It's been a while since I've posted and I hate neglecting my little blog, so here is some "birdspiration". I love birds and everything to do with birds and recently a lot of clothing and fabric has been popping up with bird themes. I am in love with all of them! And thanks to my newfound addiction to pinterest, I have been collecting different items with bird themes. So here you go!

I love sales...

I had to go to JoAnn's this week to pick up a few odds and ends for my fiber art class and just because I can't not look at patterns, I noticed Simplicity patterns were on sale for $1.99! I love it when they do that! So I picked up two Lisette patterns.

I don't know when I'll be able to use them, but I've been eyeing them for a while and they were really cheap, so hey. I know I will use them eventually!

So a little while ago, Adventures in Dressmaking sponsored a giveaway from Fat Quarter Shop for their Poetica line. And I just so happened to win! So I went with this lovely:

Daylight Serenade
So I have three yards of this lovely, and rather soft and smooth, cotton just waiting to be made into something. I'm not really sure what though! Two ideas I have are the Colette Truffle dress or the Lisette Portfolio dress. I know I definitely want something fun and good for the summer-like spring weather around here, so if any of you in the sewing blogosphere have any suggestions, I am open to anything, be it a dress, top, or skirt.
