Welcome to my blog where I post at random intervals to brag about something that I have made, tell you about my family, whine about something that bugs me or just generally ramble!
For 2010 I thought that it would be great for us who sew to be challenged a little or a lot- depending on what takes your interest.
So each month I will be posting a challenge. Each month you (the blogger) can sign up for the challenge. It would be fun to blog about your challenge thought the month, but its not essential.
You can participate each month, or just for one month, depending on what your life is throwing at you at the time.
The first sign up will be in the first (starting the 1st) of each month, and ‘presenting’ your projects will be in the last week of each month. (again there are no rules)
But remember… it is to challenge you. So if you think “oh no I cant insert zips” maybe that’s the month that you sign up so that you can learn.
At the end of the month blog your project, even if its still a WIP. There will also be a flickr group HERE so that you can scroll through projects quickly- or if you want to join in but dont have a blog.
I will try and include free patterns and tutorials to help you along your way. Im still learning too!
There will also be some free giveaways at random times!
The challenges are:
January: something for me
February: something in knit
April: something lined
May: enclosed zip
June something self designed or drafted.
July: something with pleats
August: hand embroidery/ smocking
October: refashioned (visit your op-shop and create something new!)
November: Something for the Christmas tree
December: sharpen your skills on one of the challenges!
Thank you to Romi for the button and to Tracy and Suzanne for being a sounding board for the challenges.
So... Would love for you to be involved as little or as much as your life can take. Feel free to send me an email or comment if you have any questions or ideas.
I'm a happy clappy Christian, wife, mum, and nurse. I try anything crafty and am resiting the urge to take up more hobbies. Please feel free to browse my blog, leave a message for me, love to hear from you.
