    It feels so long since I’ve made a post…  But things are lookin’ up. *Weeeee* I finished my cluster analysis for work, so all that’s left for me to do is to present it to folks.  (Eeeek!) I actually managed to leave work on time yesterday, for the first time in weeks!  I was soo excited, that… Read More »

    Sewing Eye Candy Posted on April 22, 2011

    As you may have gathered from some of my posts this month, my day job is keeping me really busy, but it should calm down by the end of next week so I can get back to my regular schedule once again.  As a result, I don’t have much to show you guys on my sewing related… Read More »

    Stitchcraft Feb 1951: Cami with Ribbons Posted on April 20, 2011

    Hey Folks!  Ever since the first stitchcraft magazine made its way to my apartment, I’ve been scouring the internet in search of the copyright information for this publication.  For US copyright it seems that anything roughly between the late 40′s and early 60′s is kinda fuzzy.  But since this publication is from the UK it’s even… Read More »

  • Modern Vintage Chicago Market Posted on April 18, 2011

    I had such a busy weekend (with work) I wasn’t able to sew one stitch.  :|    Luckily, I had just one magical excuse to leave my cluster analysis work: the Modern Vintage Chicago event hosted by Chicago’s Randolph Street Antique Market in Plumber’s Hall.  Thanks to Tasha of By Gum, By Golly for getting me out of the house because I… Read More »

    Thoughtful Planning: April Posted on April 15, 2011

    Every since Colette’s Spring Palette Challenge has ended, I feel as if I’ve been floundering as to what I should make next.  I have so many patterns I love and I feel as if I want to make them all in the month of April.  As I continue to add your fun blogs to my rss reader,… Read More »

    Hey peeps.  I know I’ve posted up each item I made for the Colette Spring Palette Challenge on my blog, but I wanted to put it all together in one place, just like I did for my initially inspiration board. Here was my initial sewing inspiration board, which does include some of the articles I… Read More »

  • Second Giveaway Winner Posted on April 13, 2011

    Thank you so much to everyone who posted up comments in my 2nd giveaway. As a recap I asked the question: What project are you most looking forward to working on this spring/summer.  I’m just curious what you lovely ladies are doing but more importantly it lets me get to know each and every one of… Read More »

    Baconfest 2011 Posted on April 12, 2011

    I’m not sure how I initially came across this, but it just sounded silly, so I passed off the link to my husband, Felix.  And of course he thought the idea was awesome and managed to snag us two tickets.  So yes, I went to Baconfest this past weekend.   Basically what happens is they… Read More »

    Stitchcraft Magazine: June 1957 Posted on April 7, 2011

    I only recently came across the Vintage Stitchcraft magazine on etsy and I’m officially in love. It only makes sense that there were knitting magazines back in the day, just like there are today.  But for some reason I just never put 2 and 2 together until I saw some pop up in my etsy… Read More »

    The first thing I have to say is I’m now addicted to knitting up vintage jumpers. Here’s the original Caledonia jumper pattern I chose to use for my first vintage jumper. I omitted the plaid design, but I do love it, and would consider making another up with that included. This is my very last project for Colette’s… Read More »
