coming soon.. winterkist festy pants

Monica Solario-Snow aka the happy zombie has a new collection coming out this month with Lecien, and we're going to party.  Like it's 1989.  Un huh, drummer pants, big hair, Maybelline on boys.  Winterkist is all about Gnomas (too cute to be evil santa gnome crosses) and subversively awesome xmas colours that you'll find yourself slipping into your regular stash.  Because Monica is One Awesome Broad.  I mean, have you seen her Ron Swanson quilt along?  I'm not cool enough to participate, but believe me, I'm watching from the sidelines and dreaming of 2½" squares of man quilt.

I need to get my butt in gear and start on my project, summer is proving to be very non-productive for me!  And it's not like I have Olympic fever, or whatever.  I don't even have cable!  But interesting side note, my grandfather won a bronze in '32 in sailing.  Good thing they didn't drug test back then, I have the feeling everyone onboard was soused.

So August 6th the blog hop starts, with Winterkist inspired projects 5 times a week from a roster of truly awesome chicks.

  1. Oh I just love the look of that fabric line, I have a feeling I will *need* to buy some...

    As for the drugs test, he'd have been fine, you can be as pished as you like for drugs tests, alcohol isn't a banned substance (which I oftenfound useful when I rowed ;o) )
