30DoC: Look Out Your Window

Friends, when I look out my window, everything sparkles:

 I definitely wanted to make a shirt that reflected this awesome quality of my living space.  I used New Look 6648 and some FABULOUS fabric that had been lingering in my stash for way too long, and bada bing bada boom:

Once I found out this fireplace worked, I parked myself in front of it.  I am currently roasting like a pale puffy marshmallow and loving every minute of it.

This is probably my favorite version of this pattern that I have done.  I did not expect to enjoy the look of the sparkles so much, and I definitely didn't expect it not to itch.  Not itching = fabulous.

Seriously, I ask you: what's Thanksgiving without a little vampirism?

Speaking of Thanksgiving, we have been cooking all day in preparation for tomorrow's feast.  Friends who are celebrating:  Have a fantastic day with your families and friends, and Happy Thanksgiving!

To all of my other friends who do not celebrate, have a fantastic day anyway :)


  1. YAY for sparkles, warm fires and fabulous views!! Enjoy your turkey day!! xoxoxo

  2. Not itching is always a pleasant surprise! Although perhaps it shouldn't really be a surprise...more an expectation. I don't know if I would ever have the wherewithal to commit the time and resources to such an attention-grabbing top. But I really like this top on you!

  3. so beautiful. Enjoy celebrating. x x x

  4. Sparkletastic!! I heart that fantastic fabric!! And your fireplace? So. Jealous.

    Happy Thanksgiving!
