    Well I swore I would never be a blog reader but I found angrychicken and looked because of the name and stayed because of contenet. I don’t have a lot of time to read blogs because of other commitments but I have a few bookmarked and have promised myself when I am recuperating from my next surgery I am just going to sit a read the archives. There are so many incredible people keeping blogs now and I am very jealous.

    I read quite a few; lots which I can never recall when I really need something. :) At this time, I am regularly reading (Burda excepted) Adventures in Dressmaking, Dollar Store Crafts, & How About Orange.

    Also, great question, Burda people, because I am learning about so many other sites from the comments!!

    No, there aren’t enough hours in the day for reading blogs. I’ll consult them on specific projects, but not follow anyone.

    So many to choose from, but my fave has to be either Lily chin or Nicky Epstein! I am inspired by Nicky, but always refer to Lily when stuck in a bind!

    I LOVE Secretlifeofabionerd. Not only is sh my hero in sewing, she’s my hero in life, basically. I think that her fashion style is great and basically equates my own (desired) fashion sense. She also makes these amazing pieces and that just SO creative!! Other than her amazing sewing skills, she also diys these home remedies and adds a bit of science, which i LOVE! It’s great to learn a bit randomness with creativity :] Lastly, I used to read her blog before she shut it down and it was just great. It really showed what kind of person she is… So not only did she start me on sewing things, she’s just my hero. Period.

    There are about a zillion blogs I read, or sites I visit, but one that comes to mind easily is Elsie Flannigan. Her style is unique!
