7. Rhonda - www.rhondabuss.blogspot.com
Rhonda is going to tackle her UFO's - maybe this month a black cashmere coat for winter.
And lastly, me :)
I'm in the middle of making muslins for New Look 6095:
I have an exceptionally straight back and I knew this would cause fitting issues:
I'll do a blog post on my project next week.
I'll be paying everyone a visit over the next week or so to see what you are doing - then letting everyone know here - this is a great way for everyone to meet new bloggers and see more sewing :)
Also, some of you are not sure how to install a blog button on the sidebar with the HTML code. I'll do a quick post on that tomorrow.
And here is the up-to-date blog roll. You can find a copy anytime on the top toolbar of my blog - Make a Garment a Month Challenge.
Happy sewing everyone,
Sarah Liz :)
(If I have left any of you off this roll, please do let me know :))
