become a hermit.
But, then again, I'd still have to deal with other people, I just wouldn't be aware of the current mores.

I'm tired of idiots pushing their particular religious beliefs as law.
Or rather, the fraction of their religious beliefs that lets them persecute a minority group.

The Old Testament condemns homosexuality?

It also condemns BACON.

and shrimp.

and denim.

It's kind of funny

Each time I start a project I always am assailed by self doubt and fear.
I worry that I just can't do it, that I am not good enough at sewing.
Or that the idea itself is stupid and flawed and I should just not waste time on it.

Which can all together be quite paralyzing.

Someday, I will be better than that.
Someday I won't tear open my own wounds and I will accept my skills as what they are.

But for now..
I just keep plodding forward!

Starting up

So, I'm making more doll outfits
I'm going to do, I think, a series of maid dresses.
Possibly for sale on etsy, I haven't decided.

This is just my personal opinion based on the varieties of them I've used thus far, but I'd have to say that the two best 'regular' brands I've used are Wiss, and the all metal Ginghers. 
They are well made and hold an edge better.
The problem with plastic framed scissors is the same as plastic sewing machines, a lack of rigidity and an ease of warping.

It seems like

In the few months I've been semi inactive, they have decided to increase the difficulty inherent in posting on these pages...
Logging in just became a much more treacherous procedure....

I've been busy with the kiddo, and I'm enjoying that more than I would have dreamed. 
It might have something to do with the fact that he's adorable.
