2013 ESSENTIAL TOPS SEW-A-LONG FINISHED PROJECTS

September 16, 2010

IT'S GOOD NEWS TO ME...

I do so LOVE my blog! I count it an honor and a privilege that people find it worthy of stopping by to just look in, comment, or answer one my many questions. As with many other aspects of life, I have to refer back to a quote from Mary Kay Ash - you know, the real Mary Kay. "Help enough people get what they want, and you will automatically get what you want". It is my sincere hope that someone somewhere will be able to gain some tidbit of sewing information from my blog.

I received information this evening that my blog has been added to Online Colleges.org's list of 50 Best Blogs for Sewing Students. Well, that is good news to me! There are quite a few other blogs that I recognize on this list.

I've been considering several new features that I want to incorporate into my blog. Just got to work out a few kinks before I do, so be on the lookout...

I've been mentally battling to decide whether or not to do a Textile Entry at our local fair this year. You might remember that I entered 5 items back in 2008 that yielded 5 prize ribbons and a small check. So this morning I pulled 5 hand sewn items from the closet, and I think I'm going for it again this year. This will add some sewing related excitement to my life this weekend.

I worked up the first muslin for my Lady Gray coat (all is going well) and will be posting pictures soon. I can already visualize myself wearing this coat...

  1. I just came back from the fair. Go for it! (I once won a blue ribbon at the Puyallup fair for my bread and butter pickles. I always brag that they are award-winning pickles. And then people make fun of me.) And congrats on the blog mention!
