Pattern Review blog surprise! Plus cooking
So on Friday I was checking my twitter feed and saw that my review of NewLook 6000 was featured on the PatternReview blog...I must admit, it's kind of wild to read someone else's summary of my review. I don't know why I was chosen to be featured but I am honored! Then Monday night I realized that my profile pic is one of the rotating pix in their "what's new" box (if you go to http://sewing.patternreview.com/ and my pic isn't in the box, press refresh until it is). Get out of town! The dress is definitely a winner. I did fix the stretching of the CB seam over the weekend the "right" (or should I say better) way (i.e. ripping it out and ironing interfacing in, then sewing it back up) I wore it again to work today and got lots of nice comments, and have received great comments on the dress here on my blog and of course on my review at pattern review. It was my 99th review on PR...what will be #100???
In other news: It had to be done. I cooked tonight. I'd MUCH rather sew but I need to get back to eating more of my own food. Unfortunately I didn't have peas for the minestrone tonight.
Here's the lemon chicken orzo
Library books: a repeat (I needed a refresher), a novel and a book about ayurveda.
As always, be well and good night!
