It's A Sewing Dilemma......

Happy Tuesday sweet girlies!

I've been up to my eyeballs trying to finish my curtains for my den......I know...........you're rolling your eyes and saying "FINALLY"!

I ran into a smidge of a problem last night and I swear, I cannot figure it out.  

I made a pleated ruffle for the edge of the little curtain.

Sewed it on....


Time to sew the other one on.

Hmmmmm........not so perfect.

The stinking ruffle is upside down.

No problem, unpick it and turn it around.

That DID not work either.

I'm confused.  Of course, it doesn't take much to confuse this old gal.    :-)

It just did not make any sense.

I'm going to look at it again this morning.

Hopefully I'll see the light.

I know most of you know my sweet little friend Sheila over at

Oh what a dear and wonderful girlie she is and I know you love her too!

She's having a bit of an OVERWHELM problem right now....

and, has asked for prayer.
I love you bloggie girlies and I know you'll be happy to pray for this sweet chickie!

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

  5. Hmm...those darn ruffles are tricky! Sheila is certainly a sweetheart, I need to go see whats up.

  6. Oh how I hate to pick out stitches. I'd rather be run over by a truck!LOL

    Good luck with the ruffles. They can be trying.
