A Peek at my BlogRoll - September 2012

I would like to introduce you to a fellow (?) Florida blgger on my Blog Roll:

Stitches and Seams - Miscellaneous Musings on an Obsession ... and other things that get in the way.

I met Debbie Cook when we were both members of a local Pattern Master Boutique (PMB) user group, which I'm pretty sure was before 2006.  She also appears on a popular sewing web site called Pattern Review.

My favorite part of her blog is the tutorials (click here).  Her tutorials are grouped by Projects, Techniques, and Alterations.  She has several alterations tutorials for full bust alteration, aka FBA - all useful!  Really, ALL her tutorials are useful, so give them a try.

The napkin holder I made (click here) was inspired by her tutorial to copy some IKEA bins (click here).

Debbie has blogged mostly about sewing, but sometimes real life intervenes.  For example, she recently finished her first year in the most awesome job ever!

She shares with her readers whenever she buys shoes, or fabric, or even moves house with lovely Florida plants:

Debbie seems to make lots of clothes.  When she makes herself a new dress, she shares portions of its creation, and then - of course - the wearing thereof:

The same is true for tops and skirts:

I hope you will visit Debbie's blog and find great enjoyment from it.

  1. How wonderful that two sewing bloggers got to meet in person. It's a great way to know one another from afar....and also nearby!

  2. Meeting other sewing gals is such a wonderful thing, isn't it? Thank you so much for your kind wishes on my blog too :)
