Killed another keyboard. sigh. It's my own fault, just unexpected. I didn't realize there was some water in the little plate I had grape tomatoes on and tipped it so the water went on the keyboard. The keyboard worked fine last night, but it's... all funny this morning. Some keys give me two letters, some give me none at all. Alas.

Finally finished hemming the OMG! Yellow! T-tunic-style dress I made to go under the butterfly corset. Guess I should try the whole thing for effect, huh? I am trying to decide if I really want to put some cool embroidery (I read embroidery books and drool, but never think of things to DO the embroidery on) in bright blue. It would be lurid against the orange yellow, but would be another tie between the corset and the dress.

I should have taken at least one pair of slacks to sewing meet up last night so a second person could mark the hem, but I was in a hurry (late at work) and failed that roll. But I think I have a nice length marked on one pair by trial and error. I will just give a deep hem and adjust as needed.

The pair of slacks with a lining... that's going to be fun, oh yes.

If you want to try a decorative stitch along the hem of the tunic, you know whom to call, yes?

Oooo, very, very true! I think I will hand-stitch something around the neck and, if that looks good, come asking for some time on your machine.

I am a fan of BRIGHT! embroidery on BRIGHT! fabric. And if you do something simple and have a big enough hoop, it shouldn't take all that long at all.

You might be able to save the keyboard, get it really warm by putting it outside a while. Bascially you have to get it dry-dry.

Some electronics misbehave from water and are OK when water dries. Some are just FUBAR. I think keyboards are in the first category.
