PTI Favorites: Celebrating the Past, Present & Future

I can still remember when I discovered Papertrey Ink and soon told anyone else I knew who was making cards.  Each month I eagerly awaited the new releases.   PTI paper is still my favourite.
Here are some cards from the past that I still am happy with.  Amazing how your style changes over the years and the products available now compared to 10 years ago is mind-boggling.  And where would we be without the internet and talented designers who blog?

Oliver + S Gallery Tunic Sew-a-Long

I decided to try sewing for myself for the first time in ages and to participate in a sew-a-long for the first time ever.   I used a piece of fabric I've had for ages and I think it is silk if I remember correctly. The pattern instructions are clearly written and I didn't have any problems.   If I make it again, I'd do the 3/4 length sleeve and the other collar.  The pattern fit quite well, perhaps a little too roomy at the hips and I'd prefer a bit more room in the sleeves since the fabric has no stretch.
