In the air

In the air, originally uploaded by fmirela.

on the way to SLC from FLL, two hats, one for my friend Oana, one for me.
on the way back to FLL another little hat for a little girl named Alexandra. She drew a pretty thank you note for me 🙂

Yarn: Country something wool blend. 2 sheins
Hook: 5mm

I really liked working with this pattern. Except the hat is very thin in this yarn, not really for winter days, but then again, there’s no winter around here where I am…

La Mia Boutique

and no magazines…

Just thought I would share this with anyone considering….

I have subscribed in October 2009 to La Mia Boutique through

Obviously a ridiculously high price for a magazine, payed the whole amount through PayPal. I thought it would be worth it since I really like the contents and the patterns are move innovating the Burda…I still hope this is not a hoax and I will see my fave mag soon…

Obviously I have not received any magazine yet and we are getting close to the end of the year…

I did receive an email reply in the middle of November, more than a month ago, from saying that I will receive the first magazine in the main by next week and that it is traveling… there was no magazine and now I wrote another angry letter hoping to get better customer service this time.

This is my second failed attempt to get the magazine, first was with IdeeCouture got 2 crappy magazines for 37 Euros, very expensive, one with Children’s clothing patterns and the other with quilting. I do not sew any of that…

I hope I would have better luck this time and that you will soon see another happier post about this subject…

right now I’m feeling disappointed and worried, hoping for a reply and checking my mail box daily.
