Re: The CA Summer Dress 2014

Love the dress!

Re: Fall 2014 Color Trends Abandon Typical Palette

I like most of the colors, not sure about the Aluminum though. I have strawberry blonde hair and think that color would not look good on me. I did just buy a blouse (I know- I could have made it!) that has the Aurora Red and Cognac in it. Love the color combination!

Re: The Bag-Lady Giveaway: Four handbag books and a quilted bag to carry them all!

I like a bag with a zippered middle section (inside) and lots of pockets inside and out!

Re: Win a Copy of Serger Techniques on DVD!

I love my serger, but would love to learn more than just finishing seams and rolled edges!

Re: What to do with a Sari

After reading your article I decided to check out "an Etsy seller in India". Oh my goodness, she has some beautiful saris! I finally settled on 2 and they arrived today. They are absolutely gorgeous!! I can't wait to make something with them. My question is - how do you rid the fabric of the smell and do you dry clean or hand wash the fabric? Thank you for your article.

Re: What to do with a Sari

I like the idea of maing a tunic out of the sari fabric. I have used obi (the sash thatgoes around a kimono)to make pillows. I lived in Japan for @ 3 1/2 years and went to the shrine markets (think flea market)whenever I could. I must haveclose to 50 obi - I use them for table runners and wall hangings. I bought some of them to make pillows or clothing out of, but they are so gorgeous that I cannot bring myself to cut them. Maybe one of these days..

Re: DVD GIVEAWAY: Industry Insider Techniques with Louise Cutting Volumes 1-4

I saw some of the videos on the Insider web page and loved them!! I liked the way Louise Cutting explained everything - not over my head or below my level, just right!! Would love to have these DVD's :)
