Way Too Much Pink…

This is way too much pink for me, but since teacherninja was man enough to put it on his blog, then I can suck it up.

Thank the person who gave this to you.
• Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
• Link the person who nominated you.
• Name seven things about yourself that no one would really know.
• Nominate ten “Sugar Dolls.”
• Post links to the ten blogs you nominate.
• Leave a comment on each letting them know you nominated them.

Now to the rules above:
Thanks Jim (I think).
The logo is prominently placed above.
The link is in the first sentence.
Seven things that no one would really know about me:
  1. I can’t sleep in complete quiet. I have to have jazz playing (funny, because I don’t listen to it any other time) or a talk radio show.
  2. The people at work know this but, I threaten to punch one of my co-workers in the face at least once a day – even superiors.  It’s my way of showing affection.
  3. I will eat any vegetable except for Brussels Sprouts.
  4. I spend A LOT of time alone – and I like it.
  5. Even though I turn 45 this year and don’t have a husband, boyfriend, or significant other, I still think that I can give birth to a healthy child at some point. Might even be in the tabloids as the oldest US woman to give birth.
  6. My zodiac sign is Cancer, but I hate Cancer men. Jim (see above) is the only Cancer man that I like.  (I’m not pandering, I told this to Brannon just the other day). All others make me want to punch them in the face (see above) and tell them to grow a pair.
  7. I am the friend most likely to break a chain letter.  Which is why I won’t be nominating anyone else! Ha!

If you read this blog and fancy yourself a Sugar Doll, feel free to nominate yourself. 

On The Sewing Front…

Yes, I completed a garment. Yes, it was the easiest top in the world. Yes, it took me a couple months to do it – my mojo disappears as fast as it arrives. No, it doesn’t look good on me – yet. It might when I lose a few more pounds.

Vogue 8581 – Very cute. I will make the long sleeve version later on.

Even though my closet of currently wearable clothes is so empty, I had a couple of bins of items that I really loved that I couldn’t wear anymore. It’s especially hard to let go of things that I made with my very own hands, but I’ve gotten rid of some stuff. One of the dresses that was so hard to let go of was this knit dress. The knit was a cheap dollar bin fabric from Hancock’s with not much give. I lined it with tricot. I made it about 7 years ago and have never worn it, but I love it like I gave birth to it. I released it to my friend Camille, and she looks awesome in it:

It fits her perfectly and with her social life, she will get way more wear out of it than I ever will! (Excuse the wrinkles, it has been in that bin for years!)
