I ordered another assortment of patterns from eBay and it arrived yesterday afternoon. This one's got some good stuff in it, although not quite as sweet as the last two I've won (see here and here if you want more details). Don't get me wrong--this one is still very good! 49 patterns, of which 33 I'd consider keepers. 67% positive is not a bad average, especially at a cost of $0.68 per pattern for the ones I'm keeping.
I also received a fabric that I bought for the Michelle Obama Convention Dress. It's rayon blend doubleknit from Lucy's Fabrics. The fabric is royal blue vs. the turquoise of her dress, but that's ok. I look great in all shades of blue. I happen to have a couple pairs of earrings that will coordinate, so I'm even accessorized!
And, there's a package from Fabric Mart that I expect to receive any day now. Yep, I'm still buying stuff because I don't have time to sew much...there's just something wrong with that.
