Looking at What's New

I had a bit of unexpected free time so I decided to check out the new patterns from the various companies (dunno where my brain was when I typed counties, lol). Rather masochistic of me as it'll be about 6 months before they get down under but still fun.

Simplicity 2921
I know my youngest daughter is just going to love the unicorns!

Kwik Sew 3591. This one looks like it could be very handy in the rumpus room. I don't know if I'd ever actually get around to making it but it's a good idea.

I really like the side twist on this one. A bit different.

McCalls 5644 These are cute. I can see my DD1 wanting the cat one.

Vogue 8497 Wow. I'm inspired. I want to make the green pieced look top. The purple looks interesting with the gathered (?) neckband. I can pass on the red zig-zag effect at the moment but it might grow on me.

I don't know, Keely, the diagonals on that red top should be slimming.

I really like that Vogue pattern too! Just need to figure out how to work into my very corporate wardrobe!

I like that kwik-sew folding chair pattern - when I was little, we had an entire sofa, loveseat, and chair exactly like it, but in brown denim fabric. It made the BEST forts!

I love the kwik sew futon! My mom got something very much like that about 20 years ago and it's gone with me to college and all of my subsequent apartments. Right now it's on top of some boxes and functioning as my desk chair. :) It's amazing how useful it's been through the years.

And, um, I've got some patterns to send you. I will, I promise, get them to you before they show up in your stores down there. It's getting to the post office that's so hard ... and that would be a far better excuse if the post office weren't one block from my apartment. :)
