Patterns and roses...

I am such a sewing nerd. Hobby Lobby has Simplicity patterns on sale for 99 cents each this week. So of course, I got all excited, and I went and bought 9 patterns (there's a 10 limit) to add to my collection. I just love having new patterns. I love pattern envelopes and the instructions and tissue paper inside. But most of all, I love thinking about all of potential in that little envelope. A whole new project, whether it's a dress or Christmas tree skirt or poodle skirt (which is *hopefully* going to be my Halloween costume). Okay, I'm finished gushing about my strange love of patterns for now.

My mom has a rosebush that has these beautifully colored roses on it.

I was just trying to multi-task while my photos were uploading. I had an iTunes card I've been holding onto for a while, until I was absolutely sure which songs I wanted to buy with it. So I was just buying "Let's Get Together" and "The Parent Trap," both from the original "Parent Trap" movie. Annette Funicello sings them. Somehow the page seemed to freeze up, and I was clicking. Next thing I know, I've purchased a whole $9.99 CD of Annette Funicello singing Italian-themed songs. I thought it was some sort of a joke. But no, something happened, and now I've accidentally wasted $10 on a CD that I might listen to one or song off of (no...since it's been done, I'll force myself to listen to the songs). I did not click the Yes button when it says, "Are you sure you want to purchase "..."?" What a rip-off. I had big plans for those songs...Sinatra and Michael Buble and classic movie soundtracks.
Until next time,

  1. yikes, I'm sorry that it made you randomly purchase music. I'm wondering, did you ever listen to the songs? I feel the same way about buying patterns, imagining what kinds of fabric I'll use to how it will look on me and what kind of drape I want it to have and how it will come together...the whole process is so exciting and like an adventure. And then you get to own a unique piece of clothing that no one else owns!

    Beautiful rose pictures.
