It is Monday

Can you believe it is Monday again? Well it is almost over as I write this but still they roll around so quickly. It is going to be a very busy week and I took advantage of a couple quiet hours late this afternoon. I made a top for me Christine Jonson's Shirred Top , fabric from Joann's. This is one flattering top and quick, too.

How do you like my picture? The wind was blowing so hard, it knocked my dressform over once. The UPS truck was coming down the road and saw me, I bet it was wondering what this crazy lady was doing!!! This picture makes me smile, very Halloweeny (is that a word?), arms flying in the wind, headless object.

Here is my potholder from Amy Butler's book. The patches are not perfect squares, the pattern piece has curved edges. I didn't want you to think I couldn't cut straight!

Here is the back
Now one last potholder if you can handle it. This is the other one made by the other twin

    I love your new top! I've never tried a Christine Johnson pattern before...

    If I would try to take a picture of my dressform outside, it might become airborne some days! hahahaha.

    That's a pretty top - dancing arms and all.

  4. I love the top. Like Stacy, I've never tried Christine Johnson patterns, but this is making me want to!
