The Minerva Sewing Network

Thursday, August 1

Ok, so, I'm out of the ground. Yeah I bet you all thought I was going to come back with some more baby news. nah nah. My body is still recovering post Noah, and I am still struggling to get back to pre-baby body, but the chocolates won't let me be. As much as I love Noah, i don't think my body is ready for another bout of stretching.  No, something's managed to drag me out of hibernation. Oh yes peeps, that something is the Minerva Blogger Network. I was so happy when I was asked to join the Network.  Thanks Rach and Vicki. Rachel and Vicki have been hard at work on this initiative, for months now, and I'm so glad I can finally talk about it.

The way it works, is that every month, we get an allowance, which allows us to choose stuff from the Minerva Crafts shop, make something, and share it on our blogs, and the Minerva craft Blog. In true Dibs style, I was the last to select my package, yeah I was confused. So much to choose from. Rachel had to threaten me, before I finally selected what I wanted. So, coming up, from La Casa Dibs, is a dress made from this fabric

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you will know that I LOVE bright colours. Love it much?

So, the Blogger Network is made up of 8 bloggers, whom I'm sure alot of you are familiar with.

So, from top left to bottom right,

Winnie of Scruffy Badger
Shivani of Pins and Needles
Rachel of House of Pinheiro
Anna of Paunnet
Kathryn of Yes I Like that
Yours truly
Jane of Handmade Jane
Clare of Sew Dixie Lou

So there, I suppose I have no excuse now, right? I really do have to make stuff. So stay tuned,  I'm sure I will be able to crank out a not too shabby dress.

    It was, unfortunately, in pieces and thus unusable, but
    they wanted to put it back together making it
    willing to fly to the low, low expense of yet another $9 million. One of
    the extremely useful from e - Bay tools suite I founded on web can be a extension from Dynami -
    Xgate , called Word - Press - Bay (simple WPBay)
    , highly customizable , with many different unseen features on other
    plugins e - Bay tools related, specially developed
    to satisfy the growing needs of online marketers and designed for very
    easy use.
