Machines off, dust covers on (oops hang on a sec - ok now they're on) machines unplugged, presser feet hidden (I have a six year old with a passion for machinery and hands-on involvement) - two outfits laid out nicely on the back of the couch.
What took the longest? Altering B's pants because I thought he needed more "rise" and so I gave him more and he put them on and said "I don't like puffy!!" And indeed, they were puffy, and the fiddling began.
Also the nifty-neato, surprising cheap iron-on Austrian crystal decal - it took an inordinately long time for me to figure out "let cool for 2 minutes" meant "let cool for 2 minutes" and that any peek I snuck ahead of time just to see if it really worked was ripping the crystals off because the glue hadn't dried. And really - it doesn't take boatloads of patience to wait TWO MINUTES.
And now I'm going to bed while it's still today.
