First off, I appreciate the kind comments on my rather sloppy appearance yesterday. You all were too nice!
When I pulled the pattern out last night to trace a size down, there wasn't that much difference between the 12 & 14 but the side seams are about 1/2" smaller. The 10 is almost an inch smaller on the sides vs. the 14. My next muslin will be the 12 and I'll go from there. FBA: I guess I need to learn what this really is. I know what the acronym stands for but that's about it. Joy, When I have more time, I definitely need to investigate those 'conditions'. I know I have a tendency to roll my shoulders forward...my posture is horrible! Back when I showing on the hunter circuit, my riding instructors were always busting my butt about riding with my shoulders back and it wasn't something that came naturally. Amanda, Thanks for pointing out where the bust darts end. I didn't even think about that. Granted, I'm not wearing a very supportive bra and the "girls" are probably not where they should be. I found this when doing a quick search about bust darts.."Bust darts should point to the bust point and end at least 1/2" (1.25 cm) and up to 2" (5 cm) away from the bust point."
Thanks for all the input. I really appreciate it!
And yes, there's hardly a picture of me anywhere on the blog. I'm behind the camera most of the time and like so many others, don't really enjoy having my picture taken. But here's one of me and the kids (the kids and I), plus my ever helpful mom from our road trip out west last summer. Once again, no makeup, though my hair is brushed...

And the rules are...
The recipients of this award are asked to answer the following questions, link to whoever awarded them and then pass it on to five, no six people (who they think will actually be willing to answer these totally intrusive and possibly inappropriate questions). Feel free to snag the badge too!
The questions & my answers:
1) What size shoe do you wear? If you wear a size 8 1/2*, can I borrow your shoes?
* replace this with your shoe size!
2) 30's or 60's?
3) Have you ever kissed someone you shouldn't have?
Oh, a time or two.....
4) Have you ever been poisoned? Was it by the girlfriend of the person you kissed?? That is awesomely "Knot's Landing".
If food poisoning counts, then yes! But no, it wasn't by any girlfriends or was it?
5) Who's on your "Celebrity Free Pass" list (top 5)?
This is the question that delayed me responding to the questionnaire. I'm not really sure so I'll just throw some names out in no particular order...
1. Anthony Hopkins
2. Daniel Craig
3. Matthew Fox
4. Jake Gyllenhaal
5. Curtis Stone
And the lucky six nominees that I'll pass the IAAT award on to...
Nicole over at Five and Counting...
Angela from SewMentalMama
Helen & Cara who write at Crafts for Boys (that counts for 2 since both ladies are definitely all that!)
Sarah at Apple of the Earth
Camille over at Creative Pursuits
Play along ladies if you want!
