fashion columbia 2008

besides the fact that fashion columbia was an ill run disaster, I had two garments in it. I only have a photo of one coming down the runway, and it’s a blurry one at that. About 5 min. before the show started we (the designers) we pushed back into the back rows.

Back in the fall I submitted one of my patterns to and it was accepted as part of their Alice in Workingland design competition. Today when I checked in on their website, there it was on the front page! They made it in a really cute plaid cotton, now it makes me want to make another in my size (my original is in a model size 6).

I can’t wait to see if people will make it and how theirs come out!


This morning I made blueberry muffins with Trader Joe’s Multigrain Pancake Mix, frozen blueberries and streusel. Lazy? Maybe, but the streusel wasn’t from a box so that counts. They were delicious!

I appear to be on the 4 month posting plan, so I guess that means I’ll be back here in August.
