This turned out to be the best shot of the top. Me with the "sleepy eyes" as Naiobi said.
I like the style of this blouse. I really like the fabric, Rayon/Spandex jersey. But I HATED sewing it. It is SO stretchy. Not only that, my serger really needs a tune up. I'm going to clean it tonight since that seemed to help it run smoothly for awhile. No, I do not clean my serger after each use even though I've read that I should.
I'm certain I've mentioned before how I can't ever make anything without at least having to tear out 1 seam? Yes, even on the simplest of things, like a pillowcase, I will do something wrong. I think I just jinx myself. This time it was the crossover. It looked fine when I was pinning it. Wrong side out. Yes, I should be able to see the full panel I thought. I serged it together, and once it was right side out, well. Take a look.
Grrrrr. Anyway, the top is REALLY comfy. And I discovered that if I wear a tank top underneath I don't look so lumpy. Good solution until I get in shape.
And I need a big pot. Where does one find a good one that doesn't cost $100? The only place I thought to look was Macy's and they only had 1 and it was $100 and I didn't like it all that much. II headed to Marshall's where they only had small ones. This is what it looks like when I make Chicken Soup. (By the way, I followed this recipe from Rosy Little Things and it's fantastic! First time ever using/trying/tasting parsnips. They're like an offspring of a carrot and a potato.) See how nothing fits? So I cook it for a while, then I have to go back and flip the bird (ha!) and mix the veggies around so that everything gets cooked. I used to make it in 2 pots but the ex took the other pot.
I think I need about a 12 qt one, maybe even a little bigger for when my sister comes over. And I don't like non-stick pots. And I don't like the cheap aluminum ones they sell at the market to steam your tamales either. I want a good one, but don't want to pay $100. Maybe not possible. Suggestions?
