So many finished projects, so little time to…..figure out how to take pictures of myself with a cellphone wearing finished garments. So, here’s a bunch of other stuff.

The title pretty much says it all.
So, until I can figure it out, I am going to post about what I’m currently obsessed with.

Chew

CHEW.
I
 purchased volumes 5 and 6 of Chew months ago, but I have been too busy lately to pick them up and read ’em.
I decided the other night, after hand stitching down the my modified Kim Dress bodice, that instead of mindlessly surfing the internet I would pay some attention to my comics.

Well, since it’s seriously been WAY too long since I’ve read Chew, I was lost as soon as I opened the book.
So of course I had go back to book one.

Boy, am I glad I did. I am truly in love with this series.
If any of you read comics and haven’t check it out, you don’t know what you’re missing.
GO READ IT. NOW.

LESLIE.

Continuing my intensely satisfying love affair with Leslie Knope and Parks and Rec.
Thank you, Hulu, for your two episode upload a week.. THANK YOU.
My relationship with this show is better than most people I know with their *actual* relationships.
porch flowers
FLOWERS.
I’ve been obsessed with keeping fresh flowers around.
There’s just something about seeing them on my porch when I leave for work in the morning, that makes me extremely happy.
Our landlord recently got rid of a bunch of crappy bushes, so this spring I am going to plant a bunch of Zinnias and Dahlias.
Constant flowers in bloom, I can’t wait.
LIPSTICK.
But, that’s another post.
Seriously. I could probably do an entire series.

WIP.
Yes, those are eggs.
Also, I guess I can’t call this a WIP anymore, because it’s finally finished.
I mentioned earlier that I hand stitched the bodice hem. I remembered how much I love hand stitching, especially while sneaking off with Ms. Knope.
Can’t wait to get some photos of this so I can finally blog about it.
I WANNA TALK ABOUT IT SO BADLY.

Kim Dress: An Inspiration

The internet is a dark place.
I like to think of the Sewing Blogosphere as a star that brightens up the darkness.

A bright, beautiful, glowing star, that brings us things like By Hand London, and the patterns they produce.
For example:
The Kim Dress

I haven’t been this inspired in so long.
So many amazing girls have taken this pattern and ran so far with it.
I. Can’t. Even.

Well, I can, and I will.

Anyway, here:

kim dress - dolly clackett

How can anyone NOT be inspired by this make. I may or may not semi-secretly stalk this lovely girls blog. Over the past few months of keeping up with her and her sewventures, she has easily become my favorite blogger.

kim dress - sew sweetness

I stumbled upon this blog, just be searching through the Kim Dress images on google. The pintucks make this version suuuuuuuuuper adorable.

kim dress - sew curvy

YES! I just…..it’s so……yes. I love it. I plan to keep up with these really cutsie girls over at Curvy Sewing Collective.

kim dress - true bias

True Bias’ is so floral and floofy; it’s perfect.

kim dress - dixie diy

The tulip skirt version that Dixie DIY did is so insanely flattering. It’s not usually my style, but this has easily convinced me to at least give it a shot.

kim dress - bhl

And last, but obviously not least, the innovative girls over at BHL themselves. So wonderful.

Like I said:

I can, and I will.
