A Little Bliss {List~Ten}

Hello friends!  The arrival of the weekend brings with it another opportunity to link up with the Choosing Beauty Little Bliss List and share some bliss.  Please join; you can link your post until Sunday at midnight central time!

The eye candy that is Mad Men has returned for another season!  There are so many reasons that I love this show, and the fashions are not least among them.  I am already on the hunt for bubblegum pink fabric to recreate Betty's dress!

I walked outside the other day and saw that the violets had returned.  Spring Bliss!

Brand new green leaves and a few remaining white blossoms against a perfect blue sky equals a very colorful bliss.

Unexpectedly catching this bird in flight brought bliss to this fledgling photographer!

I just discovered that there is a Vintage Pattern sewing contest going on at Pattern Review, and that there is just enough time left for me to take part!  It ends on April 15, so I choose this pretty simple wrap dress from my stash as my first choice.  I'm hoping that a tissue fit shows that no major alterations will be required.  If all goes well, I'll be making the sleeveless version from this animal print, a linen silk blend, with the contrast from black radiance, a cotton silk blend. 

I hope that you'll come back next week; I'll either have progress pictures of this one, or details about my second choice.  And as soon as I finish this, I'll be starting one of my choices for That's Sew Cinematic

What's bringing you bliss this week?  Please share; I would love to hear!

xoxo, Anita
