Sharing the Love

I was nominated for this super cute award by Lori, Sigrid, Ann and Dana; Thank You! I love all your blogs, in fact, I love too many blogs and hence my feed is getting out of control :) What to do...  Well, if that's the worst of my problems, YAY, lucky me :))

Here are the rules:
1. Put the logo on your blog or post
2. Nominate at least 10 blogs which show great Attitude and/or Gratitude!
3. Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let them know that they have received this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person from whom you received your award.

This award has been granted to a good portion of my sewing sistahs so I'm using this opportunity to share the love with blogs I recently added/discovered.

Rosanne of She's Sew Unusual: She is expecting so head on over and congratulate!

Gry of From the Stash: She's moving from Copenhagen to Oxford, another congrats is in order!

Jenni of Sew YLD: She JUST started a blog, many of you already know her from Pattern Review under the name Yorkshire Lass. Please go and welcome her!


And to answer a couple of questions from last post:

RachelMM would like to know where I found my gravity feed iron:
I bought it online from CleanerSupply, here's a direct link
It's fantastic, and so is their costumer service. When it turned out the water tank was faulty, they shipped a new one within days.
I go a lot of information over on Pattern Review from reading the boards, and here's a link where you'll find the info on exactly how to install the hook in the ceiling. I printed it out and gave it to the guy who did the work for me:

Rosanne wanted to know how I found my inspiration coat:
I've been using the yoox website as an inspiration destination for a long time. They carry many high-end items from a myriad of designers and their search feature makes it so easy. I usually pick a main category, then search by HIGH PRICE FIRST :)) That's when you get the good stuff! When I find something I like, I bookmark that item so it will be there to view in close-up even after it sold. Here's an example:
Bluemarine Coat on yoox (that I knocked off last year)
So make sure you bookmark!


  1. What an excellent way to find inspiration.
    Thank you for sharing the yoox website :)

  2. Thanks for sharing your inspiration. I am off to the site now.

  3. Thanks for the YOOX website. Very inspirational! Just what I've been looking for.
