As we all know from Ms Gjeometry a good warmup is essential before an event. So, before the BIG DRAWING!!!! for The Plus Sized Pattern Pyramid, my stars needed a little exercise. So, in a failed attempt to make it all about me, I reveal one of my favorite unblogged pieces from this summer. New Look 6802.
Mine is of course tunic length, my favorite thing! Now this pattern is one of those ‘pass over you 4 million times, now I’ve made you where have you been all my life?’ patterns. I enjoyed the make, loved the little knotty twisty business, didn’t even get any knit wedged under the throat plate. Yippee! My only changes involved the side panels. As the pattern is designed, they come down far on the hips and perhaps on another, create a svelte line. On me they felt confining. I likes a bit of swish to the skirt, so I gathered it up to just under the bust. I got the look without the confinement.
But what exercise were you speaking of Anne? Here I must tell a tale. But you won’t repeat it, will you? Last week Bruderlein was cruelly looked upon by his physician and declared portly. Um, ok, I knew this was coming but what can I say? He is his mothers pup- his hobbies all involve reclining, watching, commenting and light snacking. So now we have a nightly jaunt planned. With sisters of course for encouragement.
From their standpopint, it went well.
All names have been put on a beloved toy ‘rave wristband’ style. The first toy to be claimed and carried off will be our winner. Will it be Mr Jingles, Liesl’s stuffed rat? One of Katze’s prized smurfs? Perhaps Bruderlein’s meerkat? Many other popular and well-chewed contestants are in the box and we are all ready!
Oh, they are on it now! Here we go, it’s looking like a real pressure cooker situation here- Down in front! We can’t see the action! I knew I should have invested in a ‘toybox cam’ for this! They’ve moved the box onto the floor, looks like they are getting serious now!
Now, who had their name on the winning toy? I know, I know, this is all very exciting. Perhaps we should pause here for a public service announcement about spaying and neutering……..NO!!! We are going to announce our winner.
It’s Tanya Maile – our Mrs Hughes!!!!
