Patterns Galore!

Just a small note today to share my excitement with you friends!

Allison in New Jersey (who doesn't have a blog... yet!) saw the post where I offered to get Burda issues for anyone in the US having a hard time finding them. I liked the idea of a trade better than receiving money, and so did she. Her Joann's store was having a pattern sale so we traded the Burda for 5 patterns! I sent her another sewing magazine as well though, because, well, one magazine just didn't seem a fair trade for FIVE patterns. The euro-dollar rate was not very fair on her end of the deal.
Allison's package came today and I am so excited. I've never got so many patterns at the same time before. As I was telling Allison today, I feel like a kid at Christmas!

There are Simplicity 3678, 3631, 3744, 5923, and Newlook6727.

Some of those patterns had been on my wishlist for a loooong time... I can scratch them off now.
I even chose a fabric with Tany last Wednesday to make the 3631 jacket... and will follow Tany's advice through and through. Can't wait. Although, I may start with the 3678 knit dress first. Boy, I want to do them all at the same time!
Friends, I'm going to be busy!

Thank you Allison, you really made my day; and it's been lovely getting to know you. We'll definitely be doing this again!

I also started writing an entry about my meeting with Tany... I'll post it tomorrow, most probably!

Have a lovely weekend, everyone. I know I will!
