Skirting the issue ...



So ... it's done. The bedskirt is done. I realize that this picture cuts off the fabulous, famous, finials (which, by the way, were voted most likely to be pineapples) and for that I apologize.

Seriously, wouldn't you want to be my guest?

In the way of helpful hints on sewing bedskirts, I offer the following:
HH #1: When sewing the veeerrrrry long hems -- use a "walking foot" as not to end up with a "triangle" at the end where the top fabric got pushed over ... and
HH #2: When gathering for veerrrrryyy long stretches -- use string attached with a large zig-zag stitch. Much easier, faster and stronger to pull on than thread.

In the way of other long stories. PDaddy and I are about to embark on a veeerrrryyy long roadtrip to deliver birthday gifts to our precious Miss Dub. I am hoping to be able to post along the way.

I know Mrs. Dub and I are planning a side trip to Wisconsin. Who knows? Maybe I will have some interesting pictures of cheese.
Any requests?

I guess they are pineapples ...

We'll discuss it all, including your great bedskirt, over a block of pepper jack.

Any chance you want to make me a bed skirt?

Terrific, plan the Wisconsin cheese tour after I make arrangements to come home the day after getting there. Just for that I may sleep in that guest bed while Uncle C and I have the house to ourselves. Might go buy my own non-local pepper jack, too.

But seriously folks, she sews a mean ruffle doesn't she?

personally, I would LOVE to be a guest in that wonderful,cozy looking bed. Good Job! By the way, I could have used those helpful hints a few bed skirts back. Have a safe trip and kiss that Miss Dub for me!
