Sew & Tell Saturday

Hey readers! Yippeee!! I am so excited I have to share that I will be speaking at the Craftcation Conference sponsored by Burdastyle in Ventura, California in March. What will I be speaking about? You will never guess....not sewing, but raising chickens and handmade country living! When I first started my blog I wanted to write about what it is like to move to the country from the city to live a handmade life. Somewhere along the way the blog became only about sewing and I would like to start to post more stories about my experiences here from time to time and starting this week I will be doing just that. I also will be spotlighting a different creative blogger that I think is cool each week as well as my sewing linky party Sew& Tell each Saturday. I hope you will stick around!
Here are some featured projects from last week:
A flirty and fun double ruffled skirt made from Alexander McQueen fabric from Christy at Little Betty Designs made from Burda 7370. What a cute photo Christy!

Claire Gail from Baby Boudoir over yonder in Tazmania makes the most original and delicious kids clothes! I love her blog. 

A lovely and simple shirtdress made from a Megan Nielson pattern by Andrea at Four Square Walls.

I REALLY love this bag and color combination by Casandra at Made Down South

So are you ready to show off your sewing projects this week?
Now, if you've been to this party before you can skip this boring part coming up but if you haven't, read on!
Link the post of your project in the InLinkz form and not your blog homepage. Please leave a link back to this blog by copying my party badge html below to your post or sidebar or party page so others can find out about the party.
And please do visit ablog or two here and leave a comment. To you non blogging readers out there, we love comments!
And I love new Followers and FB likes of course! Don't you? You know you do!
If you don't have anything new you are welcome to dig back in your blog and sometimes everything old is new again, right? Like high waisted jeans! As long as we haven't seen it yet.
