Okay so the cutter/tracer "Question of the Day" was quite popular! *LOL* Wow - I didn't realize how much this matters to us sewists! I got everything from a 3 word reply to several paragraphs ~ finely worded of course! I learned a few things - like I have two sets of mothers & daughters who read my blog. That some people trace off even their "Big 4" patterns and the materials you use to trace patterns with is wide-ranging! Personally I'm gonna get me over to Pearl's Art Supplies and see if I can find a roll of the tracing paper that was recommended.
I know there are a lot of comments but some contain some great information in them...so if you haven't read them try to make some time...it is well worth it! And yes Cindy, I do read every single comment that anyone posts - some more than once! *LOL*
If you won one of the prizes from the Blogoversary Give-Away ~ they were mailed from the Post Office today! Carla - you ended up with the new February Burda Style magazine because my lovely daughter (who should be reading my blog and obviously isn't!) found the second January magazine and traced a piece or two from it. Sharon, my friendly neighborhood postal person said that your package should be to you in about a week...everyone else should receive theirs in the next couple of days. Now if I've owed you anything, anything AT ALL...your package was included in the great post-off today! *shew* Glad that's done! *smile*
It's freezing here on the East Coast - temps in the teens (and no Shannon I'm not using the metric system!) but more than anything I want to make a dress. Oh the torture of it all! *LOL* I think its because all of the spring catalogues are starting to make their annual appearance in my mailbox and I'm dreaming of flowy soft dresses for spring ~ which is no where in sight!
Booked our flights and hotel room for vacation! I leave February 9th and am beyond excited!!!
Michelle Obama wore a plum colored Isaac Mizrahi dress to the State of the Union address on Wednesday. I thought it was lovely but some others haven't been so kind! What did you think? And please could we show a little respect in our answers...thanks!
Finally I will be sewing this weekend...it's too damn cold to do anything else! And since my darling baby boy has learned a new trick...I present to you Danny standing up and taking his first steps...
It's a whole new world now!
...as always, more later!
