My goodness! WHERE have I been?
I notice I haven't posted on my blog since November 21st. Evidently, nobody has missed me, so it doesn't really matter. Oh, I take that back! Phylly told me she noticed I hadn't been on my blog in several days.
Well, I am in the middle of a new SFD experiment. The first test garment didn't turn out too good, so I started over -- as I always do. The second garment turned out really good! But then I put the skirt together that I made the top to go with, and I decided that I don't even like the skirt.
At first, it was long. I didn't like that.
So I cut off six inches. I didn't like it that way either.
Then it was time to pack everything up and head back to our other house, and that is where I am right now. I had to go work at our store all day today, so my project is on hold.
Maybe tomorrow I will get it all together and can show you what I learned.
Thanksgiving was really nice at my nephew's house in Tulsa, OK. My sister was there, of course. We went to her house the day after TG.
I asked to see all the garments she has made recently, and we went back to her closet for a fashion show of sorts.
WOW! She has made more garments than I have. I was really surprised. She just seems to have a natural "already know how" gene to make things fit.
She had lots of tops in all different colors and prints. One of her tops had the strangest fabric, but it turned out gorgeous. It had fringy strings and fur hanging all over it. She had a non-fringy skirt to go with it. Very impressive!
She doesn't like me to take pictures of her garments because she doesn't want to be copied. I always consider it a great compliment if someone wants to copy what I have done.
I'll be back soon with my new SFD "lesson". I have gotten Glenda Sparling's permission to share it with you. I always ask Glenda before showing you my amateur videos and pictures. Sure-fit Designs is her company. I just have a delightful addiction to it.
When I was at my nephew's house, I talked to his wife's mother, Christine. She is the loveliest person and she belongs to a Book Club. She has read TONS of books. She told me about the latest book they are reading. It is called "Still Alice". I decided to try to find it on my computer.
Turns out there is such a thing as AUDIBLE books, and you can listen to them being read to you.
Probably everyone of you already KNOW this, but I didn't. Anyway, I downloaded the book last night, and I have already listened to two and a half hours of it. It is about early onset Alzheimer's Disease. Sad, sad, sad -- so very sad!
Won't keep you. Be back soon.
