Exciting news!!

Today I've been featured on Colette Patterns' blog as this week's Featured Seamstress. I feel so legit!

Also, I want to give a big thank you to these lovely ladies: Neeno of Sew Me Love, Marie of A Sewing Odyssey, and Leah of Struggle Sews a Straight Seam for passing the Sunshine Award on to me!

Per the requirements that go along with the award, here are a few of my favorite things:
  • Favorite color: teal (can you tell from my blog??)
  • Favorite animal: a tie between sloths and kitties!
  • Favorite number:  18 - my birthday is the 18th
  • Favorite non-alcoholic drink: iced tea -- sweet or un-sweet
  • Facebook or Twitter:  facebook -- I'm not cool or exciting enough for twitter ;)
  • My passion: um, sewing? ...and old things
  • Favorite pattern: I don't have a favorite sewing pattern, yet. I have a favorite fabric pattern, though -- polka dots! (duh)
  • Favorite day of the week: Friday -- you can stay up late (sewing!) and you know you've got the whole weekend ahead of you
  • Getting or giving presents: I love giving presents. I keep a section in my little notebook that's always with me for gift ideas for my friends/family, so I can jot ideas down whenever they come to me.
  • Favorite flower:  ranunculus  
  • Favorite celebrity role model: I don't know if I have a role model, per se, but I have major girl crushes on Adele, Alison Brie, Katy Perry, and Zooey Deschanel.

Also, a shout out to Frau Tipmatic! She's awarded me the Versatile Blogger award. What a doll! You can check out the list of seven random facts about me here, from when it was passed on to me before.

I think I'm supposed to pass these awards on to a whole list of other bloggers (10ish for the Sunshine and 15 for the Versatile??), but, in rather un-sunshiney fashion (oops!), I'm going to ignore that and simply direct you over to my favorite blogs on the left side of the page. Please take a second to look them over and click on one or two you've not visited before! (I really do read them like it's my job)  :)

Thanks everyone!!
