Ring… ring. That’s the phone. It’s my mum… “Hi mum…”: It starts as an ordinary chat, and ends with a proposition: would you like to choose six patterns for yourself?
Well, what’s the answer to that question? Duh- it’s yes, isn’t it? Now at this point I must tell you that this conversation dates back to New Year. It’s the weekend of the Sew Direct sale and I’m on limited time- it being a weekend sale and me being more than a little indecisive- have worn a total of one items I’ve made from a pattern (and that took me six months to make), am in the middle of the never-ending blouse that is my Sassy Librarian and am nearing the end of a period of several months of extreme fatigue. Will I ever, ever, EVER get to use this lovely gift?
Fast forward a few months and the energy is back, I’ve made two skirts (a Beignet and a quick jersey skirt), finished my Sassy (finally- it only took me two years from point of buying the fabric to finishing it!) and made a top from the GBSB sewing book- I’m riding high on a wave of MUST SEW ALL OF THE THINGS EVERYWHERE NOW.
So what’s a girl to do but ride the wave, start a blog, and keep sewing? Want to hear more about the Six Pattern Challenge? ‘Course you do. And also I’d like you to come back again. So I’m pulling you in with my tempting ways and the promise of a premise. Until then!
