Makes in the Wild and Exciting News

Some exciting news!:

First, my blog's gotten a couple shout-outs recently... my Comox trunks for Tim played a part in the Thread Theory Comox Trunk parade and my Lisette Attache peplum blouse wrangled its way into a spot in Made by Rae's Spring Top Sewalong wrapup!  Yay!

Second, I am a pattern tester for a brand new pants pattern by the stylish Kelli over at True Bias... the Hudson pant (check out her preview on Instagram)!  I am so excited!  Can you tell by the number of exclamation points I have used so far in this post (5 thus far)?

And, the cherry on top, I was chosen to be part of the blog tour for the next Perfect Pattern Parcel, a great project supporting two worthy causes: independent sewing pattern designers and  Check out the new PPP blog here.  More on that project in a few weeks!!

This is how I feel about all of this news:

"I'm somebody now!"
"Things are going to start happening to me now!"

OK, back to makes in the wild:  I just wanted to show you some of my makes on their new owners... they always look better photographed on the intended recipient than on a hanger!

A closer view of Zoe in her Skater dress, layered over a long-sleeved tee:

Zoe adores her scarf hat thingy I knit her last year.  This is her picking out a Christmas tree (way back in December) while wearing it, but she also frequently just wears it around the house on her own accord, just for kicks, which cracks me up:
