Sometimes Trying New Things can Really Suck

I just wanted some new patterns.  I had two lovely pieces of linen for blouses.  The closest fabric store is about fifteen miles from here.  I thought I would look on-line.  I found BurdaStyle.  I saw several blouses that I really liked.  If I could, I would have ordered physical patterns.  They were only $5.99.  It was a simple pattern, but still had over twenty pages.  I printed out the first half, flipped them, and printed out the rest in an effort to save paper.  I laid them out on my cutting table and traced them on Do Sew.  Then I had to add seams and hems before cutting.  All this took days due to my arthritis.  I was ready to scream.  Putting it all together was no laughing matter either.  It would have been all right if they were like their printed patterns with which I have no problem.  But they weren’t.  As a matter of fact, they were so poor that I pretty much it together on my own.  This really upset me.  I really like Burda patterns.  I have several.  Needless to say, I won’t be downloading any more patterns.  It really saddens me because there were so many more available on-line then hard copy patterns.
