Saving the planet... one garment at a time!

... and one upcycle at a time... Welcome to my blog: A place to have an "over the fence conversation" about sewing, altered couture, upcycling, and all kinds of crafts using found objects, beads, ephemera and other vintage finds!

I'd Like to Thank...

I am floating on cloud nine this morning because one of my projects, the Upcycled T Shirt, was named as one of the top ten projects submitted to the Green Craft Showcase for March on Crafting A Green World!  I am so honored to be included amongst some fabulous green artists, and I'm thrilled that my entry was the only garment on the top ten.  Thank you to all of you for your support, and your wonderful comments on that project, and on all of my work.  I really appreciate all of you.

And a huge thank you to the very wonderful Denise at The Blue Gardenia learns to sow her blossoms for nominating me for a Liebster Blog Award!  I love Denise's blog, where she chronicles not only her sewing progress, but also gives us little snippets of her life.  I love it when she talks about her dogs, or when one sneeks into a picture when she's showing a completed project.

This is an award for blogs with less than 200 Followers, so, alas, I do qualify.  What's great about this is the extra encouragement and support, and that is the award's intended purpose.  I'm feeling quite encouraged and supported!  It's working already!

What are the rules attached to this award, you might ask? 
  1. Thank the person who nominated me on my blog - Thank you, Denise, I really do appreciate it!
  2. Link to that writer's blog - done, and please do visit not only her blog, but her fabulous pattern shop.
  3. Exhibit the badge on my blog - done.
  4. Nominate five other blogs for the honor to keep the love going!
  5. Leave a comment to let those bloggers know they've gotten a Liebster.
Here are my five picks:
  1. Sewing and Music
  2. Scared Stitchless
  3. Cotton Creek Sewing
  4. Sew Vintage, So Fun!
  5. biblioblog
All of these blogs are great fun, so please be sure to check them out.  I'm very sure you'll be glad you did.


  1. Thank you so much... I really appreciate it! I will be posting about it in the next day.
