someone (oops can't remember
who) made a comment about me
really loving my lace!
But you know your taste
changes often and this is a change
that came to me just a couple
And adorable dress.
However....I do not wear sleeveless
clothes unless just hanging at the house.
WHY? OLD FLABBY SKIN, plus
the added sag that goes with losing
70 lbs and then scars on my upper
arms and shoulders.
What? What is that about...
well, apparently in my sleep sometimes
stress comes out with me scratching
at my upper arms and shoulders,
oh and upper back.
This goes back years!
The pic below is
Cruise with sis in law Lori.
I had been through some
term oil in my life that yr
and add lost 30 lbs. Still
over weight but I bought this
skirt for my cruise.
I loved it. Although it has
it has layers.
I still have this skirt and
instead of buying a HOBO
type outfit for my
nieces wedding I
have decided to wear this.
I try to match outfits to
the theme color of the
wedding but I don't
own a sage green, blush
or lavender skirt HOBOish
so cream will work
just perfect. I will
need to locate some
sandals and a top. This
top I recently gave up cause
it was TOO BIG.... :)
Saturday I went to the Quiltcon
Here are just a few samples today.
I am not a quilter so I am not sure
about terms or whatever but the
below quilt add the stitch that is done
to attach the backing to the quilted piece
is so tight in being close together. I realized
then that you can use that backing stitch
in so many different forms.
These are contest quilts and I am guessing
that the quilter had to use certain colors.
I was drawn to the PURPLE in all of them.
Will share more later. I was
amazed. Being an artist I looked at
these quilts as Works of ART.
I however, not being a quilter was
taken back at the work that goes
into these quilts.
These next two pics were taking
yesterday in mom's yard.
