How are your patterns going? Hope all is well......take care

SUUUURRREEE! Yeah, I will send you some pdf patterns (Adobe format) if you want. I'll send them by email. Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular. Thank you so much.
BTW, let me know how your tutorials are going. I was thinking of doing the same thing. I am nervous about it b/c I feel so vunerable. I've only been sewing for 2 years and self taught. I'm afraid that I'll look silly.

Hi Jodijean:
I think we have a lot in common and I'd like to know a bit more about you and if you'd want to be friends.

Thank you for the email. I can't draft anything is okay to join the drafing group?
Whenever I try to invite friends, what comes up is the login failed. I have a heavy bust line, so always having problems trying to get a good fit.

Hi JodiJean, I just found this comment box and your website and blog. I am a little slow on the uptick of all the different internet sites and where to find things. I didn't want to hi-jack the wall thread so I tried the friend box first. Love your website. Your Finley and Aidan are so cute. You must have fun sewing for them. I am yarnjourney at wordpress and on flickr. Hugs, Joyce
