June 30th doesn't end until midnight, right?

Here is where I stand...



June 30th doesn't end until midnight right? So technically I can come home tomorrow, finish up the jacket, take some pictures and submit it all before 11:59 pm...or am I pushing it too close?

Well...I'm committed now and I can almost see the finish line...so this is what's left on the jacket...

1. Hem the sleeves - then sew the tab and button on.
2. Finish pressing the hem up, add hem tape and stitch it down.
3. Make buttonholes and sew buttons on.
4. Insert shoulder pads
5. Give it another good pressing

I can finish all of that by midnight tomorrow night, right? And if I don't I guess you guys will be the first to know...but....I....am....not....quitting....yet! *LOL*



One more pic for the road...and I would be absolutely, positively NO-GOOD on Project Runway...I am not at my best under pressure...

taking my tired behind to bed...

  3. The jacket looks great, you can finish it and get pictures. BTW, is it midnight Eastern time or another time zone? You might get an extra hour or two!

  7. You can do it! You HAVE to do it ... this JCC is looking so great!

    Hope you don't have to work late today, that the traffic flows without any hiccups, and that have enough energy left to finish the jacket.

  8. *LOL* Bonnie for a fleeting second I did...however, my boss is on vacation and one of us has to be in the office...so I am settling for leaving work early - at 5pm! *LOL*

    It will give me an extra hour and a half that hopefully I will put to good use!

  10. I think I read on the JCC thread on SG that the pictures can be submitted *later* just the sewing should be completed by midnight. :) Love your wardrobe - if anyone can get it completed, YOU CAN!

  13. I think you need a 3.00pm migraine that will necessitate you leaving work early! Good luck. I finished at 11.00 so you can do it too!!

  15. I know you shouldn't be on line while you're rushing to beat the deadline, but....how is it going? I can't wait! This is BETTER than Project Runway, the suspense!
    New idea: little tub of cool water with fizzy tablets in it under the home desk to pamper my toesies!! This is great! Of course, I can't get up to take a break in the sewing room, either...

  16. Wow, saw your posts only today and didn't get a chance to cheer you up! I hope you did it, Carolyn, cause what you have there looks really gorgeous to me! Lovely colours, great shapes and I absolutely adore the piping on the jacket.
