Yay! I finished my Venda skirt. It only took me 3 evenings to get it sewn (what should have been about 3 hours total for a regular, childless person). Here I am checking out the great deals available next week at Fabricville: Dress forms for $200! 5 patterns for $5! Buy 1m fashion fabric get 2 free! You know where I'm going to be on April 4th.
I love that the stripe ended up on the hem, which meant that I could sew very carefully in the 1mm white stripe on my machine. No hand hemming! Yes!
Here's a "Sewing Scientist in Action Shot": me and a colleague running our assay on the High Throughput robot today, hoping to get a drug lead from our natural compound fraction library. We have been waiting weeks to get our hands on this robot. Nerdgasm.
