He just couldn't make his tail do anything productive. It just lay there.
So it only took a couple of hours to finish the blouse and I eagerly looked forward to trying it on. This is what happened. I couldn't wait so I tried it on before I put on the sleeves. This was a BIG mistake. After I did, I didn't want to finish. It's true. I suddenly hated the red blouse.
Twenty-four hours later, I did put the sleeves on, but I refused to hem them or do the buttons. Here are photos.
Starting to hem, before Zeke arrived to help.
The front sans buttons. The color in the photo above is more true in color.
Can you guess why I hate the red blouse? No, it's not the weird color changes. No, Zeke didn't harm it in anyway. It doesn't fit. There. I said it. I'm keeping it because there is a possibility than it might someday.
Lest you think I took all this time with nothing more than a nearly finished red blouse, here is something else that turned out better.
Sleep-over Satchel for Pam
(see post here ) That one is the story of The Monkey on the branch.
Yesterday I also finished some knitting so tune in tomorrow for a look at that.
What's next you might well ask? I'm making another Sleep-over Satchel, this time for my daughter-in-law. Sh-h-h, her birthday is next month. I'll be sharing pictures then.
Thank you for hanging in with me. I hope to be posting more often as the challenge is taking off.
Ciao! (Did I mention I also study Italian?)
