Some of you may not know about Heath. He is the BEST waiter in the world, and Phylly and I go to Olive Garden a lot and specifically ask for him to wait on us.
I asked him if I could take a picture of him today, and he was happy to let me. Actually, Phylly took a picture of both Heath and I -- and it would have been SO GOOD because he had his arm around me and I was fussing with his tie -- but she must have had a seizure or something while holding my cell phone because the picture is so blurred, we look like monsters.
Heath looks like he has a sunburn because he DOES HAVE A SUNBURN. He goes to a tanning booth. I've tried to tell him how dangerous they are, but he doesn't agree. He grew up in Florida, and he likes to have a tan. A tan is one thing -- a burn is DANGEROUS! Next time Jerry comes with us to lunch, I will show him all of Jerry's skin cancer scars.
Heath has also LOST 100 POUNDS! He carries a picture in his wallet of what he looked like with the extra 100 pounds. He is one of the reasons I decided I should be able to lose 10 pounds. I can't even imagine losing 100!
You saw the UGLY camisole I made a couple days ago. You know me -- I will do it over and over and over until I get it right. Fortunately, the THIRD time turned out pretty nice. I now am on the fourth camisole, but it is a different design.
Cami #2 turned out VERY bad. It resides in the garbage can. I used a really lightweight knit for it, and it would not behave at all. When I sewed the elastic to the back of it, the whole back just stayed stretched out and hung down my back like the letter "U". I could have jumped rope with it.
I did you a favor and photographed this cami on Blueberry (that's what I call the dressform I bought at Hancock's that looks like a Smurf) since this one looks more like underwear than the one I posed in the other day. Blueberry hasn't lost any weight either, so the cami is too small around for her. It doesn't have all those folds on the bottom when I wear it.
OH! By the time I got to this one, I decided to put a casing at the top of the back INSTEAD of sewing the elastic with a zigzag directly to it. MUCH, MUCH better! Much easier to fit because you can just pull the elastic tighter if you need to.
Tomorrow, I am going to cut out a different camisole pattern in dark purple satin. I sure hope it turns out. At the rate I'm going, I should have a different camisole to wear each day of the 3-day class in Tulsa with Louise Cutting.
