I’m still amazed that we are almost 200 days in to this year. We’re 8 and a half days past the halfway point of 2011. Unreal. According to the Farmers’ Almanac we are officially in the Dog Days of Summer (July 3-August 11). If spring is the season of rebirth and new life and winter is the season of sleep and death what do you suppose summer and fall are?
But, I, uh didn’t start out tonight to be all deep thoughts. So, moving on …
It occurred to me some time today that the scarves I’ve been wearing since October are probably not enough to last me for the rest of my life. For reasons I can’t explain to you, because truthfully I don’t know why myself, I had been in the mindset that the scarves are temporary. Now I knew from the first days after I woke up from surgery that most of my hair was gone from the surgery and skin grafts so whatever kept me from planning long term for head coverings is beyond me.
Flash back to this afternoon …
I’m sitting on the couch Googling headscarves and hats when I come across a cancer forum where women are talking about going to the fabric store and buying fabrics to hem and use for headscarves. This way they can have scarves in as many colors as they’d like in fabrics they like. One women bought sequined material. *faints* Oh.my.gosh! Could you imagine a pink sequined scarf? Dear God I’d wear it every day. *laughs* I’m kidding. Maybe.
Moving back on topic. Easily distracted? Who me? Oh yeah, me. Anyway. Way back when during my freshman year of high school, which was way too many years ago for me to feel comfortable divulging I learned to sew in Home Ec. Flash forward to the year Chuck and I got married (also many years ago now). I made pillows to go in the heart-shaped boxes that I gave my bridesmaids their wedding jewelry in. I haven’t sewed a thing since then and I’ve never even seen a sewing machine up close. What do you think girls? Can a girl hand sew a hem for headscarf? Can someone who hasn’t sewed in almost 14 years pull it off? It can’t be that hard to sew in a straight line, right? *looks nervous*
Any suggestions? Any and all advice is appreciated. Laughing wildly and pointing at me will hurt my feelings but drive the point home nicely. LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by every day. I love you all.
