Comment of the week: Ellen on yesterday's post -- "You look like America's Next Top Model (senior edition)." Ellen! That's the funniest dose of reality ever. I love it!
I have to give a shout out to Heather. Hey, Heather! I do believe today is Day 10 on the Master Cleanse for you. Yay! You go girl! (Try as I might never to use this phrase, sometimes nothing else will do -- so YOU GO!)
I'm glad you guys like my skirt! It's such a simple, fast project. My garments are pretty humble, but I aspire to this:

This just blows me away. There is nothing about it that I don't worship. I saw it on A Dress A Day, clicked on over to the site of its maker, Trista of Sugardale, and have been gaga over it ever since. I love how clean and crisp it is, its vintage flair, its gorgeous shape, and its unparalleled fit. I'm crazy for it, crazy I tell ya. (Please, God, let me sew like this some day. Please, please, please, please.)
I also want to share these gorgeous bags. They feature incredible attention to detail and truly inspired fabric choices. I'd hock a lung to get my hands on one. Her Etsy shop is empty right now, but I'm stalking it.
Finally, judging by how many of us are on it, many people already know about the Big List of Sewing Blogs. I love clicking through and finding new blogs and seeing new projects. I'll issue an unnecessary warning (because this is so obvious): It's a time sucker. A Black Hole of stitching goodness, to which I just added Purly V. The list's creator is very efficient at adding new blogs, so if you sew and have a blog, drop her a line and join the list. The bigger the better.
