I never received my April BurdaStyle in the mail. What I did receive, however, was the single white piece of paper that is usually in the plastic bag with my Burda. I waited a couple of weeks to see if it was just a whoospie. But no, my Burda magazine had been swallowed up by the Lost Mail Monster (closely related to the Where the Hell Did My Other Sock Go Pixie and the I Know My Earbuds Were Here Yesterday Gremlin). I called GLP and they “were very sorry but they were out of that issue.” Dammit! They said to call back in a few weeks to see if they had extras once the stores send back the magazine. Well, they did and so now a new, shiny, crisp April Burda is winging its way to me across the United States. It’s weird how many times I’ve thought about something so small over the last few weeks but I love my Burdas.
I really like my pale blue cropped pants and I’m getting a lot of wear out of them. Well, let’s see, I’ve worn them once since I made them but I think I will get a lot of wear out of them. I might like this pair of cropped pants as well.
I’m still pondering what to do with my Pantone Challenge fabrics. I think I have a couple good ideas but they are not quite trace-pattern-cut-fabric-go-and-be-bold ideas yet. Yet. We’ll see what happens this weekend.
