RC#1 -Saturdays It's Saturday morning. There will be no glamour shots for Me Made May 15. I'm up. I have coffee. That's enough. ( I am wearing a me-made from a bazillion years ago though) This is the old Textile Studios Marseilles top pattern. I love this top. I have only made it a couple of times, but it is super comfortable and although I think it is pretty blah, I get compliments on it a lot. Heck, my daughter even said she liked it and that's something I don't hear much regarding my clothing choices from her. *OK, I just read that. Glamour shots? Really? Sorry, you won't be seeing those on this blog - LOL!
RC#2 Flowers. I love flowers. I think they are beautiful. I think I'm allergic to them. :-(
Yesterday my wonderful husband sent me flowers at work. Since it was Friday, I did not want to leave them in my classroom all weekend, so I put them in my car. Well, after work I had to go to Visalia, go to the pharmacy, pick up my husband (he's been out of town all week), go to JoAnns (99c Simplicity patterns- but I still couldn't get the one I wanted to replace in my size), and go to the copy shop. After that, we went out to dinner and then to the grocery store. 45 minute drive after all of that. By the time I got home, I could hardly breathe. This morning, my eyes are like giant puffballs. (see picture above) I'M NOT COMPLAINING - it was so sweet of DH to send flowers. I just think I can't drive around with them in my car for several hours!
I love the Ikat fabric that they used on this dress. I haven't found just the right fabric for this yet, but at least I have the pattern printed out (I'll be saving that like gold!)
I also recently purchased the Megan Neilsen Cascade Skirt Pattern. Now, I've already paid $12 for that pattern, if I take that to the copy shop, I'm going to be paying $25 for a skirt pattern that is very similar to a Simplicity pattern that I just bought for 99c!
I'm hoping that some of you with more experience than me in digital patterns can depart some of your great wisdom with me on this issue! PLEASE!
