Looks like its catching....

Many thanks to both Alviana over at Sewn by Alviana and Jackie at Jackie's Sewing for nominating me for the Kreativ Blogger award!!

And, as the rules go....
I have to do the following:
Copy the award to your site.
Link to the person from whom you received the award.
Nominate 7 other bloggers.
Link to those on your blog.
Leave a message on the blogs you nominated.

And the Nominees are.....

1 - Nina at NeoSewMama... she's an all-around talent!
2 - Peacock Chic... again, she has her crafty little hands in all kinds of cookie jars!
3 - Ms. C Dishmey at Wall St. by Day...... One of the many uberChic crafters I have found since I came out of the Crafter Closet.
4 - The Clever Girl, Antoinette... (yes, I know she's been nominated already, but she's so nice I'm nominating her twice!)
5 - Teasa at That's Sew Live. This was one of the first sewing blogs I found... I had no idea this world even existed! Where WAS I!?!?
6 - Geri at Sewable... she is a must read. Every Post.
.... and last but not least...
7 - My fellow New Yorker, Lashell at Starting from Scratch. She's got great style... and I should know, we shop at a lot of the same places... heehhee!

Check them all out.

Strike a pose, there's nothing to it...... Vogue!

.... loving these two new patterns they just released.

...V1090 from Michael Kors and V1086 from Tracey Reese, respectively! But you know me... I'll be waiting for my mom in Atlanta to let me know when JoAnn's has Vogue Patterns on sale... 18$ a pattern is NOT the business!!

..............And...And... AND!!!.... I successfully installed my first invisible zipper yesterday... (the term 'installed' may be a bit grandiose since I used two scrap pieces of muslin and all....)
All thanks to this handy dandy little How-To I found cruising thru YouTube the other day....
