Honestly, what the men and women of America have suffered for our freedom and the right to act as horrible as some Americans act is just shocking and unbelievable. I can't go on, or I will be in tears, and I won't want to show you anything but wounded vets that sacrificed so much and FOR WHAT!? (Referring to the current administration, of course.)
So, WHERE shall I start.
How about the Spider Mum top. Remember it?
I got this fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics, which means it is NICE fabric. I had some fabric left over that I didn't want to waste, and Phylly suggested that I make a scarf with it.
So, I did.
Here, I am modeling all the ways I could think of to wear the scarf. I never can remember very many.
As a BELT:
Just tied in a KNOT:
I finished the black and white outfit and, of course, jewelry to go with it. Not sure if I like the necklace and earrings, or just the earrings.
Here I am in JUST the earrings:
I made another outfit, and this is the one that received the HIGH compliment. Terry came over this morning to tell me about her trip to England, and I was wearing this. Later in the day I mentioned to her that I had just made it to go with my pants.
She said, "Really!?" "I thought you bought that at a store somewhere?"
Now, my mother would have considered that a terrible insult, but I am NOT my mother in about three million ways. I consider that a very nice compliment!
This is my FRINGE blouse. I don't know if you have been out shopping lately, but there is fringe on EVERYTHING, including jewelry. I bought a blouse from Belk that has fringe on the bottom. I decided to make a new Sure-fit Designs blueprint for KNIT fabric, and this is what I came up with:
When I got the blouse out of my closet this morning, I noticed that the OTHER purple pants I made a few weeks ago also match this top perfect. K E W L !!!
Here it is with a rubber band wrapped around inside the blouse. I like it this way too.
And that is all -- except for some jewelry I've made. Let me see if I can find some of that.
Here is a bracelet I made to go with one of the pretty blouses I bought on my shopping spree with Terry.
I love the blouse.
