Happy Wednesday!  This has been a busy week for me as I gear up for the release of my next pattern! I am so excited to share it with you all and I am also really looking forward to being ‘done’. Do you ever get the feeling with projects? It can be so challenging to reach the finish line sometimes, but it always feels amazing when you make it. Stay tuned next week for the big reveal! *insert smiley squeal here* 🙂

Blog Comments

Great roundup as always. I love reading these and look forward to them each week!

Thank you, Lisa! That is always so nice to hear 🙂

Thanks for the shout-out, Helen!

My pleasure, Carmen! That blouse is stunning!!

Thank you for including my make! Some fab signposting as usual – I always find inspiration and new blogs to follow through your posts 🙂

Thanks, Shauni! Fantastic job on that dress and I’m glad you got your sew-jo back 😀

Thank you for including me

My pleasure, Mimi! I love your new designs 🙂

Hi Helen,
I’m de-lurking to comment. I, uh, knew you when we were kids? Our moms are friends; Wendy and I are FB friends, which is how I initially ended up here. True story, and it’s too weird to comment without owning it. But, I actually just wanted to tell you how much I have been enjoying your posts. I have been getting back in to garment sewing in the last 6 months and it is fun and inspiring to see what you’ve been up to and also to see the round ups. So thank you!
