Well, I found out Saturday afternoon when we went to Hancock's to buy Polyfill for our dress forms that she is also very dedicated to complete strangers in a fabric store.
My friends and family have seen me start up conversations with complete strangers wherever I happen to be. Tammy does it too. We were in line at the cash register at Hancock's to buy our big boxes of Polyfill. There were two other ladies in line.
I began talking to the young lady behind me in line and asked her what she was making. She was talking about a neighborhood "club" of some sort where ladies get together to sew, and she was so excited because they were making a sunglass case, or something simple like that.
She then asked me what was in the big boxes that Tammy and I were buying. Tammy and I both went into a long, hand-signaled demonstration of what we had been doing all morning. The young lady (20-ish) was very interested and so was the cashier. Tammy and I took turns drawing invisible pictures with our hands and arms, and THEN Tammy realized that she had her dress form right outside in the car!
Tammy ran out to her car and grabbed her dress form that she is now calling "Carly" (after Marly at Craftsy) out of her car. She came back into Hancock's and put it on so the cashier and the customer lady could both see it. I, of course, ran out to my car and grabbed by cell phone so I could get PROOF that I didn't make this whole story up!
This is the only way to hug a girl without a head!
Don't ask me how I came up with LaRue. I have no idea!!!
I tore off the waist that Tammy applied to my mystery waistline, and I put this ribbon where I KNOW my waist is.
You can PLAINLY SEE now: High Shoulder, Low Shoulder
High Hip, Low Hip
And below you can see: High Round Back
Flat Butt (or No Butt At ALL!)
Amazing! A perfect fit!
Jerry said he would cut me a board when I get back home, and then I can stand her on a stool for legs. I will buy a higher stool though. I stuffed Pinky a whole bunch more after this pic was taken, You can literally shove stuffing up inside FOREVER!
OH! I keep forgetting to tell you that Tammy DOES NOT SEW! She knits. This is all about knitting for her; and if you are a knitter, maybe it could help you too.
That is the end of the Duck Tape adventure. Please try it if you love to sew as I do -- or, if you knit.
It isn't that hard, and it is REALLY YOU!
