Shrugs and Therapy, Weekly Photo Challenge Lost in Details

Shrug Patterns

Shrug Patterns

I wanted to sew a shrug (click here for Wikipedia definition of shrug). Reason: I bought a dress that has a bodice that is a bit more revealing than I want it to be, so I sought to make a little shoulder cover-up, after having been inspired by the young women in this You-tube video, 195 Dresses.

I went to JoAnn Fabric on the day when all McCall’s patterns were 5 for $5, and Vogue patterns were $3.99. I figured, hey, I’ll just get what’s available. I also had a couple of shrug patterns in the stash already. Here are some of them separately from the above “Lost in the Details” photo.

I tentatively decided on the Rectangle Shrug from Little Green Dresses. Meanwhile, I got in a car accident so I’ve been sort of drifting, trying to feel better. I’m going today to another Bio-mat session. I won 7 Bio-Mat sessions at a silent auction at the local women’s gym, and I’ve been to 2 of them so far. We laughed at the advertisement which claims Bio-mat therapy helps heal everything from ADD to Cancer, but now I’m hoping those amethyst crystals kick in all the arcane healing capacity they can muster on my behalf!

    Oh no! I wondered where you were yesterday and why you didn’t blog about the Weds meeting you when to.(?) Anything you would like me to do for you, just call. I will be going down to Orlando tomorrow (the grandchildren are at Disney World this week courtesy of their Aunt June ) but the rest of the week (including today) is wide open. Feel better quickly, Hon. Please?
