Stitching Spotlights 7.9.2010

Can you feel it? The days are already getting shorter. I love these mid-summer nights that start blending into early Fall. Sorry for the short absence. Things on my end have been a bit trying. We had a layoff at work and it was someone who was close to me and a good friend. Grrrrhhhh... I just hate stuff like that. I hope those types of things aren't happening where you are. On a happier note, I'm in awe of this lovely number from Gertie.

It's stunning! She's got the perfect fit and the sweep and style of the skirt is just fabulous. It looks so fabulously put together and chic. I'm in love with that luscious color on her too! Ahhhh! I can't say enough wonderful things about this creation! Gertie, you take the cake!

I've been following The Sew Weekly in my Google Reader and hadn't noticed anything come through for awhile. I decided to check out Mena's blog to see if something was up and she's been posting all sorts of fun and I haven't even seen them. I saw this and fell in love with the sweetness of it. And Kudos! for the name, Mena! The Pin-Up Board - Hardy Har Har! Love it! I've re-imported her blog into my reader and I think it should be working fine now. If you've noticed this, you might want to try re-importing as well, her stuff is just way to good to miss.

I've heard so much about the Burda Style book that I'm starting get antsy about it. All of the fun folks who are apart of it will have top-notch things to offer, I'm sure. Can you believe that we have to wait to Fall 2011 to have it in our hands?

Have a very happy weekend, with lots of sewing!
