Oh Boy! It's Rednesday!

Here it is Rednesday, and I left the cord from my computer at school...NOT GOOD!  Tried using the little PC notebook, and it would not allow me to upload the pictures.  Now I am on the OLD iBook G4 and this is the best I can do.

Finally at age 71, I have gotten a dressmakers dressform.  Found it on Amazon and was tickled to death when it arrived as it was RED!!!!  Have you ever seen so many adjustable thingys to make it fit me. It even has a bar that sticks out so I can hem what i am making to the perfect length. Amazing!

There are3 button thingys on each side and more on the back.

I decided my Lady Baga needed an outfit for Rednesday so here is the beautiful bathrobe my daughter gave me for my birthday.  It has ruffles around the neck and on the pockets and I LOVE it.

I just had to take a picture of the tag....have you ever seen a Size 2 that would fit a 137 pound woman.  This is the first time since I was a wee one that I have worn a 2!

If you are new to Rednesday, be sure to stop by It's a Very Cherry World and check out all the wonderful, colorful posts.  It is such fun to look at them.  There are so many of us who love red!  As always...HAPPY REDNESDAY TO ALL OF YOU


  1. You did good! You, also, deserve a round of applause for all of your hard work getting this posted! Kudos Ms. Genie.
    You new dress form is perfect, too...we love red!
    Hugs....Cherry Chick

  2. I'm so glad that you got a dress form. I've been on the lookout for one for quite sometime myself.
    Congrats, it sure is a beauty.:o)

  3. I am glad you persisted in getting your post up. I enjoyed it and would hate we missed out on it. That is a neat dress form.

  4. Love the Lady Baga! Great Red post! I can't wait to see what else she has to wear. My mom had one, but I don't know what she did with it.

  5. Lovely red posts. Like your adopt a pet badge. I posted about Asheville's new Pack Park.

  6. shes a beauty Genie...I love dress forms. I keep mine dressed in my living room...Enjoy yours. Hugs,Mica

  7. Lady Baga is a real beauty! After seeing them all over blogland, I almost feel like everyone should have one! I think it would be fun to dress her up in something different every day, and move her from room to room. I think you're really going to enjoy her!
    Happy REDnesday!

  8. Hi Genie!
    Gold star for persistence with the computer thing! After all these years, I still don't know what I'm doing and would have certainly given up and felt defeated.
    What a fun red post, I love your red dress form and your new robe is gorgeous!

    Happy Rednesday,

  9. Hi Genie!
    So happy you stopped by my blog today. Love your new friend. She looks very chic in the bathrobe.
    You really are no fair tho...size 2

  10. My kinda dress form...love it...blessings

  11. I've been looking for a dressform for ages also. I wish I could find a red one, I'm not sure a size 2 would fit my qualifications!!!!. It's too cute.

  12. Who knew they made a dress form in red, that is pretty cool! I use mine to display the jewelry I make, they have lots of uses.....!
    She doesn't just get to sit around and be another "another pretty face". Beautiful robe, too.

  13. oh, I want one of those! I might sew for myself again if I had a dressform. I love the RED! Your robe looks yummy, too!
