All good blogs have an "About Me" page (I have been told) but I dragged my feet writing one. Well, I finally did it, and added it to my side-bar. it's all about me, me, me! Now I want to create a cute button. That is a boring little link, if you ask me.
OK, enough about me.
What do you think about me?
Sewing Mojo!! It is back!
I am going to participate in the 2012 SWAP (Sewing With a Plan) held on the Stitchers Guild sewing discussion forum.
The rules (taken directly from the website):
This year, our SWAP will focus on fitting, and making tried-and-true patterns: testing and fitting paper patterns, muslins, and fashion garments that will help lower the overall sewing failure rates, result in fabulous clothing to be proud of, and (hopefully) give every contestant a pattern or two that works every time it is used.
Choose any seven garments from this list:
Button-up Shirt w/Collar
Shorts or Capri Pants
Overcoat or Raincoat
Bathing Suit & Coverup
From those seven, choose four to make twice for a total of 11 garments that will work together.
I am all over this! Can't wait to start planning. The hardest part of sensible sewing is the boredom factor. I will need to keep things interesting enough to beat the boredom.
Anyone else thinking about sewing some coordinating items? Or does that just kill the buzz for you? Sometimes, I really need to sew something frivolous, so I understand!
