3:00 PM - Begin assembling paper print-out pattern piece with a cup of Earl Grey at my side.
3:03 - Decide music will improve sewing experience. Turn on bad dance jams courtesy HitKast@accuradio.com.
3:10 - Go test Little Red's new catalytic converter that my poor daddy spent a day and a half putting on.
3:22 - Realize I should tweet this on my new Twitter account. Spend several minutes trying to figure out the technicalities of tagging? @ing? Victory Patterns.
3:26 - Realize I also need to tell my associate in fashion and crime, Anna, about the sewing meetup in NYC Lladybird is planning.
3:36 - Take Little Red for a test drive to double check placement of catalytic converter. It was too tight before and it sounded like I was driving a hot rod. So of course I was inspired to drive as though I were driving a hot rod, which is never smart. But the vibrations meant I now had a massage seat!
3:45 - Resume pattern assembly and zen contemplation of sewing.
4:16 - Cheez-it break and goodbyes to my sister (her college winter break is over).
4:20 - Dance break because Gangnam Style has come on and I've run out of tape. Find another roll leftover from Christmas with barely enough to finish.
4:24 - Assembly completed, time to CUT THAT FABRIC. And people wonder why it takes me so long to sew anything. Geez.
