... is 5 days off from work to sew.
Ba-da-BING! Wish granted. :-)
Yep, our office is officially closed until Monday. Can I get a woohoooooo?
Our "deal" was that instead of leaving early on Christmas Eve (today), we'd have the Thursday and Friday afterward off. (Personally, I love that deal!) But someone must've dipped into the Elf Juice early because at 10:00 a.m., word came around that the office was now closed and we could go home until Monday. Can I get another woohoooooo?
So, what's a sewing girl with some extra Christmas bonus cash to do? Well, I thought about stopping in at Joann's ... I do need those buttons to cover to finish Ms. Moneypenny ... but I quickly put that store out of my mind since it's right across the street from the Mall ... a place I strive to avoid most of the time anyway, but especially in December, and ALWAYS on December 24. Ms. Moneypenny will have to wait a little longer.
And then I remembered a free pattern download I wanted to try before I buy a for-sale pattern. Enter the Skinny B*tch Curvy Chick Tonic Tee (hey, I didn't name the company and really, I'm not offended at all, but some of you may be, hence the asterisk).
I really like the Mimosa but since there's a free tester and I have some free time, I thought I'd give the Tonic a whirl first. Then I'll feel better about parting with some cash (and tape) for the Mimosa.
I'll let you know what I think ... but I have to mention that before even starting, I had a little problem with downloading and Betsy, the designer/owner of SBCC, answered my email within an hour. And on Christmas Eve! Nice!
I've since printed and taped the PDF pattern and have my TNT laid on top. It looks very promising.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope Santa brings you everything on your list.I might be doing a little online fabric
