I've joined the Mood Sewing Network as an international guest blogger! I can hardly believe it and I keep doing little happy dances every time I remember!
If you don't already know about Mood Fabrics and the Mood Sewing Network then where have you been?!! In a nutshell Mood is a US company who sell beautiful designer fashion fabrics. They have two stores, one in New York (which I was lucky enough to visit last April and which is often featured on the awesome Project Runway) and one in LA. They also have a pretty incredible website and now offer international shipping which is why bloggers outside the US are now able to join the network.
The network itself is a group of sewing bloggers of all abilities who love to make their own clothes! Each month the bloggers (now including me! Eee!!!) get an allowance to spend at Mood to buy the materials to sew a garment of their choosing. Due to international postage times e.t.c I'll be posting every two months rather than the standard monthly post, hence my status as a guest blogger! As is usual, I'll be blogging about my Mood makes both here and on the MSN blog.

Since I found out I've spent more hours than I care to count up browsing the website for ideas and trying to make some decisions, and every time I end up on there I find something else new and spectacular! I've already got more 'Mood Boards' on the go than should probably be allowed and I'm so excited to have such a variety of new to me fabrics at my finger tips! I can't wait to put them to good use making them into my best projects yet.
Thank you to Meg and everyone else at Mood who were involved in the decision to invite me! I'm honoured to be joining such an incredibly talented group of bloggers and am really grateful for this amazing opportunity. I'm looking forward to being able to push the boundaries of my sewing and hopefully step my makes up another level. In case you didn't get it yet...I'm really REALLY excited!
I'm going to borrow the words of Tim Gunn to finish this one off...
