I really should be outside PLAYING. It is so pretty out there today. I have the air conditioner on in my sewing room.
The problem with me being out in the sunshine is that my dyed hair wants to turn orange. I HATE that! My hair is supposed to be dark brown, but it hardly is ever that color these days. I dye it brown, and it turns the color of straw or orange. I'll be glad when I have all white hair, like my Mom. She has the PRETTIEST hair! Of course, she has about 10 times more hair than I do.
Actually, I take that back on the all-white hair. Please, God! I didn't mean it! I feel like an antique as it is. Every time I download a picture of myself, I have another chin.
Isn't it weird though how the genes get spread around in a family? There are four of us kids. Three girls and one boy. We have FOUR different kinds of hair.
Judy has thin, curly hair.
I have thin, super-straight-as-a-poker hair!
Janice has extremely thick straight hair that feels like wire. She has to have it thinned out!
My brother has super thick, curly hair.
If you would throw all of those hair genes in a big bowl -- stir them up real good -- and put 1/4th on each of our heads, I bet it would be PERFECT!!!
I don't know how I get off on these subjects. Things just pop into my head.
I finished my rooster blouse today. Here is a picture of it all finished. It is in the washing machine right now having all the marks dissolved -- I hope!!! I actually made a Silhouette pattern and am keeping two blouses from it! I think once you understand Peggy Sager's "special" way of thinking, you can use the patterns with success.
And I probably should tell you this. I was listening to an old video of hers earlier today because I can't get the replay from last night, and she was talking about buttonholes. She said she CRINGES whenever she sees buttonholes going the wrong way on women's blouses.
Since her buttonholes are always drawn vertically -- and I always sew mine horizontally -- I decided I must be breaking the law of buttonholes.
Therefore, I put the buttonholes in this blouse vertically. Guess I will have to throw away all those other blouses so I don't get arrested by the Buttonhole Police!
I better quit. Need to clean up the huge mess in my sewing room AFTER I do do some exercises.
