My New Excitement

Last week Hobby Lobby had McCall’s patterns on sale, 99 cents each. I had to check it out. I was a pattern virgin, but I quickly figured out the works – look in the catalogs, write down pattern number, look for it in the drawers. It took me a few minutes to come to the conclusion that although the catalogs had different covers by the same brand, it had the same contents.

I also had the privilege that day to shop by myself, without two curious kids in tow. So I took some time to browse through the catalogs, then narrow down my choices. I felt this was a beginning of something great in my life. I was going to learn to sew with patterns and learn a bit about how clothes came together. First I had 12 patterns on my list, then eliminated half. However, only five were in the drawers. They sold out on a cute purse pattern. Luckily, my next stop was JoAnn and they matched prices. I got the last pattern for the same price as the others.

Of course, when I got home, I called my grandma for an appointment to take Pattern Reading 101. I’ll list my patterns on this week’s Friday 5 at 5.
