St. Denis

Since we only have five months left here in Paris Chris and I are trying to be sure we see as much as we can. One of the places that has been on our list the longest was Basilica St. Denis. . .

“who doesn’t love a dollar section?”

With all the “fun” pattern grading I’ve been doing, I thought we should do a pattern of the week feature.  This pattern would be offered for a dollar for that week only.  When I started Sewing In No Mans Land it was with the intention of offering free patterns, which before grading classes, program purchasing and downloading issues, I was able to do.  I still want these patterns to be available to all creators!  I thought this would be a perfect way to accomplish this!  So every Friday we will . . .

I am so excited to host another giveaway for Sassy Steals! I often think about the old adage “what you obtain cheaply you esteem lightly”. While I generally agree with this, I think there is one exception: a great steal. When I hit a jack pot sale I am on cloud nine!

Today they are generously offering one reader a $50 gift card! All you need to do is . . .

st patricks day lucky penny revisited

I am sure you are all SHOCKED right out of your knickers to hear that St. Patricks day is a big deal around our house. Our house gets hit hard by Leprechauns who turn over furniture, turn anything they can green (toilet water, milk… the usual) and generally make a HUGE mess. But they also leave behind some of their gold coins and other treats, so I guess fair is fair. I have been thinking about making the girls new Lucky Penny dresses (have you seen the latest JCrew ones have glittery layers oh la la!). I thought now would be a good time for a repost in case any of ya’ll want a quick project that doesn’t require hemming whoot whoot! Yay for material that doesn’t . . .
