My classes and exams are over and I have tried to get back in the groove of sewing and blogging again. It has been crazy the past few weeks and I was seriously sleep-deprived. So imagine my shock and delight when last week, I saw that one of my sewing idols featured me on her blog! Rhonda, of Rhonda’s Creative Life featured me in her “The Wednesday Showcase” post along with another sewing rock star Cennetta ! I nearly fell out of my chair and gasped for breath. Rhonda was so kind and generous in her post- I was really touched (sniff). Being such a blogging newbie I really need to step up my game now to be worthy of being in such a venerable group!
If you haven’t checked out Rhonda’s blog, you should- Rhonda’s work is stunning. What I love about her is that she is a very advanced and highly skilled seamstress but she freely shares her ideas, patterns and tutorials to encourage people of all levels to try various sewing techniques. I also love looking though her work and getting inspired by her boundless creativity. Check out her awesome woven ribbon skirt.
Or this iridescent textured silk strapless dress with a highly boned silk charmeuse bodice.
Or her french “Chanel” style jacket featured at the Haute Couture Club of Chicago fashion show.
Sigh. If I could only be as talented. Did I also mention she is a pilot?! I now have added to my wish list to copy that woven skirt, make a french jacket and explore boning techniques. Oh for more hours in a day!
