Many people are ending 2012 by awarding well-deserved blogger awards to sewists who brighten our days with their creations and comments.
But I'm starting the Chinese New Year of the Snake with a sneaky shout-out to missing friends of the Dead Sewing Blogs. Are they shedding their skins for a new incarnation? Can we look forward to seeing them rise again?
It came to my mind when I realized that most of my favorites bloggers don't list links to me, boohoo! and woops! my own blog list is a little out of date and ??? where had some of my favorite bloggers gone?
Obviously, some of them were sucked into that happy void known as new motherhood. Here I count ladies I really looked to for some nice craftmanship and creativity. Lost...lost...somewhere in their designer nurseries are:
But how to explain some of the others (apart from Lindsay T at http://www.lindsaytsews.com/, who signed off with tremendous elegance and clarity,) just vanished into a frozen cyberzone of dresses from 2010 or 2011?
Like the disappearance of Birgitte at http://bubblegum4breakfast.blogspot.ch/?
Birgitte's recreations of runway items were equal to none. I fear her months of working on a Balenciaga jacket burned her out.
Or Eugenia in London at http://theworldofeugenia.blogspot.ch/
Not even a little knit dress for us, Eugenia?
Please give us a sign of life. I am actually worried about you ladies. I lost 2009 myself to an illness that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy. Hope you're well and thriving.
