SO! You want to see what I've been doing. I had to scroll down-down-down in my own blog to see what I haven't shown you. I figure you all are sick of me showing you every thing I do every day, but maybe you aren't.
I didn't show you my very first RING. My hands are not pretty anymore, so I don't really like to wear rings, but I wanted to try to make one. It was lots of fun. Sorry pics are fuzzy. Really hard to photograph jewelry.
GOOD HEAVENS! Is that HAIR on my finger??? I guess I should be plucking my fingers as well as my eyebrows!
I made this knit top yesterday just PLAYING with Sure-fit Designs. I wanted to make a style because it is so much fun. Not too fun if it doesn't turn out though. This is drawn to be made with a WOVEN, but this fabric was just lying on the chair, and it was TWO-sided. All one fabric. HOW COOL! It was big all over. I took the underarm seams in over an inch, and my bra is still showing.
This is the back.
The stripes look like they are MOVING! Too big in the waist.
And here is the blouse that has the CORRECTED SHOULDER CAP. I KNOW I made a video of how to fix the cap. Maybe I didn't post it in my blog.
JUST IN CASE, here is the video. From the look on my face it must be VERY exciting!!!
I am showing you a close-up of the buttons. In the center of each button, there are three seed beads like are in the bracelet below. Really cute, and they are washable and dryable.
The pants are the Burda pattern. The top is my own Sure-fit Designs creation with 8 pleats. I really like it, and the new sleeve cap height is AWESOME! So comfortable, I still have it on. I am usually in my jammies by now.
I made this from start to finish ALL BY MYSELF with no directions. It felt SO GOOD! Jerry was very impressed. He said I should start my own clothing/jewelry line. I think I already did, only it is just for me.
I absolutely love this purse because it is purple. I was really surprised to see when I hung my wet blouse up to dry, that it matches my purse EXACTLY! NOTE: Blouse is WET!
Did I show you these cute hearts I made for Valentine's Day? I love them.
And did I show you these????
My daughter, Tammy, asked me to make her some stitch markers. I had NO IDEA what one even was, but thanks to the internet, I was able to whip up a batch in no time. I hope they are working for her.
Back to the drawing board on the assymmetrical v-neck tomorrow, and Terri is coming over for some embroidery.
OH, OH, OH!!!!!
I almost forgot to show you.
When Terri asked me to embroider some initials on a pillow for her, I remembered that my embroidery machine had just gotten back from the repair shop not long ago, and I had not used it yet. So, I took off its cover and decided to embroider something to wear with my new Size 12 jeans that are all odd colors I don't have anything to match. My friends may get VERY SICK of me wearing the same tee shirt with all my jeans, lol! I better get busy making some more.
I really have to go. My hubby hasn't fixed his shake yet, so I have to go down to make sure he eats. He drinks Ensure and fruit for his shakes. I'm still doing Herbalife.
Be back soon.
