DH's short sleeve camo tee
Of course I muffed half of the day away trying to set DH's computer up to where he could go to Ebay, (he looks there for all kind of parts and gets a lowdown on prices) But, with all the meanness in the world I had a really hard time working on it. Things had changed a LOT since I had set up my account several years ago. When I put our bank in for the payments -it say our bank needed research and could not be used and here I have been using it for years. Things just do not make good sense lately. Last night I had attempted to install a virus protection and just could not get it to do what it was suppose to and then today it installed perfectly? Makes you really "scratch your head"?????? I wish I could have got E-bay to co-operate today because he is watching a chainsaw part. Jeepers!
Remember the long sleeve t-shirt I had made night before last for DH ? Well, I did some figuring today when my brain came back to visit and decided the sleeves were just a mile too long. So, I cut them off and changed the cuffs out to a piece of dark green knit ,which was so much softer and laid better.
Then I jumped on this short sleeve version , which older son had said it was just too thin and even a girlfriend said it was not worth wasting my time on because even if I got it to sew -then the project would just wear out too quickly. But- you know how stubborn I am and I paid good money for the fabric -so there . : )
I started off on the wrong foot and had a disagreement with that V-neck! I had to rip the first try completely out, but I took a small break and when I came back and tried once again - it went just right, so that made me so happy. I hope this can be something he can either wear in the summer -OR- maybe for hunting in the spring
when he always says his winter hunting clothes are too hot- I don't think I will have to worry about him being TOO HOT in this fabric. LOL
Boy! I have had a creak in my neck for the last 3 days and it hurts like crazy. Today I took a small heating pad that a friend from Tenn. had made for me 3 years ago. It is just a small -hand size - little pocket filled with rice that you stick in the microwave to heat and since it is small it fits right on that curve in your neck. I think it has been more comfort than a pain pill. I think I better go heat it one more time. AWWWWHHHH! That's better.:)
These days are just flying by so I guess I better hop off and see what other kinds of trouble I can get into.I hope you guys are having good luck with your Christmas gifts.
