Praying and praying…


So yeah, I’ve spending a lot of time this week on my knees… praying. Why? Because I really want my Advanced Ladies Tailoring class to happen and we seem to be short 5 people of the minimum required for class to start. Stinkin’ SJPP wait until last week Tuesday or Wednesday to call applicants and tell them that the class supposed to start Tuesday, August 28 and you have to pay by Friday, August 24 to get in the class.

Yes, I do mean Tuesday that just gone was the first day of class and only 5 people showed up, including me.

And you would know, that I got my acceptance letter on Monday gone. As in Monday, August 27. In this letter, the deadline for payment was stated as today, Friday, August 31. Clearly the person who did the calling was not the person who typed the letter. Clearly.

These jokers wait until the last minute to tell people that the class is on and that you were accepted. No, seriously… wunna insane? And people got children to send school? Two of my Basic Ladies Tailoring classmates, who had wanted to do Advanced and weren’t getting any positive communication from the school, went ahead and spend what little money they had on their children school stuff because they thought class wasn’t going to happen. Where are they going to manufacture this money from, SJPP? Stupseeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I’m really praying that at least 5 more people paid today… praying… and praying… and praying…

In related prayer news, it seems BurdaStyle has answered the many prayers of its plus sized members and released 8 new full figured patterns… BOOM!!!!!!

The collection is called “Everyday Equestrian” and is a dollop of rustic country girl meets a dash of romantic city girl… Now, I’m an island girl and we really don’t do frilly, so I’m not a fan of most of the patterns, but I am in love with these 2 jackets:

Burdastyle Blouson Jacket (Plus Size) Pattern 09/2012 #135
BurdaStyle Military Jacket (Plus Size) Pattern 09/2012 #138

I’m thinking that the styling of the outfits are the biggest draws to these two items, but I’m really loving both of these jackets!!! And the colours!!!! The taupe is truly gorgeous in the blouson jacket and the navy just makes the military jacket! I can’t wait to see what the Burda community does with these!!!

And if my blasted Advanced class can occur, I could actually try to incorporate both of these patterns into my class projects and ask my tutor to assist in making them a reality! Yup, still praying… and praying…

In the mean time, I’ll just add these two patterns to cart and stash them to tackle later… my sewing proficiency aint nowhere near the level required for these jackets yet…

Oh Lisa, I do hope you call and say that class is on… praying some more…

Enjoy your weekend!
