Well, THAT sure is maddening!
I just typed 3 very long paragraphs, and they flew off into space. I don't want to tell you that all over again either, so I won't.
I'll just say all is well at work, and I even had time to sew today. I left work at 3 PM and came home to make my zillionth SFD muslin. I now have one in about 6 different sizes. My bust measures 40 one day -- 41 the next -- and 42 the next -- and then back to 40. It was even 39 once. WHAT is with that???
Not only that, my shoulders suddenly measure 16" across the back, and they have always been 15" before. Does some secret body-changing hormone creep into your bloodstream when you are nearly 63 years old?
Today, my bust measures 42" and it feels like it could explode any minute. Hold on, please, while I disconnect the harness...................Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, yesssssssssssss. That feels a whole lot better.
And NO, I have not gained weight. I am still 148 instead of 158. Doesn't make sense. I am still on my DESM diet which I suppose I should just call my "Forever" diet now.
I wanted to watch Peggy Sagers show everyone how to fit pants last night, but they have not gotten the computer/video problems encountered from last week fixed yet. I sure hope they get that all fixed. I'm spoiled with all the free videos. I watch some of them over and over.
I watched one while I was making my new SFD blueprint this afternoon. It was the one where she says pattern makers who put darts coming from the armhole don't have a clue what they are doing. That could be a tiny hint as to why Louise Cutting doesn't care for her!
For you beginner sewers -- pardon me, I guess the term is "sewists" these days so the name doesn't sound the same as something requiring a plumber -- that have recently subscribed to my You Tube videos, you may want to check out www.silhouettepatterns.com. LOTS of free videos you can watch.
In MY opinion, Peggy is NOT a good teacher, although she THINKS she is. She is all over the place and is never well-prepared. You have to have a good imagination. STILL, you can learn a lot by watching her videos, and they are my favorite price: FREE! Her intent is to help us understand pattern making so we won't be so terrified to change our patterns so they will fit. A WONDERFUL goal.
Also, if you go to www.nancyzieman.com you can find a link to all of her PBS programs. There are two VERY GOOD videos on how to sew with knits. She is the nicest person. I watched her 30-year anniversary videos, and I "met" her husband and her children. Such a nice family.
I'm headin' to my bedroom to climb into my jammies. Then it is upstairs to ride the Ellyptical for a few minutes. If I do it more than a few minutes, I will collapse! I was at the other house for 8 weeks, and my legs haven't caught back up with what I used to do here yet.
Until soon, enjoy Spring and keep in touch!
