I'm sorry guys that I didn't get the newsletter out this week -- my week was thrown off. This week's theme is "Don't judge a pattern by its cover." We will attempt to make attractive garments from very unattractive pattern (envelopes).
why thank you, you are very kind (and diplomatic!) x
You are funny.....Everything I have seen...has been oh tooo cute.. Havent seen any of the "weird" ones.. Wish you could have been with me today... I went to Tupelo [Hancock Fabrics]..oh wow.... they were having a remodeling sale.. 3 tables of fabrics at 1.00 yd...[some of the bolts were like $9-10 yd regularly] yep...I was SO naughty !!!!!!!! With all the patterns i have been buying , and now all this fabric... I may have to go on a BIG diet...no food..ha,ha
It was a real fine... I NEVER EVER run into those kind of bargains... I bought 60 yds...But you know..I already have "lots" of fabric in my stash...so I really didnt 'need' it.. However..when I went through my old stash... I really didnt have alot of 4-5 yd peices.. [what you most of the time need for a dress]. Mostly, I had been buying for the grandkids and it is smaller amounts.. Anyway...that's how I justified myself..ha
Now...dont tell me to eat more...I have been dieting for a month now [really SLOW progress,ha]. [Getting plum embrassed having to buy those BIG vintage patterns.].
Have a good day.
Glad to hear you are dieting and keeping to it - good for you.
And for the fabric - no justification needed! You should treat yourself (especially if you are on a diet!
