No sewing here...almost

Last Saturday I had every intention of working on a muslin of the Vogue dress I last blogged about. After performing my wifely duties, I cut the pattern out of an absolutly hideous knit fabric I found in my stash. I think I bought it just for the purpose of muslins. Sewing it didn't happen because I found a mysterious lump in my armpit. My first thought was of course, was breast cancer. After totally freaking out the husband and myself, I spent the rest of the day thinking the worst. Sunday morning after closer examination, Dr. Husband decided it wasn't cancer but instead a boil. Whew! That made me feel much better and guess what? He was right! Well, on one hand he was right. It was not A boil but two boils. Yikes! Until they burst, there won't be much sewing goin on here.

BTW I know you all think mentioning my wifely duties was TMI. Get your minds out of the gutter! My Saturday wifely duties are making coffee first thing then patching jeans that no thrift store would accept and would better be used for rages except that the husband feels that an $8000 machine should at least be able to make the world's rattiest jeans like new! LOL.

  7. that's funny...my fiance thinks my $5000 Bernina should be able to replace missing teeth from a broken zipper. Glad your husband has more realistic expectations. Glad your lumps are just boils.

  9. My wifely duties include fetching a copy of the free local "newspaper" for my husband to read while he waits for our order at the fish house. Glad your diagnosis was a relatively benign one.
