Well, it has been quite a week as I've been to the emergency room twice. Once is bad enough, but twice is not nice. The nasty cold I've been dealing with for far too long turned into a rather awful and quite painful sinus infection. Due to the tumor I had, and the resulting reconstructive surgery, I have lots of scar tissue in my sinuses, making the whole situation just that much more fun ;) The second trip was just a stupid thing. I was moving a piece of furniture that had a metal brace under a drawer. I hit it just right and sliced my finger open. This is one situation where I hope things don't come in 3's!!!!
Now on to something a little more fun :)
I am so happy to see that Erin of Sie macht has her blog up and running. I had hoped to showcase her blog last week, but she was in the process of preparing a shiny new blog. So it's up, and I think you are going to really enjoy meeting her!
Erin is the mother of 2. She lives near Milwaukee, Wisconsin, such a beautiful state. Her life has had quite the transformation over the last few years. You can read all about it HERE on her about page.
Erin is absolutely adorable. She has quite the passion for sewing. You can find a fun and informative new post each and every Thursday. The picture above is from a post she did on researching sewing tables. It's a very informative post, so if you are thinking about a new table, by all means, check out her information.
She made up the Erin Skirt and the Molly Top from Sew Over It and loved both. It goes without saying that she looks super cute in both :)
Erin has also been doing a little quilting. Hey, she does live in Wisconsin where a quilt is not only decorative, but necessary! Just check out the picture below.
Erin took a blogging break...for FOUR years!!! She came back last March, so by all means, I hope that you will pop over and give her a great big warm welcome back!
Next up is Joyce of School of Custom Clothing and Alterations. Her blog and website are not only informative, but a fabulous resource!
Joyce has a passion for fit, tailoring, and even alterations. Below is a picture of an article she did for Thread's magazine. The article was written 10 years ago, but she says that the logic remains as true today as it was then. You can find her entire article HERE. If this all seems somewhat familiar, you're right. A few weeks back, I showcased Tomasa of Sew Much Fashion. The class that she took to create her amazingly fitted pants block was from Joyce's book on creating a Pant Block.
On her blog, you'll also find info on designing pockets.
This is a woman who actually love's, not likes, to alter clothing. You can find out why HERE.
Joyce is a wonderful resource. She has a such a passion for sewing and fitting. If you would like to find out a little more about her, just click HERE. I think you'll be so happy that you did :)
Hope your week is going well. Mine can only improve from this point forward, at least that's what I'm hoping for :)
