  1. Kinda disappointed after going through most of these patterns and finding essentially no patterns. They’re mostly just tutorials from amateur blogs, featuring geometrically impossible instructions like “pin the top edge from the folded edge to the edge (not folded), then sew the top edge to the folded edge” and frequent “visual aids”, all of which could be captioned “First, sew the poncho; Second, omg look so good in this xoxo me #bohemian #alternative #spiritual #LowQualityButPerkyAndAttractive”

    No doubt, some of them are nice designs and eventually (once you decipher the monologue) are fairly straightforward… but these are what I’d expect to see on divorcedcraftmom.com or yogurtbabe.org, and I’ve honestly seen better patterns in chronic alcoholism.

  2. Been working on original design for competition quilt. Put it aside to make some of your ponchos and a cape (winter is coming). Like balm on my brain. Love you. Thanks.❤
