I've already decided to take part in Tilly's One Week, One Pattern from March 24-30, using a self-drafted knit-top pattern (which is also the basis for the spring polka-dot dress). Then there's Julia Bobbin's MadMan dress challenge, which would actually work really well with a dress that I've had on my to-sew list for over a year, anyway! And let's not even mention Sarah's Sew Cinematic and Sew Colette (which, incidentally, is already on its third garment, the lovely Truffle dress, while I found out this weekend that I need to buy some more interfacing to finish my first item, the Meringue skirt). So many projects, so little time! And thinking about which one to tackle first actually makes me procrastinate, because I can't decide...
However, a lot of very awesome things have happened in the last couple of weeks. For one, I received three awards. Three!
The Liebster Blog award was given to me by Becky from Sew and So, of knitting and rain coat fame. Thank you, Becky! The rules are to give the award to five blogs that you enjoy reading, that have less than 200 followers.
Vicki Kate from VickiKateMakes
Lisette from What would Nancy Drew wear?
Liza Jane from LizaJaneSews
Maider from Masustak eguzkitan
Also, my dear readers, I would like to point out that this award is actually German in origin and has no connection whatsoever to lobsters or other crustaceans. Really. "Liebster" actually means "dearest" in my mother tongue, another translation could be "favorite". :)
I've also received a Sunshine award from Donna from Nid de Tissus. Thank you! :) This one even comes with questions, and is supposed to go to 10 blogs that bring sunshine into my life.
Favorite Animal: Cats.
Favorite Number: Pie. Uh, pi, I mean. Closely followed by e and 8.
Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Water. Cappuccino. Herbal spice tea.
Facebook or Twitter: Facebook.
My Passion: Aside from sewing? Probably eating really well. And music.
Getting or Giving Presents: Depends. I love both giving and receiving thoughtful presents. ;)
Favorite Pattern: I can't quite decide between the Colette Macaron and the Colette Crepe dress. I love wearing both!
Favorite Day of the Week: Currently Saturday, predictably.
Favorite Flower: Pink tulips. Although I'd be just as happy to get a bouquet of edible blossoms or fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme.
Favorite celebrity role model: I really don't keep up with celebrities. I have inspirational postcards of Einstein and the Dalai Lama hanging over my desk, though. Does that count?
Ali from The Wardrobe, Reimagined
Jessica from A Yen For Craft
Sigrid from Analog Me
Karen from Did You Make That
Marie from A Sewing Odyssey
Reana Louise from Curves, Patterns and Pins
Abby from Sew Get Dressed
If you don't do awards or have already received it, feel free to ignore this, though!
Ok, three time's the charm! Dee from Seams Sustainable has given me a Versatile Blogger award. I've actually already gotten that one a while ago, so I won't answer the questions again. But thank you, Dee!
I actually wanted to tell you about a few more awesome things that recently happened, but I was supposed to be in bed 45 minutes ago, so I'll postpone that until next time. ;) I'll leave you with a picture of last Sunday's outfit and hope you'll have a fantastic week!
|yay for spring weather!|
