I feel like I have slain the dragon. Well, not the one in the picture. That is one that I made of polymer clay for a friend who collects dragons.
Here is the story of my dragon. I am talking about one of those things that you avoid in your sewing or crafting because it seems like a dragon that will kill you.
Hereby begins my tale:
I have a pair of very nice dress pants that I had worn less than a dozen times. They fit well and look good on me. The zipper BROKE a few weeks back (on Sunday, in church of course!) I put them in the "mending" pile and actually bought a new zipper. Ha! A couple of days ago I started ripping out the broken zipper...my anxiety started to rise. I thought "maybe I should just throw them out." I left them laying and went to something else.
Then on Monday evening I came in and started on them again. I got the zipper out - and other than a few "special words" as I stuck myself on the pins I used (those flower head pins are thin and SHARP) I didn't have a great deal of problems getting the zipper in. I put them on and checked to see that it lays okay. YES! All that remained was to re-sew a few seams that had to come out to make way for the zipper. I did it! I have slain the dragon!!!!
