Cloud9 Wildwood Pajamas

I'm very excited to be part of Sew Mama Sew's Cloud9 Wildwood Challenge this month. I was so happy when this gorgeous organic cotton fabric, designed by Elizabeth Olwen, arrived on my doorstep. The prints have an art-deco feel to them, and the delicate scale made them perfect for a new pair of PJs.

Inspired Us Thursday, September 18!

Time to show it off and link it up! It's Inspire Us Thursday! Link up your creations in fiber: sewing, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet, whatever.

Today, click on the link just before yours regardless of the medium. Who knows what you'll find. If we only fill our creative wells with projects and styles like our own, our wells, and therefore our work, will become stagnant. Time to look around and see what else is out there.

Last week's most view link: This gorgeous Dip-Dyed Cardigan from Work Pray Sew -- and it was her first time dip-dying! Click through to read more about it, including the modifications Angela made to the original pattern.

Inspire Us Thursday, September 11!

It's Inspire Us Thursday! Time to show it off and link it up! Link up your creations in fiber: sewing, cross-stitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet, whatever. Then stick around to click around and be inspired by all the amazing work out there.

Today, try to click on a link in a medium different from what you linked up: if you're a quilter, click on a knit project; if you crochet, click on something sewn. Inspiration can come from so many different sources. If we only fill our creative wells with projects and styles like our own, our wells, and therefore our work, will become stagnant. Time to look around and see what else is out there.

Last week's most viewed link: You have to click over to see this fabulous collection of dresses with flounces and hoods (love it) at Roby Giup Handmade. This one is my favorite because the ombré flounces mimic waves so beautifully.
