Welcome everyone! I hope you have all had a great week with NO SNOW and lots of sewing! If not, come join me in see what all of our friends have been doing and getting inspired by their successes :o) I may not have much to share this saturday but I am looking forward to seeing lots of crafty goodness from y'all!
I did make these that I forgot to share. First is the funny panty block from the tutorial by Penny from sewtakeahike. This one CRACKS ME UP! I did add the side and bottom bands to my panties.
I also tackled doing paper piecing with LEATHER! The gold lace section of the bra...LEATHER! It is from Lindsay's shop LRstitched and is so easy to sew. I was careful with the ironing but other than that it was no more difficult to sew than regular fabric.
I did forget to share that I made my very FIRST pillowcase! It was for the APQS 1 Million Pillowcase Challenge! One case takes very little time and helps out a sweet child who needs comfort. There are THIRTY NINE free patterns to choose from to make a fun case. I was dropping off my Bernina at my local quilt shop Quilt and Sew and found out they are a participating shop in this event. Kiki even provided the fabric ( and the guidance to make the case). She is so COOL! Thank you Kiki!!!! To find a shop that participates near you please visit All People Quilt Find A Shop.
I am an official member of the Modern Quilt Guild! I need to get that button UP on my sidebar! Are you a member of the MQG?
Finally, here is the incentive for this week to link up...the chance to win a sample set of all the weights of Aurifil and two charm packs of Spirit!!!!! One random winner will be chosen from the linked posts :o)
Let's get our SEWjo (sewing mojo) going! This link up will be open from Saturday through Sunday to give you LOTS of time in case you need to do silly other stuff like make dinner or driving your kids somewhere and then there is always making sure you have good lighting. The things we all have to go through...sigh ;o)
To participate in the party please...
1. Share a project from this past week or TODAY!!! Link it up from your blog or, if you do not have a blog, your Flickr photos. It can be a FABULOUS finish or a WIP ( any progress is always good)that you are working hard to get off your sewing table!
2. Share a link back to SEWjo Saturday somewhere in your post. I would be over the moon if you grabbed the button and shared that too ;o)
3. Share some love with some of the other posters!!!! Visit some of the linked up photos and get inspired by other quilty friends' work. And please leave some sunshine in their comments! Let's support each other!
