I even escaped into the sewing room for a few minutes while college football played on the newly-moved TV and made a wee bit of progress on the tiered skirt.
I put my stranger-than-fiction-looking ruffler attachment on that I'd gotten for Christmas a few years ago and forgot about until last week, adjusted it, and ruffled up the bottom tier.
Only I don't think it ruffled up enough. I still have to sew the middle tier, so it'll be a couple of days before I know how close I was/wasn't. Still, the ruffler's a neat, if rather noisy, gadget and if I'd just take the time to learn how to adjust the thing (and the tiered skirts are perfect for that...wish I'd remembered it when I was making DD's) I'm sure it will be a welcome and useful occupant of my gadgets drawer. ;)
Anyone else have potentially useful gadgets in your drawer that you've forgotten, or am I the only one?
