A couple of neat tutorials that caught my eye

Vintage pattern sizing:
This is one of the topics I get the most e-mails and questions about, so I figured it was time for a post on the subject! Vintage patterns get a bad rap for being extremely difficult to fit, but they're really no worse than modern patterns, I think.

Hand Stitching Projects:
My "big project" for 2011: a plain dress that's becoming a beetle-themed embroidery sampler. A mixture of applique and surface techniques with a steep learning curve! I might even finish it before summer is out...
