I am having so much fun piecing Maggie's quilt
that I have decided to make a few more quilts for me/us,
using my hand-dyes, as I am with hers.
So, thinking waaaaay ahead,
I am dyeing up a few sample fat quarters.
Above is the first one,
and it's not nearly dark enough.
So, it's good that I am only dyeing fat quarters.
I will try again tomorrow.
In the meantime,
I have busied myself constructing Maggie's bunny costume/suit.
This is a Burda pattern that I purchased online.
It was a download, and I will tell you right now
I HATE IT.
I learned to sew using Simplicity patterns,
and like all other US patterns, the seam allowances
are included in the pattern.
Burda, as most of you know,
does not do that.
So it's a pain in the patoody to remember to add the seam allowance.
Would it be so difficult for Burda to do that?????
And the directions for this costume leave much to be desired.
I've been sewing for well over 50 years *YIKES *
and I think I can follow a pattern fairly well....
but this one leaves a lot to the imagination.
If I was a beginner sewstress, I wouldn't know what in tarnation
they were talking about or how to proceed.
So, I give this pattern company a thumbs down.
That said, it was the only bunny pattern
I could find online.
I have just finished listening to
"The Girl on the Train".
Have you read it or listened to it????
It is phenomenal!!
I highly recommend it.
OK, that's it for tonite.
thanks for stopping by
peace to you!
