Hello Bloggy Friends! Today's post is brought to you by procrastination. You see, while it is one thing to pull a college paper out of your "you-know-what", it is an entirely different matter to prepare for a major international move in two days. That is to say, you can't. Well, maybe you can but I certainly can't. I'll spare you the details by just saying that pretty much everything got f*cked up. Everything. It was certainly a lesson learned.
The point is, all my sewing stuff, patterns, fabric, reference books ect, were packed in the wrong shipment. Instead of taking two and a half weeks to get here, it will all take two and a half to three months. I cried. Like a giant baby. Luckily, I was able to shove one small container of my sewing necessities into the correct shipment. Stuff like my sewing shears, pins, marking tools, and measuring tape. After I finished crying on Skype to the Hubster, he told me "Just buy more fabric." Smart man, that one. So I spent two days picking out patterns and coming up with a sewing plan to keep me busy until my other stuff gets here. (Typing this all out makes me seem like a big baby, but trust me when I say it was a drama filled week)
Here are the patterns I picked out. I received the first shipment today, and am expecting the last one tomorrow. I nabbed these while they were on sale in their various venues. Hooray for pattern sales.

PS: This was my first post using the new Blogger post editor. I found it to be
freaking infuriating challenging. Apologies if anything seems out of whack. I'm still trying to get the hang of it.
