I'm miserable.......

I'm sick of feeling itchy, and ugly, and salty! I have poison ivy!!! No this is not a picture of my leg. I googled pictures of poison ivy victims and this by far beats them all!!! I stayed home from church today with my salt whiskers! I'm trying some different home remedies to relieve the itching. So far, the salt works the best. I wet my skin and them rub salt all over the rash. It stings real bad at first, but then the itching goes away! This is the 2nd. year in a row I have gotten it after weeding the flowerbeds. At this point, I'm ready to tear up the flowers and have Duane plant grass instead. :) Tomorrow, I'm going to buy some activated charcoal and take it. Supposedly that helps with poison ivy.
On a happier note, I have been sewing this weekend. I made 2 nightgowns, 2 pairs of culottes, 1 skirt & a long-sleeved t-shirt. I'm getting a head start of the cold-weather clothes! Callie is posing with one of her new fall/winter play outfits below.
These culottes are so cute for Callie to wear. They keep her decent while she climbs, turns somersaults, rides her bike, etc.... This was a fun outfit to sew! :)

Ugh! I HATE poison ivy (but I'll have to admit, I LOVE that website!) Looking at the Skin Rash Wall of Fame just makes me itchy!

Good luck with eliminating it!
