Another week...

Another week has gone by.  I didn't sew this week but I did spent time cleaning.  The wood floors look wondering again.

I spent some time this morning looking at the new patterns at the various companies. It is kinda depressing. I rarely seen anything that I find interesting. I did find two items to share.

 The first one is Butterick 5673.  This is the one I think I will purchase. The lines on this dress should be very flattering.  I'll have to check the neckline but otherwise I really like this dress.

This pattern is McCall's 6433.  I really like the look of the dress.  The neckline is lower than what I would like to wear but I really like the pleats down the side.  This is a maybe on my list.

The other thing that I noticed was the number of poncho patterns.  How many ponchos can a person have?  I also saw a pattern for gauchos (?).  I know I'm telling my age by calling them that put I don't know what they are being called now.  That look is right out of the mid-70's.

I guess that it for today.  I would like to clean some in the sewing room and dining room today.  Of course, laundry is in the works already.  It seems like a very lazy day but it raining.  I also need to put some thought into a dinner of some sort.

Happy Stitching!
