Finally done with the crocheting. My White Orchid is blocked, and this weekend I will find some cute buttons for it. Ew, looking at the photo I can now see that this top was nowhere near aligned when I pinned it. I will use a ruler next time instead of just eyeballing it.
Hope I haven’t gotten to fat to model this.
Now I have to find some pretty buttons.
There’s one problem, though. I’ve gained more than 10 lbs since I began this project and I don’t think it’s going to fit. I have to lose some serious weight. Not just to fit my crochet (LOL) but for my health.
Most people wouldn’t think I have much of an issue to look at me. Just a few pounds overweight, but medically I am OBESE! I’m wearing a size 12 right now (barely), but my body fat is much too high and it is affecting my blood pressure and cholesterol. My doctor called me last week at my job and told me no more red meat and no fried foods. I could do nothing but laugh. She thought she had upset me, but I had to confess to her that I was eating some fried okra as I was listening to her. LOL! That was definitely a sign. I didn’t tell her I was eating fried okra and fried plantain.
Take care of yourselves, everybody. I’m definitely going to make an effort to do better.
Happy New Year!
Sorry for such an ugly logo. I’ll create a nicer one when (if) I get time.
I am in the process of making “Orchid” by LilyGo. The top looked so cute and well-fitting on her so I had to make it. The instructions have been very clear and easy to follow. I’m about 3/4ths done. I’m on the bottom portion now. The thin yarn and small stitches make a beautiful garment, but this takes lots of stitches! Jeez.
