So, remember the Magpie Patterns/Progressive Pioneer giveaway I won awhile back? I got the goods the other day. And yes, I really felt like a winner. I may or may not have jumped up and down with the overstuffed envelope when Mr. Skooks handed it to me.
And since you're simply DYING to know what I picked out of the vast wealth of adorable patterns available, I'll let you in so you can
drown in jealousy celebrate with me.
No surprise on this first one. As I alluded to when I assumed I wasn't going to win, I went ahead and got this:
Next up, something for Kee-ku. Mr. Skooks has a hat kind of like this one that he wears often, which is what initially drew me to the pattern in the first place. That, and there is a lack of cute boy stuff out there in the pattern world. At least from my limited looking around point of view. Kee-ku is not quite 6 months yet so it's not like I've been scouring the offerings for years with no luck:
I was quite drawn to a lot of the embroidery patterns, but settled on this one. You see, my sister is a librarian (and she really WORKS it as a librarian). In the future, it might be fun to work something up for her with this somewhere in there. For those of you that don't click through these links I throw in, I'll just tell you. The title of this pattern is "Sexy Librarians." Hoo-wa.:
Sew Liberated book that I still do NOT seem to have, I did have a chance to get one of her latest patterns. This was my pick. And yes, I'm scared of constructing clothes, but I wanted to try it because I think it's just darling:
So, what d'ya think? I done good, right?
What projects are you working on? Links, please. :)
