|Monserrat, Julie, me, Heather Lou, Catherine, Suzie and Shannon|
Not only did I get to finally meet Heather Lou after what seems like years of blog communication, but also Shannon, whose *other* blog about lactivism I was reading years ago and never made the connection until the day before we met! Monserrat (on the far left) and I have a standing lunch date whenever I am downtown working at Biochemistry, because she just so happens to be another sewing scientist on that campus. (what is it with sewing scientists?!?) Julie, it turns out lives just down the road from me, and although Catherine lives on the south shore, we had a lot to talk about and I'm sure it won't be our last visit. Suzie is relatively new to Montreal, and has a brand new blog that you should check out too!
And no, I did not leave empty handed: I grabbed this Burda Classics and a few envelope patterns....
|Yes, I know that one of them is a maternity pattern. No, I don't ever plan on being pregnant again.|
....and got a graphic shirting weight cotton in white, turquoise and black. Me Made May showed me that I need more patterned tops, so this should fit the bill. Shannon bought the same fabric, so we'll have to do a compare/contrast when we've both made it up! I also bought this fake batik for a home deco project, but that's too boring to blog about, so you'll probably never see it again.
We are planning another meetup for the summer, which takes me to my next item.....
|I'm putting her avatar here because you'll probably recognize it from blog comments. And because it's super awesome.|
