Archives 2/19- 2/25 2005-2009

It’s the close of another week yet it almost seems like the beginning. It had been dreary and cold all week but today, Mother Nature became quite charming, bestowing us with balmy breezes and bright sunshine. I even saw my first bee of the season. By all accounts, spring is coming. Couldn’t be too soon for our friends farther north.

Here’s to a happy productive yet relaxing weekend. As always, today’s post is a selection from the archives for this week in blog history. There’s more content than usual due to the trade show reviews from various attendees.

    I just lost 20 minutes reading all of the links, with 365 news left in Google Reader.

    Kathleen, thank you for all the information! Your blog is excellent! My only wish is that one day you make a book, complete with all of your knowledge in regards to patternmaking, and don’t forget us men in the process.
