I have no clue as to what week we are in. I do know it always seems the YoP goes faster after Christmas is over and all those hand made gifts are done and out the door.
This week was wild. I worked on my sweater a bit. Not enough that you could really tell I did much. I actually completed 3 repeats of the 4 patterns but it is still not ready to bind off. Still need to do another 4 repeats and then I still have the back to do.
The flu has hit my son's family. The Grand daughter has been down and out since Saturday morning, Daddy got it today and mommy was smart and got a flu shot so all she has is a sinus infection. I am not allowed to take the flu shot because of meds I take so I am not allowed to be anywhere near them for at least a week. Hubby did go by there and drop off homework for the girl but he said he was out of there in about 30 seconds and came home and washed his hands real good. No, we really are not germaphobes but I have a very important trip coming up on 2 weeks and do not have time to get sick. Much less with the flu that is going around here in Arizona. We have already had 1 death from it and many hospitalized. Arizona has been hit the worse of any other state. How nice is that.....NOT!
Ok, enough about ickiness.
You know, back in the day, I use to make all my clothes and even my kids clothes and shirts for my hubby. It was so much cheaper back then. Then the cost of material became so high that sewing was no longer saving money. Walmart, KMart, Target and some other discount stores made clothing very affordable and there was not need to sew them.
This past week, I spent several days trying on blouses. I knew what I wanted and the type of blouse I love. I found ONE. That's right, only one blouse and the color was so horrible, I looked dead in it. Then the price tag was staggering too. That did it. Off to JoAnn's I went. McCalls patterns were on sale for $1.99 each. (better that he $17.95 they normally are) I found two patterns that would make the perfect type of blouse that I love.
