The Wednesday Showcase

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!
Wow have my spirits been soaring! It's sunny, it's warm(if you call 50 degrees warm, and I now do!!!), and I am now hearing the cardinals sing in the morning. Spring is on its way!
I have 2 lovely and very creative ladies to introduce you to today.
First up is Duckndam of http://www.duckndam.blogspot.com/ She loves to sew and she lives in San Francisco so she has access to fabulous fabric stores like Britex.
I just love when the creative process is shared with us. Take a look at her sketch book. Not only does she sketch out what she would like to do, but she includes fabric swatches too.
 She makes lots of cute tops,
 and makes great use of her scraps!
You know how you feel when everything just seems to work out perfectly? Well, this was one of those tops for her. She said that her smile looks smug, I think it looks like, I'm so happy!!!!
Be sure to check out Duckndam. I know you will enjoy getting to know her.

Next up is another west coast girl, Helena who lives in Seattle. You can find her at http://www.grayallday.com/ . She says that since it rains so much in Seattle, many of her days are gray, so she stays in and sews and in turn creates her own sunshine.
Helena won the 3rd round of the Pattern Review Sewing Bee with her remake of the Winter Street Dress. Such a great piece! Check out the asymmetrical hem flounce.
For those of you who do not know Helena, she has a great pattern to add to her creative endeavors, the Sandpoint Top. It's an very feminine and graceful top that really showcases the back. You can find the pattern HERE.

She's also working on another fun pattern, this fabulous pair of pants. Don't you just love the fabric?!!!
Helena also has a fun feature on her blog called Sew It Chic in a Week. You can read all about it and learn how to link up HERE.

So once again, 2 very talented, creative and busy ladies!!
Hope your week is going well and that there's a little sunshine in your day that makes you smile.
Happy Wednesday!
