There you have it. You can't sew without taking this step. Well, I can think of a couple things that don't take any real pieces or cutting out, but most of the fun, challenging things I want to make require the layout and the cutting. It's time consuming, tedious and not really fun. And, if your scissors are dull, then multiply that all by 20. So there. It's done now, and tomorrow I can finally start sewing.
Oh, after I cut out the lining.
Does your chosen craft have any step that you hate to do, but have to, so you just grin and bear it? Please share. Misery loves company!
And perhaps I should go get my scissors sharpened...
