Hi, everyone! I just joined this team because I love the name. I love vintage clothes (well, vintage everything really), but it's so hard to buy anything in my size that I am constantly disappointed. I'm trying to learn how to sew, but I stink at that, probably because it's so hard for a beginning sewer to sew clothes that fit a lumpy, potato-shaped body.
Which is not to say I don't love my body. It is pretty amazing after all, in spite of the neglect it's suffered in recent years! It's just that I would feel so much sexier if, for example, I didn't walk like an old lady. Having knee, back problems, and asthma isn't too sexy either.
Inside this potato body there is a singer and performer buried. I just have to carve away some of this extra flesh to find her. Ha, enough with the potato analogy. I used to sing and play the piano and ukulele -- now I don't like to do it anymore because I don't want people looking at me. Sad but true! So I'm doing everything I can to change things.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. :)
Don't let the turkeys get you down!
