Wearing What I Sew
Gaylen asked me if I was going to participate in this. Well, since she gamely participated in the "Meme" tag, I tried to take pictures of me every day. I missed one or 2.
It was hot here all week, so I wore summer clothing all week. Three things to remember when viewing my wardrobe: first, I have not purchased a garment for myself (except undergarments and shoes) since 2002. Second, I work from home, so I wear what's comfortable. Finally, hubby works from home, too, and he likes me in short skirts. So all of my skirts are short. Whatever makes him happy is fine with me!
Monday, turquoise cotton knit tank top and a-line skirt in navy with a little white pattern.
Tuesday, Cassandra's birthday, pink floral sundress which I made for Shannon's graduation, and then discovered that it was snowing in Laramie. In May. I'm still not over that!
Wednesday, fuschia cotton knit tank top and ivory rayon a-line skirt.
Thursday's picture is lost, but it was a yellow and blue full circle skirt with one of my memorial day tops (the one with the little fluffy sleeves). Don't ask how one loses an electronic photo. It's another of life's great mysteries.
Friday, yellow sundress made for Kellie's graduation (photos to follow, probably tomorrow).
Saturday, I had a screaming headache and chills all day long! So I wore a maroon knit long sleeved dress. I'm decapitated for unknown reason, probably because my hair was bad or my eyes were going in 3 different directions.
Today is a pink tee with pink skirt, but the kids are out with my camera. Sorry, no photo this time.
All of these clothes came out of my sewing machine. I didn't realize just how rare people who sew are until the little boys next door were here one day, and the younger one spotted me at the sewing machine. He watched me for a while, and then asked, "Is that a shirt?" I responded affirmatively. What was I doing with it? I'm sewing it. To which he queried, "Why? What was wrong with it?" Ah, I love little kids. You never know what's coming from them next.
