Blinded by the White
"What if you made me a totally white shirt? A white shirt, but with black buttons and black buttonholes? And what if the underside of the collar, the inside band and the insides of the cuffs were tiny black-and-white checks. Could you do that?"
Well, here it is, all finished but the buttons, which I'll sew on tomorrow when I can see straight again. So I guess I could.
Somehow I had no white shirting in stash, but I actually had the tiny black-and-white check (it couldn't be gingham; it had to be check).
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we stash - when totally random requests for tiny black-and-white check come in, we can pull it out of the bin and say, "Is this what you wanted?"
Doesn't that feel good?
