I wish I was cool enough to be all chill when I get asked to participate in sewing extravaganzas.  But no.  I'm not there yet.

So it will come as no surprise to you that when I got an email from Jess & Celina asking me to participate in STYLO 4 I thought I was dead.

No really.

I thought I had died and gone to sewing heaven.  I tried to stay calm. I tried tell Superman nonchalantly, but I think everything came out in high pitched squeaks.  And consequently, he's had to deal with a wife who's been running around like a chicken without a head for the last few weeks....

But perhaps my geekiness is making you uncomfortable.  Let's bring it in.

Nope.  Can't.  Here's the thing.  STYLO is a magazine I've admired ever since the first issue came out.  It's a beautiful inspiration--not a competition, just creative sewing.  Perfect!  I am secretly convinced that I was emailed by mistake.  But you'd better believe that I wasn't gonna let them know they emailed the wrong girl.  Darn it, I'm gonna pull a Cinderella, go to the ball and wear those glass slippers come heck or high water!

The theme of this issue was high fructose.  Such fun!  And as part of the fruit category, I went with a citrus theme.

The biggest challenge of the whole thing {aside from getting my kids to look immeasurably happy} was that it wasn't super warm or green here in Idaho yet.

But my kids were troopers about pretending it was the warmest summer day ever!  I combined the citrus with a little slice of urban and came up with URBAN CITRUS.  Very clever, I know.  ;)

For the record, I was trying to be a fair mom so I originally included Sophia.

But as you can see, she was focused on two things: fruit and drooling on her dress ....so she got to go suck on her lemon behind the scenes. ;)

Hop over to STYLO4 to see more and be ready to be inspired by all the sewers in the land!  I promise it'll make you happy.  :)

And as an extra bonus, get 10% off at Girl Charlee & Micheal Levine Fabrics in celebration of STYLO4!  (Look through the magazine for details)  Woot Woot!

Now off you go and let the sewing eye candy begin!
