May the Fourth be with you!

Happy Star Wars day, y'all!

This weekend is Scottish Fest - we went yesterday, but stayed home today. I have work this week, and we're taking the aunt shopping, so today is school so we don't fall behind. Plus, today is hotter than yesterday - and yesterday was HOT. And also Free Comic Book day. :lol:

I have to give a shout-out to Alter Years. I have a catalog from them dated 1998 - yes, *1998*. There is a pattern in there that I have been hunting for since 2000 - Alter Years vanished around then, and I couldn't find anyone else that carried it. I've googled it over the years (Suitability's Bombachas pattern), but NO ONE has it.

About 1 month ago, I found Suitability's website and sent an email. Nope, they don't have it anymore. :sigh: On a whim, I googled Alter Years, and found them. So I sent them an email....and 3 days ago she got back to me.

She had gone warehouse diving, and FOUND MY PATTERN!!!!!!!

I am excited, and grateful - she didn't have to do that for me, but I am ever so glad she did.

So. If you are in need of any type of costuming pattern, check out Alter Years. The customer service is top-notch!

Gotta run - stuff to do!
