What Happened to the German Pattern Experiment?
It has been quite some time since I had my last German Pattern Experiment post, and some of you may be wondering what happened to this series. After all, it showed up out of no where like a thief in the night and as quickly as it came, it was gone.
So what happened? Life got in the way a bit. I love the idea of sewing everything out of my German pattern magazines, but I found myself at a point where there were a few more practical things that I wanted to make for myself. In addition, there were some fantastic sew alongs that I just had to participate in. Since you already know that I am pretty slow when it comes to sewing, it is easy to see how this project of mine quickly fell to the back burner.
My first solution was to ask my hubby if it could quit my job for just one year. That way I could sew like crazy and just get it all out of my system. He gave me this look like I had just asked if he thought I was capable of solving world hunger . . . today. (In case you can't picture it, he somehow got his face to say "you've absolutely got to be kidding" and "definitely not happening" all at once). I tried, and I was thinking of all of you - truly.
If you are interested in the future of my German Pattern Experiment, rest assured that it is not over! I will dabble in it a bit more this year and I will be converting more of the patterns into free patterns for you fabulous readers. It's not a priority right now, but I will do more with it this year.
Thanks for your patience with this! Many of you who speak German have left comments saying you are willing to help with translating instructions if I need it, so I may be asking for your help.
