P.S. I reopened yesterday's box and here is a photo of the contents. Isn't it amazing to think that this pile of fabric, thread, and beads will become the Spiral Applique & Beaded Camisole Dress (except my base fabric  is black instead of green)!

I enjoyed the first book so much! I can't wait to see this one.

I love the idea of this book. Combining many of our passions (cooking and projects are my top 2!) into one book is a terrific idea. I can't wait to see it. Sustainability is an important topic too. Very cool.

February 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteramy

Wow - really inspiring. I've been dying to start an Alabama Studio Style skirt or shirt...perhaps today is the day!

I making a quilt and am inspired by this aesthetic. I first read about her in Sewing Green. (This is my first quilt.)

One of my goals this new year is to learn how to knit! Thank you.

I have been running to the mailbox every day waiting for my book to arrive. Maybe tommorrow....... I just can't wait to start on a new AC project!

February 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDebbie

Natalie's style is infectious! I love what I can tell is coming about the book and am inspired to start a project with some reverse embroidery and a re-used fabric scraps...also the burdastyle contest is awesome...keep the cool stuff coming, Melanie & company!

February 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrachaek

February 9, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterkendra

I can't afford to buy her beautiful clothes, but I can take the time to make one! I'm looking forward to her new book. Lovely.

I really admire your style and all the amazing things you make!

February 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSujing Yang

This book is something I've been waiting for what seems like forever......... I am so excited to go on Natalie's blog tour too!! Thanks for posting the schedule.

You have such great craft books, if I don't have the new book by the time of this contest that will be my pick, if not, one of the other fine books from STC Craft!

Oh, and did I mention that MARCH 9th is my 25th birthday? oh yeah, so that would be a wonderfullllll birthday gift!

thanks Melanie!

This book looks great. I can't wait to see it when it comes out. Some some reason I seem to have problems getting to this website it's slows my computer.


February 9, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMelodyJ

This is an exciting tour! Can't wait to see your dress in progress- while you sew, I'll be knitting two moebius shawls for February birthdays.

I am trying to keep my excitement in check as mine has to ship to the UK. I have to finish the hexagon quilt I am hand sewing for my sister before I can start any new projects though, so the delay is a good thing.

February 10, 2010 | Unregistered Commenternic

I was so happy to find your site when looking for knitting projects. Things are so stressful that having multiple knitting projects going at once is helping to keep me sane lately! I'm so looking forward to seeing more inspiration for projects, and will be following the blog tour -- what a cool idea~

February 10, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterAngela Loomis

Working on the bloomers skirt, cami and a piece I started while attending the spring workshop last year; a beautiful wrap dress in the plum color!

What will be the summers hottest book? Natalie's of course!!

February 10, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterheather

I can't wait for my copy of Alabama Studio Style to arrive in the mail. I want to make several of the projects already and I've only seen sneak peeks.
