Well , it turned out the Lost Weekend turned into the Lost Week - I wasn't as right as rain as I thought. But then I think I got to the point where I was sick of feeling sick so I just stopped. Since we are enjoying such warm summer weather ( you can thank me later for that by the way - I put flannel sheets on the beds and put away my shorts last week. You're welcome) the kidlings ( hereafter known as the art directors) and I walked down to the lake one evening after dinner. And oh ya, I just happened to be wearing my newly completed cotton jacket. The children were ever so helpful choosing poses for me to show off the sweater. Classic Model Poses. As evidence:
This one of course, the "Oh look, there's a knitting pattern thrown out to sea with all it's errata gone with it"
The runway shot. I needed some sort of beret here set at a jaunty angle. Well, Linda Evangelista never had to negoitiate those kind of rocks.
Then the candid shot whilst fixing for a new look.
The old Titanic prow of the ship to show off the sleeves and back.
Please put down your arms Mom, the dog walkers are starting to stare"
The " Don't hate me because I finished my sweater and you didn't"
kids, kids, I am falling through the rocks.*. Remember we are trained professionals. Do not attempt this at home.. *
At this point the art dirctor was getting a little frustrated with the model and offered her services.
And now it's time to retreat back
into my shell home. You know how camera shy I am.
