Give me new blogs to read!

I finally cut out We Sew Retro and the Sew Weekly, since I was no longer interested in the posts, but had been not ready to delete them. I also deleted some blogs that hadn't posted for 4 + months. Am I right in thinking if you haven't managed one post in that time, you probably are NOT heading back into blog town?

I found a few new blogs (new to me, obvi) that I am going to add and I got them all from a Cambie dress google image search, if that is random enough (except for Neeno).

Four Square Walls- Andrea is super cute and her projects are really adorable.

Neeno was a link from the last blog. Again, super cute and great clothes. Her bangs are adorable and make me wish I had them. Then, I remember I would look like a turd.

Adrienne also has some cool sewing projects. I seem to really like blogs with good pictures, and am then lazy and only post shitty pictures for my own blog. Food for thought...

Amanda is in Australia (so we get to see summer clothes) and has an amusing writing style.

I also found Claire from a cambie search. More cute projects!

Now, I am out of steam and need to go finish cleaning. My parents are coming to visit for Xmas and they haven't visited us in Chicago since we moved here! It should be a fun visit and I was even able to get all my restaurant shifts covered, so I get a full week of no work! Ehmagerd, I'm so excited.

Happy Holidays and link me to some good blogs if you know of any. You can link your own if you want, but no hugely popular ones. Once people start posting daily about nothing just to drive traffic, I start to seriously lose interest. Give me some blog loot!

  1. How popular can my blog be if I've been known to wait over a month between posts? - but not too often! My recent posts are about gifts I'm making, so come on over to http://mary-sews.blogspot.com/

    1. I do love reading about people who live in Chicago too! We have the same 50s glasses, I don't know if I like or hate that...

  7. Neeno was a new one for me, so thanks for that! Love your blog by the way.

    I blog over at http://www.helenssewingadventures.blogspot.co.uk/ - although posts are somewhat thin on the ground at the moment as I'm training to be a teacher so have very little free time, but I post more regularly than every 4 months I promise! :D

  8. If you like Sew Brunswick, then I suggest Boo dog and me, she's been blogging about 2 years and all the post are good. And she's a sweetie IRL. My Messings is a good blog too!

  9. Aw shucks, thanks for the shout-out! I don't know who you follow and enjoy already, but I see some missing from your side bar blog roll that I regularly read. The gals I look forward to reading for finished project posts or general charming-ness and/or good photos are Paunnet, Crafting a Rainbow, Liza Jane Sews, My Beau Baby, True Bias, Closet Case Files, Sallie Oh, Notes from a Mad Housewife, Dixie DIY, Savory Stitches.... yikes, I read a lot of blogs.
