Happy Saturday Everyone!!!
Off to find my sewing mojo.
First, I would like to THANK ALL OF YOU for the Awesome Compliments on my Wrap sweater. I wore it to work and felt fab in it. Unfortunately, no one was in the mood that morning and just have a mannequin shot. After receiving several suggestions, I pulled out other buckles that I thought would work, but a major problem was the weight of the buckles and went with the first choice, because the buckle was really lightweight and opted for just one. For the strap, I knitted a 4" strap for the buckle and also used snaps to keep the sweater closed.
This is it after being worn for 12 hrs. I didn't wear the blouse pictured, but instead wore the blouse & slacks I initially took the pics in.
Not sure what happened to my camera...uggh.
On another note, this has been a great week for me. I'm not sure I mentioned this, but I have started exercising again and boy-o-boy do I feel good. I jumped off the exercise bandwagon 4 months ago, partly because I had plateaued and secondly, dh thought that a cable line in my mini-gym was the cause of tv problems throughout the house. So what did dh do, he called the cable tech and together they figured that it was definitely the cable line in that room that was the predator. They figured the only way to solve the problem was to put in new cables and with that they proceeded to tear down the ceiling and after doing that realized DUH!!! that it wasn't... both of them total knuckle heads. Like I said although I had plateaued, I would still go down there and do a lil somethin', but with an exposed ceiling, I realized I couldn't focus thinking about spiders and what not and exercising went to the wayside as well as my weight....lol. Now I have a new ceiling....yeah!
For years this room was known as the bunker, we had grandiose ideas about how we would hide in there in the event of a catastrophe. We had boxes of canned goods, bottled water, and all sorts of stuff... just in case, and after considerable thought I was like what the fasneezy and decided to turn it into a mini-gym.
I didn't do much to it but removed all that unnecessary stuff and moved my equipment from the garage into my new space and slapped some mirrors up, added tv and music and it was perfect until that dreadful day, but no more.
Every time I complete a workout I mark the calendar and yesterday I took a good look at my calendar and it has actually been a month since I started exercising again....wooohoo!
This room is known as the One-Butt Gym...lol
I have also started another wrap sweater using cables, I thought it would be another one for me, but ummm, I failed to remember that when adding cables to an uncabled sweater pattern, one must add at least 4 stitches for every cable (if I'm remembering correctly). Well its too small for me even after blocking it. But that's all cool, my dd could use another sweater...haha!
