I’ll just admit it. I’m having way too much fun with blogging right now, even with as few postings as I’ve done so far. I’ve spent a great deal of my adult life writing, but it was never the kind of writing that anyone outside of a hospital, government agency, or law office would ever get to read, and always absolutely devoid of imagination. Being able to write about whatever I want, in whatever format pleases me is a nice change.
Not to be all output though, I do really enjoy reading other people’s work. I get to drool over their creations and learn from the work they have put into learning how to do things. It started with admiring a few projects on Burda Style, but has since grown into an ever expanding blog reading list. On my must-read list right now is Lady Katza (yes that’s her picture down below) of Peanut Butter Macrame. She has the awesomely generous spirit to be doing not just one give-away, but five whole days worth. Not only that, but she’s got the good stuff. It started on Friday with a classy vintage Vogue pattern, and so far she’s up to Tuesday with a pattern that is not only retro-tastic, but is a size difficult to find in vintage wear. (someone is hoarding those size 38″ busted patterns)
As a bonus, you can also find info on her inspiration for this incredibly cute gingham dress, which I would totally wear, especially if I had a pink wig.
