Wishing I could sew and tango.....

While at the Knitting and Stitching show I saw a so many people at the Sewing Today stand. So I went to look for myself. There were so many sewing patterns selling for £5 for 4. I bought some dress patterns because they looked so pretty. The silly thing is that I did not know that the dress patterns come in different sizes. Two of the patterns where for the correct size A (6-8-10-12-14) and BB (8-10-12-14).
The other two were totally the wrong size FF (16-18-20-22) and EE (14-16-18-20). Since I'm just going to just look at the covers and photos (I can't sew clothes) I guess it doesn't matter too much.
On the knitting side I've started knitting some Christmas presents, so I can't put the photos on the blog yet, well not until after Christmas.

On the dancing side, well we learnt the Tango and the Jive this week. I love the Tango, its so dramatic and yet graceful. I like the fact that you don't have to look at your partner, it's less embarrassing. The Jive is so bouncy, not my favourite dance, but a good workout. Next time we do the Jive, I'll make sure to wear trainers and not my high heels. All good fun.

I recently bought some patterns too and I really want to start sewing. Maybe we could do it together!

BTW - My little girl is 5 and she loves making things!

Now you have me wondering whether the few patterns that I have bought are the right size... Oh well, they're only gathering dust right now anyway, as I've been too scared to attempt them...

You are so good that you go to classes. Still not managed to convince W about the salsa class.
Which one are you going to start making from the pattern? It would be so cool if we could make a clothes together! :D
