Well Bust My Britches!
I have been working on this for the past week , in between playing with the dolls. DH's shoulders are very narrow and anything I use on a store bought pattern just falls off of him so I sat down and drew out a new pattern -more to his body structure. I really narrowed the shoulders and I went with a V-neck line because he is Always pulling on the regular neckline and stretching his shirts out of shape.
When I saw this picture was a flunk- I ran to get my camera and do it again - only to discover that since I had given it to him and it was on him and he was gone to play "guns" with his brother and his grandson. So, I will try to catch my shirt again - once it comes to a rest somewhere. LOL
I am curious to find out what he thinks of the shirt after he gets it "broke in! I can already tell that I will have to lengthen it because his tummy is peeking out . But , it is a good experiment for the first shot at it. : )
It has been a beautiful day-I hate to see it leave. I have got a lot of work caught up , although it does not look like it. Somethings are the hardest to keep up with and they tend to be the things that "others" never notice.
I had a wonderful salad today-actually two of them, because I went to the garden and over the last 2 days all of my cucumber vines have fallen over dead-so I grabbed the cucumbers (now that I could see them) and I grabbed a few tomatoes (their plants are dead too) and I intended to enjoy these last feasts -YUM! I also have a scrub apple tree that they used to graft a crab apple tree onto. I never could keep the tree up straight -it continually fell over -so then the crab apple took off growing and the other apple part went the other way.So I have crab apples and also some kind of little scrubby apples -BUT - the scrubby apple is SOOOO good. So I grabbed 3 and diced them up in the salad and it is the best salad I have ever sank my choppers into!
And by next month I will tackle the crap apples and turn it into the most beautiful RED jelly ! YUM!
I hope you all have had a wonderful day! : )
