In which I find way more to talk about than I planned... but what else is new? Some holiday cookies, some secret projects, some garment construction... this video has it all! Well at least I mention it all, lol.

The cookies look yummy! I'll be baking a few dozen tomorrow.

You can show us what you're working on. We won't tell Jennifer - promise!

The blouses have to be homemade, but they will let someone wear an unfinished blouse? I do not understand that logic - or lack of.

They have to be not store-bought. But yeah, that was my thinking. I guess if it's safety pinned and tucked in they figure no one would notice? Maybe no one ever wore this one, all I know is I'm definitely not.

Also, I think I have overdosed on cookies. Ugh. I'm going to need a vacation to do a detox from all this junk I've been eating!

Holy cow, that shirt...O_o What the what? Someone actually wore that to perform in?? Urgh, I always hated having to make part of a costume or getting someone to do it...it's not like there aren't plenty of places you can order basic blouses/shirts/t-shirts in different sizes and colors.

You must be quite talented to be doing solos while playing guitar! Post a video if one's made. :)

Have a great Christmas with the family!

I don't know anyone local to play for me that I would ask to commit to 3 different performance dates plus rehearsals, so my nephew recorded a lovely backing track for me but they don't allow recorded accompaniment. Soooo long story short (too late!), my brother transposed the key into and reduced the number of chords for me and convinced me to drag my dusty sad abandoned guitar out of my closet where it's been hiding for 10-15+ years unplayed. So now I am trying my best to get my callouses built up on my fingertips because OW! I hate accompanying myself, but at least it will give me something to do with my hands while I sing.

Also I know! Heck the LL Bean catalog, haband, whatever. There is bound to be somewhere where we could have just ordered each season for any new people that come along. Sheesh. I haven't given up on the idea of buying a shirt yet. My vacation starts Thursday and I am still on the prowl to avoid making one.

Merry Christmas!

Why don't you live next to me? (Because: cookies.)

Nice to have a place to store all the sewing machine stuff, isn't it? I've got all mine in various different pouches and then have to remember which one has which stuff :D

Weird about the shirt! Bizarre that there's no fastenings or anything. Crazy. Hopefully you'll find a match for the fabric somewhere :D

Merry xmas to you too! I would LOVE to be your neighbor because QUITLY FANDOM NEIGHBOR! :D
I think it was a really cute way to package the gift card. ANd who can't use a place to store your stuff. I had been keeping it in little plasdtic open bins, but this way I won't lose it or knock it over or whatever.

That shirt is so weird. And when I mentioned why I wanted the purple fabric because of the other being stained I just got looked at weird (it's probably just the fabric fading). Um, no, I know the difference between light fade and a STAIN. Ahem. I'll happily return it so someone else can use it. I just hate sewing clothes from patterns. I get dyslexic with written directions. I really hope I just find one already made.

*in my best Cookie Monster voice*

Coooookies!!! I love cake mix short cuts!

That shirt, what a mystery! While you were talking about it I couldn't help but wonder if they spilled while making it and never wore it, or wore it unfinished and then spilled. Either way, I agree, starting from scratch seems like the way to go! I suspect once you get started, you'll have your new top finished in no time.

Yay for IWTB!!! ♥

Edited to add: LOVE the new sewing box for your Kenmore. Great idea!

I may check the main goodwill tomorrow, I haven't hit there yet or Kohls, and I'm checking in both the men's and women's shirt departments. but likely I will end up buying a pattern this weekend and diving in early next week. I want to get it done. I have quilts to quilt on my vacation!
