In the last month, two things have changed my life, First, I had foot surgery on both feet. Second, I got a new laptop - a MacBook. Well, the surgery has made me spend a lot of time with my feet up (ie, in bed) and the laptop has given me PLENTY to do. I started searching out websites, and discovered my all time favorite, Pattern review where they have reviews on patterns, books, websites, and more. They also have message boards and classes and chats. I have spent hours on this site and have already learned a lot. I also discovered some great online fabric stores which are in my links.
