You know her as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North in The Wizard of Oz, but before that, Billie Burke (b. Aug 7, 1884) was the famous Ziegfeld beauty who married her boss, Florenz Ziegfeld himself! She then went on to play ditzy matrons in countless golden era Hollywood films, including such classics as Dinner at Eight and Father of the Bride.
What better way to celebrate the 132nd birthday of this screen legend than to play a very special round of the sewing blogosphere's favorite pattern-naming game, MPB's exclusive NAME THAT PATTERN!
You already know how to play NAME THAT PATTERN: I post photos of patterns I've found online, and you give them funny names, the sillier the better. As always, we have some amazing gifts in store, including an all-expenses-paid, five-day/four-night Acapulco vacation with Texas Senator Ted Cruz!
With no further delay, let's get started.
Please join me in giving a warm welcome to PATTERN #1!
Can't be topped? Here's PATTERN #2?!
We're not done yet -- here's PATTERN #4!
Last and, arguably, least -- in fabric that is -- PATTERN #5!
BUT WAIT! As always, we have our BONUS PATTERN for those seeking extra credit and extra giggles. It's exotic PATTERN #6!
Friends, I hope you've enjoyed this very special Billie Burke birthday edition of NAME THAT PATTERN. I'll be playing, of course, as well as Michael, and anybody else I can corral around the apartment. Remember, you can give names to any or all of the above patterns, but only those who name all six patterns will be eligible for the Ted Cruz vacation.
Ready to roll? On your marks, get set, NAME THAT PATTERN!
