Blogs I follow

As you can see I stopped blogging for a while.  Having twins have not been an easy task.  I had to cut back on some of my sewing but now I am back to doing some projects.  I have been inspired and bought some new patterns and fabrics and I did some pillowcase dresses for my daughter on the weekend.  No... pillowcases is not all I planned on doing lately but my daughter has taken over part of my sewing room. 

Anyway, I wanted to mention that I was looking at some of the blogs I follow and I noticed that a lot of my fellow bloggers have not write anything for more than 6 months.  I know life keeps going on and people might find other interests.  On the other hand, I noticed some bloggers just keep getting better at the sewing skills and at their blogging.   Here are three of my favorite bloggers:

One blogger I admire is Sewl Sista #1.  She is very modern and I like the way she gets inspired and project her ideas into beautiful garment.  Every time I visit her blog I get inspired to continue sewing.

Another blogger I follow is Sharon Sews who have been sewing for years and have been published on many sewing magazines. 

One of the most impressive persons is Peter Lappin who started sewing not so long ago and has 1503 followers.  He was published by Vogue recently.  I enjoy reading his blog.

I will continue to write about three favorite bloggers each month so that others can get inspired by then too.

I bought a lot of new fabric

I am not going to post pictures right now but I guess I will back to sewing at my sewing room. I went to Joann Fabrics last Sunday during the Superbowl and I spent 70 dollars in fabric.
Surprisingly, Joann was totally crowded. I guess I was not the only one who decided it was a better idea to go there than to stay at home watching tv.

I also received my first Fabric. com order today. I am super excited. I ordered fabrics for my little daughter. I ordered some Cat in the Hat and the Very Hungry Caterpillar fabric. I will be making some Dr. Seuss pillow case dresses for next month and nother apron knot dress. Those dresses are selling so expensive right now at Etsy and I was tempted to buy some but I found out that for the price of the dress I could buy enough fabric to sew three dresses. Yes, that is right.
Good for them who are selling them and making money, but for us in the sewing community paying $30 dollars for a dress I can make myself is a big "no-no". Mmm, I will be posting the details about this project soon.

So finally I found some excitement and I do have a lots of project that I will be posting soon.
I will be washing the fabrics tonight and posting pictures on the following days.
