Friendly Friday Hello!

Good morning my friends!

I am a happy girl this morning -- well, happier than usual -- because my hubby arrived last night.  We slept in until 7:30 this morning which is super late for him.  He is usually up at 5:00.  He said he really missed me while I was in Des Moines.  That is always good to hear.  (-:

I did not make it to JoAnn's yet, and I can't go today.  We have a funeral to attend at 2:00, and funeral attire isn't really comfortable for shopping a Joann's sale.  I will go tomorrow.

And to answer the question from the lady who thinks there is Brandy in my coffee:

No, just caffeine.  I am just a bubbly (some say "loud", some say "annoying") personality.  That is why I talk to cameras.  They do not care how I act or what I say.  No reaction.  Sometimes, when I talk to people, they look at me funny, and it makes me think I'm ugly or loud or fat or weird, or all of the above, lol.  So I just shut up and suck myself back inside.

Thank you, Helga, for your Christmas advice.  You are SO RIGHT.  My good friend, who also happens to be Jerry's first wife (she introduced us), lost her husband this week.  The funeral is today. This Christmas, she will not have her beloved husband of 40+ years in their home and in her life.  I will have mine.  I can't imagine a more wonderful blessing to celebrate our Lord's birthday for.

Remember the blouse I was making in my last video.  I was able to add the collar I was "seeing in my mind", and I am very pleased with it.  It took some figuring because the collar is a woven and the blouse is a knit, but I was able to do it.

Power Tools suggested I leave it plain, but I already have a lot of plain tops.  I wanted to experiment with something new.





It LOOKS LIKE I have a scarf on, but I don't.  And like most scarves that I remove before leaving the house because they drive me crazy moving around, this one STAYS PUT!

Time to go get ready for my day.

You all have a nice one, and I'll be back to show you how many things FALL into my cart when I go to JoAnn's to look for Terry's patterns.













Hugs, Joy

  1. Joy I think you want the people who follow your blog to be honest so here goes. Just my opinion and not trying to be mean. I think your body shape is too thin and tall to wear this style. The scarf looks great but it is too loose fitting. If it were a lighter fabric it would look better too. The white fabric looks too heavy. OK and as far as your personality, don't change a thing.

    1. Thanks Charlotte! You said that very nicely, and I totally agree. I have a hard time dealing with this "tent on top and paint on the bottom" style. A more drapey fabric looks better for this style. I still like it enough for wearing to Joann's and Walmart though.
      Hugs, Joy

  3. Joy, the time you spent figuring out the collar for your new blouse was well spent. The blouse and you look fabulous.

  4. Hi Joy, I agree with Charlotte that the fabric might be a bit heavy, And I like the scarf look with the white. The colorful collar pops because of the white. Nicely done. And I think the style looks fine on you, aren't you rather tall like 5'6". I'm short 5'3" and can not wear that style at all, I've tried. Can't wait to see what you get at Joann's

  5. I love this outfit, Joy, particularly the scarf effect and would love a few pointers on how you achieved it, if you have time. The tunic is far too nice to wear to Joann's and Walmart!! (Wearing my critical sewists hat; maybe the pattern is too wide on the shoulders, but apart from that, it's great)
