Midnight meanderings...

It's nearing the witching hour and the husband is sneezing and coughing away in bed so I just can't bring myself to enter the sick room to sleep. It seems like the entire valley is afflicted with allergies/colds right now - insanity, I say, for moving here! Insanity! But I digress...

I found two of the most wonderful blogs that I have to share with everyone (my five readers, you know who you are and I love you):

1st: Jenny at Chronicallyuncool.blogspot.com...A keen sense of irony and the absurd, which I love in the best of folks coupled with a newfound interest in sewing. She's going to make a swim suit next, which I'm really looking forward to as we are shaped rather similarly...

2nd: Geri at Sewable.blogspot.com...I think I'm the only one in blog-land who hadn't seen this blog before now, but go now; do not pass go, do not collect $200. First off, she designed a coat and put the pattern on Burda Style open source. That in itself is cool enough, but get a load of the coat! Amazing!!! Just the line drawing is gorgeousness itself!
I'm going to have to try this coat in a lighter fabric than her wool since, you know, I live in the desert where average temps 75% of the year are upwards of 90 degrees. In other words: it's hot. All the time :( Except for today; it was only 70 degrees. Kinda cold if you ask me...

Thanks for the the shout out! I'm so glad you appreciate my absurdity. Really!

I have been inspired by your recent experiences with a sewing class. One of these days I may take a class instead of just making it up as I go along. Thanks for posting about your experiences.

Hey, found you as I figured out how to use my backlinks... I am still kind of new to blogging! I am glad you like the coat and can't wait to see you making it! It is quite exciting - don't hesitate to ask me questions or swear at me for drafting it wrong!
