Flashback Friday.

I know I’ve really been slacking with the Flashback Fridays lately.  I’ve been a busy little bee getting things finished up for the printed Ruby Lou Doll Pattern and some other things have had to slide.  My pattern testers all did a fabulous job and (fingers crossed) I’m hoping to get it to the printer’s next week.  But you’ll hear more about that later!

Today’s Flashback-er would like to remain anonymous.  I’ll admit that the facial expression was enough to warrant anonymity.  10 points if you can guess who it is (Heather, I know you know).

Here’s some more about the photo to give you a clue to who the mysterious person is:

  • She made this “outfit” about 10 years ago while working at Fabricland during high school.  They wanted to “showcase” their new tie-dye fabrics and for some unknown reason she chose to make a full set of scrubs out of it.  I’m guessing it didn’t help sell a lot of yards (or meters, since she’s Canadian).
  • She decided to subdue the brightness of the outfit by pair it with some long black socks, and clearly has a great eye for fashion.

Well since this is getting pretty awkward I’ll just tell you it’s me.  Yikes!  And for the record, I only wore these as pajamas.  People already like to ignore their dental hygienists, and I’m sure these wouldn’t help establish credibility!  I know that I’ll be outed in the comments anyway, so I might as well fess up.  And I don’t want you to think I’m being rude about someone else’s facial expression.  Sometimes in photos if I’m laughing I look like Mr. Burns (I hate the Simpson’s, by the way), and this was one of those times.  Usually I don’t mind laughing at myself, but today I’d like to preserve just a little bit of dignity.  So there you go.  Have a great weekend!
