MOJO In The Mail...

Lately I'd been so caught up with family, personal and work issues that I was totally distracted from sewing. I seriously needed a jump start of some sewing Mojo from somewhere. So, while browsing my favorite blogs I came across Christy's post at "Sew Much Fabric, Sew Little Time" about her new found treasure... the "BRITT" magazine. This magazine is similar to Burda, it shows photos of the styles featured in the magazine and has an insert pattern sheet to trace the pattern from. The instructions are in several foreign languages and includes English. It looked so interesting and I liked the styles shown so I just had to inquire of Christy where to find it online. I was having a heck of a time searching on my own. Christy shared the information on how to get the magazine and then a day or so later she informed me that she actually received a second one from the publisher, since they didn't want it back, she offered to send me the extra copy. It was so sweet of Christy to offer and of course I was more than delighted to have to opportunity to check it out. Within just a few days there it was in my mailbox, instant MOJO in the mail. It was like getting a refreshing drink of water in the desert. So, THANK-YOU Christy, it was so nice of you to send me the BRITT magazine and share your MOJO with me. Hopefully by this weekend I'll have one of the blouse patterns traced and ready to make up a muslin and will have some pictures to share.

Hopefully it will be back soon. I was peeping the book too and was thinking of getting the mag.

I've passed an award on to you on my blog.

How nice! A good way to get that MOJO back. I read her blog about the magazine also and truly a lot of potential sewing projects included.

Thank you ladies! Yes the mojo is back alive and working. As soon as I got the BRITT magazine I started planning. Before long...I was tracing, cutting and putting together a muslin. Hope to have some pictures soon.

Your mojo is back!!! Yea!!
Sewing is a lot of work but it is very rewarding expecially when people ask you where you bought your outfit.

Do you sew for people or only for your personal uses?
