I subscribe to a lot of blogs containing various information and tips from cooking to knitting to sewing. Today, I read a blog entry from Skamama, Julie Armstrong Holetz who wrote the book Uncommon Crochet that I mentioned in a previous blog entry. I love her crochet patterns because they are so hip and modern. Now Holetz is the editor of a new crochet magazine from Great Britain called Inside Crochet Magazine (http://www.insidecrochet.co.uk/issue1.html) and the first issue goes on sale March 27, but you can go onto the website and pre-order. Inside Crochet also on Facebook and Raverly.
Burda Fashion has its April issue preview online and saw this dress that pique my intererst. I noticed that the dresses for the spring and summer are long. It’s a gown without being formal, but stylish and yes the c word comfortable. I can see myself going out to dinner with friends or a nice outdoor party. I am thinking about getting the April issue and add this dress to my inspiration notebook of things to sew.
I read a comment that someone left me yesterday. Her name is Maranda Burke and her blog is (http://mandmstudio.blogspot.com/). I took an opportunity to visit her blog as she visited mine and realized that she has a shop online (http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6837291) with some great fabrics that takes you into a world of crafty imagination. There is a print that I thinking about purchasing to make that Sushi Apron from “The Perfect Apron” I purchased last week. I also see that tunic in my fabric. Maranda is also have a giveaway of some fabric, so just visit her blog and entry.
My last thing to see is from www.burdastyle.com. It’s called the Paloa Dress. It’s a nice wrap dress and the pattern cost $4.00 which you can download as a PDF file. I see this dress with a pair of trousers if some us have knees that have gone south.
I guess that is all I have for now with stuff to see. Enjoy everyone!
