No Mummy for Hallowe'en

WooHoo! It's here! My new sleeve & glove just came! This is to control my Lymphoedema - a swelling of the arm, because they took out the lymph nodes after the breast cancer. I will be posting in more detail later, I am just so glad I will not have to be wrapped any more! The picture below, is not true for colour sorry. It is pretty close though.




The colours are closer to the those in the Swedish Flag, which only makes sense, being of Swedish decent and all.

Actually that was not the only reason for choosing these colours. I figured that the yellow would not be as noticeable under a white blouse as the blue would be, but, a yellow glove would show the dirt terribly. Blue would be noticeable under a white blouse, but would not show the dirt quite as much!

Now, I would have just gone with purple again, but, when looking for a job, I read years ago that wearing purple is almost guaranteed to NOT get you the job. Blue is good for job hunting. As I can't stand the thought of the neutral/tan/beige toned sleeves, I figured that blue would be good. I figure it is just as noticeable no matter the colour, so, why not be a colour I like. I am so happy it is here!

Good morning All!

I didn't know that about purple and job hunting! I'm a big fan of blue, too, so I'd say good call.

Hope it helps with the swelling!

Echo Crabby about purple. I had no idea.
Blue is the communication colour so that'll help you express yourself in the interviews.
Love the disembodied arm and hand photo. Very seasonal. The bare fingers really set it off.

Yes, I read about it years ago in one of those "find-a-job" help booklets. It being one of my favorite colours, I was rather disappointed, especially as I had a killer suit at the time that was dark - almost eggplant - purple.

Leah, too bad I have such an old webcam, oh, but maybe that is what makes the photo eh? All grainy and such.

It's a bird. It's a plane, No, it's SuperReb! Cool superhero colours and I sure hope it helps. Nice manicure too, by the way. :)

Thanks Hilary! I never thought of it as super hero style, but, that's better than a mummy anyday!

Thanks sis, are you buying or just selling?

Selling, selling. Must make more bags....
