Happy July 4th!!! StyleArc patterns hath arrived!
Spirit, let's hear it....a flag in another development, discovered on my walk tonight.
How is everyone's 4th going??? I enjoyed reading Antoinette's blog posting today about our trip to NYC and seeing the dress she made from fabric purchased that day.
I cooked and baked today. This picture is blurry; those cookies don't look good but they were! I baked because it's my chiro's birthday this week...but there have been other recipients as well, including my stomach!
Looked what arrived Saturday! StyleArc patterns from Australia! Here's how they come, in binder sheets. The free pattern is in the bottom right binder sheet, with a customized letter.
Here's the Emma dress pattern instructions with sample fabric. The instructions fit on one page! The pattern itself is folded up and sealed with a "stylearc" sticker. You have to order your exact size. No multisized patterns here.
Here's what it looks like unfolded. The paper is sturdy. and it appears that the pattern has been hand traced!
The Emma dress is rated "challenging". I think I need something easy right now....like redoing the Burda from yesterday???
The rose of sharon opened up this week and HUGE bumble bees are back! I waited too late to take these pix; the flowers are already starting to close up. But the bees love all that pollen!! And I love those bumble bees. I think they are pretty cool.
Coming in for a landing!
Be well! Good night!
