You can read more about Kid's Clothes Week here on their blog, but basically it's a giant sewalong, and the basic premise is to spend one hour a day, for one week, sewing clothing for kids! I do a lot of that, anyway - but the specific week starting on January 27th will ensure that I get at least ONE project finished! I'm very good at starting things and not finishing them, although this blog has helped with that (if nothing else, I have to sew so I have something to post!)
I've read about KCW but never participated, so this is a first for me. My user profile is here, and I'll be posting photos of my project(s) there! If you've been debating on joining in yourself, do it - we all can use that little bit of extra motivation that an organized event gives us, right?
The Getting Skinny! sewing swap is hosted by Amy from Amy Made That!. I discovered her blog just tonight! - following a recommendation from another person on a Facebook group I belong to. I read about the sewing swap, and it sounds like so much fun! How could I resist? I'll be making a skinny pincushion (free tutorial here) and sending it off to another participant somewhere in the U.S. - and someone else - could be in the States, could be international - will be sending me one! (I might be finding some other little presents to include as well - we'll see!) If you sew, go to the blog and email Amy to join in! Sign up is open until January 31st!
(and haha, I didn't mean actually getting skinny. Although that should probably be a goal too ;) )
Tomorrow I'll post a few things I've been working on (and hopefully finishing tonight!) Plus, the final stage of the SewCanShe log cabin sewalong is coming up on Wednesday - need to finish up my second set of blocks. :) Back to work!
