While I was waiting

Monday, January 3, 2011

So the only downside to my lovely large new sewing room was that it had no table for my machines and hubby has forbidden me from taking over the kitchen.  As everyone knows, as soon as you can't do something it's the only thing that you want to do!  So I spent hours blog surfing and ended up buying myself a few new patterns.  Here's what I got:

 Butterick 5490 RRP $19.95

 Butterick 5520 RRP $18.95

 Butterick 5558 RRP $19.95

 Butterick 5564 RRP $17.95

 McCalls 5525 RRP $16.95

 Vogue 8581 RRP $22.50

Vogue 8685  RRP $25

Amazingly, I saved a bundle.  The total RRP for the seven patterns is $141.25.  Spotlight are having a sale with 50% off RRP of all patterns, with a further 10% off the reduced price for VIP card holders, which would have brought the total down to $63.56.  The Vogue, Butterick and McCalls patterns website was having a sale and with my club BMV membership savings the total cost, including $25 for postage to Australia, was only $45.93. Love it.  If only we got the 99 cent pattern sales in Australia.

But the best part of yesterday?  When hubby dragged me away from the computer for my opinion on 'something'.  'Something' turned out to be the height of a table for my machines.  He'd whipped me up a quick bench so that I could get sewing again.  So now I'm off to finish M6078.
