Topic: October 2005
After multiple naps and lots of relaxing; I'm feeling better.
I even sewed a bit this weekend. I had some orange and turquoise onionskin that I made up 2 tops with. One for me and one for my sister. I just love this pattern ruffle top by Christine Jonson, it is so easy and with onion skin it doesn't even need to be hemed, but I did a 3 thread rolled edge on the sleeves and bottom hem, leaving the ruffle raw. It is really cute and no gaposis in the neckline. Although I'm not as modest as I used to be since all this cancer, chemo crap. My thinking now, is if you got it, show it off, because it doesn't last long. So, if my top gaps and you get a glimps of my bra or a little extra clevage (yea, like I ever had that!), who cares! Just no thongs out the back, that is major fashion faux paux! So, ladies, bat those eye lashes, swing that hair, push up those breasts... tomorrow's another day and who knows what's in store.
Speaking of lashes, I don't know why I'm still trying to apply mascara in the morning (habit?), most of my lashes are gone, and then I got these teenie, tiny, little growths that I'm trying to apply mascara to, and all I do is make a mess all over my lids. I should just put on the pencil liner and be done with it.
I always had really long lashes and took them for granted; I can't wait for them to grow back, so I can bat my eyes.
Oh, it's Halloween, I was trying to find a long black coat or something, I thought I could dress up as Uncle Fester. Long Black coat, bald head, and dark rings around my eyes: don't need much for that except to wash my face and put on the coat. I think I could scare the kids with that look. Maybe I can find one by tonite.
