My computer is getting fixed!! And, it’s only going to cost me the $125 diagnostic fee I’ve already paid. Yay!! Since I can’t upload camera photos, I can’t show you yet goodies from Marji, Brigitte and Deepika. I’m also wearing the Patrones dress today and it’s getting rave reviews. But, again I can’t post photos from my camera yet :-(
I’ve also booked my tickets to Tampa, Florida for almost two weeks next month! My parents are ‘wintering’ there. I’m making a date with Hot Patterns’ Trudy. Cool, right? It’ll take all my strength not to come back with a Tina Turner accent after hanging out with her. Now, I just have to figure out what from their collection to make for the meet up…..
One nifty gift I can show you is the Russian language La Mia Boutique that colleague Anna brought back from Odessa, Ukraine for me (scanned at work).
I am willing to bet good money that this cover is a re-shoot for the Russian market. It’s just so very eastern European to me. From the PR Boards, member Lyl told me that a Russian company is publishing half of the LMBs each year. They are actually leading thier readers vote on which editions get translated and published.
I have this #22 skirt cut out and ready to be muslined. It’s not much to look at here. But, the line drawing is very cool.
Here’s a link to the line drawing and directions
Of course, I’m struggling with the construction of the skirt. LOL. When the directions are in Italian, between my feeble Spanish, the internet and an Italian associate I can muddle through. But, the Cyrillic characters but Italian on the pattern sheets, I don’t even bother with the directions. Honsetly, I had trouble just finding the right pattern sheet! Just kept opening them up and looking for the right page ;)
Those side pleats are a little confusing since the line drawing is not reflective of all the markings on the pattern. But, the PR boards are proving to be useful.
