Sew: a needle pulling thread

Last night I was altering a top I got this weekend from the new location of Angel Street Thrift Shop- I am happy to say that they decided to come to my own neighborhood and the shop is very nice. The interior is clean, modern and not at all cluttered. As I was sewing through layers of denim I broke my needle and it came flying toward my eye (blindness happens to be my worst fear).

Just as I overcame that trauma and regained my excitement for sewing Alison sent me the link to Burda Style. It is an open source sewing site that allows users to post their own creations and patterns. I am excited to find some fun patterns and hopefully create something wearable.
