In case you don't know about it (which would be shocking!), there's a fab blog called The Blue Gardenia, and its got the best giveaway evah! In truth, there are lots of great giveaways and I love them all, but this one kicks some serious ass.
And in a totally weird twist of fate, one piece of the giveaway (yes, it's a bundle of goodies), is the very dress that Gertie will be making in her next sew along.
It's my opinion that you should a) run over to The Blue Gardenia and leave a comment and then b) check out Gerties New Blog for Better Sewing and hope for the best. At a bare minimum, you'll have some great hours reading two fantastic sewing blogs.
Denise (write of The Blue Gardenia) has also captured an audience of sewists - and people who love design - with her "Sewing Spaces" feature. It's the basis of the post I wrote a while ago, wherein I profiled my sewga room. It's so voyeuristic-good to see the sewing studios of many sewing bloggers of note. And it's a great opp to learn about new sewing blogs too...
