It’s that time of year and I, for one, am a bit busy. How about your good selves?
Join me for Virtual Tea this week and we can talk!
Over here, our postal peeps are done in… A few small bits of fabric were sent from Georgia at the end of November and are still “in transit.” Good thing they aren’t anything for the holiday.
Earlier in December several pattern companies had sales, so I got busy ordering PDFs, then downloading the files to send off to PDFPlotting for printing.
Because of the C problem, my apartment complex’ office can’t receive oversize packages. (Patterns come rolled in a long box, not folded flat.)
Remembering that, I called PDFPlotting and asked about a better way to ship. Got an answer right back with an alternative (UPS) for only $2 more. Well worth it — no hassle getting them right to my door in 2 days. Phew!
Then Vogue Fabrics sent word they were having a short-but-sweet fleece sale. I realised my winter wardrobe was getting is threadbare, assessed the new patterns, and ordered fleece. After the dust sorta settled I ordered again.
The day I realised the Atlanta cotton wouldn’t arrive this week BOTH Vogue orders arrived. Talk about a Happy Dance! The last night of the sale I decided to order a bit more . . . . . .
What can I say… it’s been a tough year. 😀
Am I the only person that immediately checks stash fabric for matches with new fabrics?
Ahhh . . . . . . . Happy Dance!

For those who don’t know about Heartbeat, Wiki says, “Heartbeat is a British police drama series set in 1960s North Riding of Yorkshire based on the “Constable” series of novels written by ex-policeman Peter N. Walker, under the pseudonym Nicholas Rhea, and broadcast on ITV in 18 series between 1992 and 2010.”
The other reason to celebrate is New Zealand’s re-election of their Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, who’s been a shining light through the C-19 crisis. So many of us outside New Zealand are delighted for her, and for all New Zealanders!
