More patterns....

"Sale" - It has to be one of the most dangerous words in use. Especially when it involves fabric or patterns.

No prizes for guessing where this post is going... :) Yep, I succumbed to the Patternreview 25% off sale. Joining the other patterns unlikely to be sewn in a hurry are 3 Jalies -







and 2 Kwik Sews.




The last one is for DD1 - Yes, I gave in and just bought the darned pattern at her request. I don't have time to fuffle around getting the girl to stand still for pattern adjusting. I don't know about you guys, but personally I'd be pretty polite to the person holding the pins and fitting me...

As for me...

Getting behind on the writing, but not quite at panic stage yet. Which is good, cos panic probably wouldn't be the best cure for the case of writer's block I seem to have.

And I desperately need some tidier clothes (what's new), especially if I'm going to be seen around the department more. Having said that, really the most likely pattern to be sewn will be the Jalie polar fleece socks. They've got to be relatively quick don't you think? I can't remember where I saw it, but 'someone' had used rubber shelf liner as a non-slip sole on slippers and I'm thinking I might add some to these for wearing around the house, especially if it stops me breaking my neck on the wooden stairs.

Sigh, if only I could get away with a wardrobe of tatty clothes, but snazzy fleece socks....

Sounds a fair enough wardrobe to me!

I just received my order from PR too. Still at the stage of picking up and stroking patterns while daydreaming...

I tagged you on my blog. Now to see how long it takes for the writing/reading/general stress of post doc study to drive you to blog surfing....
