Blog posts of the week; a semi-regularly published collection of my favorite blog posts from the past week. (Or however long it's been since the last time I posted my favorite blog posts.)
1 Ball Projects
In an effort to interest folks in some of the nicer, more expensive yarns, Jelly Wares is trying to come up with some one-ball projects. I tend to avoid pricey yarns, especially when you need 6 or more for a project. The little girls dress featured in this blog post seems like the perfect solution.
(By the way, I still don't know what to do with the yarn in the photo - approximately 187 yds, 4 ozs of rayon fingering weight yarn. Any ideas?)
Summer Sewing Wrap-Up
This is from SewChic. The thing that excited me about this post was the bridesmaids dresses at the end. I love the style and color of the dress that Jessica made, especially the rose at the waist.
Customize Your Blog's Background With Your Own Image
For those of you who don't keep up with the Blogger Blog, Blogger has rolled out a new feature for everyone (It's been available in Draft for a while.) This feature allows you to upload your own image to use as a blog background. I have tried to do this before, by playing with the HTML. Let's just say that it's a good thing I have a separate, private blog to experiment on. I did play a little with my background and layout, so let me know if anything shows up oddly, is missing, or broken. (I am aware that the drop down button for 'completed projects' is hidden. Just click on the words and the menu will drop down.)
One other thing before I end this post - I am planning reopen my Etsy shop sometime this week.
