As our preacher always says, "Ignorance" is curable; "stupidity" is not.
So I am officially CURED of this one thing, at least, thanks to my friend, Glenda. I really can't believe that my lightning fast brain didn't SEE the little movie icon right next to the picture icon at the top of the blog page I write this on every day. And NOW, I am wondering what that other little icon next to it does -- the one that looks like a piece of paper torn in half. It says "Insert Jump Break". OHHHHHHHHHH! I bet I know what it is. I'm supposed to take a break and go jump on my trampoline!
And WHAT am I blabbering about here? The fact that I can put a You Tube video right here -- right on this page -- without copying a link for you.
NOTE: I DELETED THE VIDEO HERE BECAUSE I SEEM TO HAVE SUDDENLY USED UP MY PICTURE QUOTA. PERHAPS, THE VIDEO LINK SAVES ROOM. I NEED TO DO SOME RESEARCH. PLEASE ADVISE IF YOU HAVE ANY INFO ON THIS.
And other than that very valuable lesson today, I have been working on my FIRST cowl-neck top by using Sure-fit Designs Beyond Bodice Basics booklet. Here is a picture of what I have SO FAR. The sleeves are not in -- the hem is not in -- and I may, or may not, put the back waist darts in. I am trying the new belt Santa gave me for Christmas to see if I should keep it or return it. I think I like it. I may make a denim dress to wear under it.
GLENDA: How do I get that fold between my formerly-a-lot-bigger boobs to go away??? When I try on cowl necks in the stores, this fold is always there, and I don't like it. Would it go away if I removed that first bust dart transfer to center front and just did away with it? I really like the rest of the cowl. OR, do I need a BIGGER dart there?
That's it for today. I need to cut out the sleeves for this and decide what dietary delight I am going to fix myself for dinner out of 3 thawed out chicken breasts.
I MAY -- just MAY -- have a surprise for you tomorrow. Don't hold your breath. We'll see if it really happens. I MAY get a visit from my great grandchild, Jourdyn. I have only seen her for 3 hours of her little life, and that was at least 4 months ago. I have formula, a bottle and diapers JIC! Of course, the tiny newborn size diapers I have may not fit around her foot, never mind her bottom.
