Unfashionable Me

August 8, 2021

Good morning.  Gosh, I slept a bit later this morning!  I woke up in time to watch "Fit 2 Stitch" on PBS.  (Rhode Island PBS)  Today's show was about fake furs, how they came about and how to make beautiful coats with them.  So, so interesting!

Right now, the "Quilting With Nancy" show is on.  They are discussing some of the newer, more modern quilt designs.  Some are quite lovely.  Some are downright ugly.  To me.  

Last night, I watched the last two episodes of "Making The Cut" on Amazon Prime Video.  I do love these fashion design programs, but I'm not a lover of many of the newer fashions.  Some look as though a hank of material were thumb tacked to your shoulder (or another part of your body) and just left to hang.  Others are just underwear with some sparkle splashed on them.   I'm not into the sheer clothing with only the undies beneath them.  In other words, I'm just not fashionable!

This was the finale to this season and I really enjoyed watching each of the finalists design their pop up store and the fashions to display in it.  For the finale, they each had to make ten new outfits.  The fashion runway show at the end was dazzling.  The winner got a million dollars, plus a slew of other impressive gifts.

I did no crocheting yesterday.  Instead, I went online looking for patterns for solid Granny Square patterns.  Both square and rectangular.  I found some really nice ones and now I can't wait to try one of them. 

While I was wandering around the web, Deanne and some of her friends were enjoying a Hawaiian Luau party.  When these ladies get together, they always have a fun time!

I did make a meat sauce and a pot of pasta yesterday.  And, I used my own home grown tomatoes for the sauce!  Yum! Yum!  I've never done this before, and I must say the sauce was simply delicious!  My tummy is beginning to rumble now because it wants breakfast.  

So, the big question is -- should I have a bowl of spaghetti?  Or a bowl of cereal?  Hmmm, if I think about it for a few minutes the spaghetti will probably win!  Not that it matters.  I can always have the cereal for lunch.

On that happy note, I'm off to the kitchen.  Then I'll enjoy some blog reading.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

I am much with you that some of the modern clothing looks aweful. There are pieces that are nice and even comfortable to wear, but at least something has to have a real shape in it and nice pattern or color.

How wonderful you could make your spaghetti sauce with your own tomatoes. It tastes so much better than jarred or tinned one.

Deanne's Hawai-party brough a big smile on my face. Those girls have funny ideas, but why not as long as they have fun?

Granny's are always nice to make, and there are lots of different ones. What would you make with a lot of granny squares?

Have aa wonderful day and fun with trying some granny squares.

Your opinions on fashion closely match mine. Your descriptions were entirely accurate.

Spaghetti for breakfast? I'm learning that when one lives alone, they can eat whatever they want whenever they want. And sometimes I do just that.

Great post, Miss Edna!

You should have whatever you feel like for breakfast. I often have ceral for dinner since I am cutting back on calories.
The Hawaiian party looks like a good time was had by all.
I am over this heat wave and now we have air pollution from a Northern California fire. It is very disturbing. so amazon is bringing me my groceries. I won't go out if I don't have to.
I hope your week will be wonderful just like you. Take care. HUGS
