In my secret parallel life (the one where I don't have to actually earn money) I sew. A lot.
And because I dream about this life a great deal I buy fabric and patterns and then they sit in a cupboard. They call to me when I pass by and every now and then I look in and stroke them. TMI???
So anyway. I also follow craft blogs . Like this one. I love her patterns and fabrics and books. Today I called in at the local Spotlight store and nearly fell over. Liesl Gibson has released Lisette patterns under the Simplicity banner exclusively for Spotlight. YEEEHAAAA!
I got this one. Yum yum.
By the way, the ladies at the Glenfield Spotlight sewing section have to be the unfriendliest and least helpful people I have ever come across. It's like the customer is there to annoy them. Today I murmured to the lady next me at the pattern bench about how unfriendly they were (after a sales lady had basically told me she was too busy to help me) and unleashed a torrent. The WHOLE bench was soon discussing the inadequacies of the staff. Seems I am not alone!
