Well, the duster is pinned out and cut out (with some help from Jeff, thank you dear) but I forgot that I don't have the right color thread. Whoops. After being out of the house much of yesterday, I'm not inclined to go out today, so we're going to go get thread on Wednesday afternoon when we both have to be out for work, and I'll run it up Wednesday afternoon.
It's all going to get done. The light at the end of the semster is NOT a train waiting to hit me. This is so cool. :)
